Can HAC wear Household Division?

#6
Agree with Carlos on all counts. Though I assume you're question may be driven more by the fact that Smart Turnout seem to think they can "pad out" their HAC range of paraphernalia with Houshold Division clag. Lets face it, if it can be branded up the HAC have probably had a batch of the item run off at some point. I mean for instance:
HAC slippers
HAC Waistcoat

FFS a Train

And keep it hush... they don't bother with the SA80 - it jams unlike this proven preferred personal weapon

LOL. Typical of the posy ponces who join the HAC these days. All about ceremonial and dressing up. But then it always was wasn't it ? Not like you have a credible official operational role other than gun salutes and providing IRs to random under-strength RA units. God knows why you lot bother with all that tabbing...not like you're ever going to use it is it ? Man up and go to 21....

The ones who I met on Herrick 6 certainly had a credible role.....
You're missing the point old chap.

Of course they had a credible role because they were filling specific PIDs on an operation. But then so could have just about anyone. BRF-fill-ins, joystick operator on base ISTAR or staff monkey are all credible roles per se. But that's not the same as saying that the Regiment has a credible role.....other than providing IRs as fast as it can to any job going in order to justify its existence.

You're just jealous because your unit doesn't have a train.

Anyway, the HAC's role is to provide an air of dash and elan to an otherwise dreary and shite Territorial Force staffed by gopping Gareth fucks.

More than credible methinks.

No, Carlos. Just pointing out some uncomfortable home truths which you never like to admit to, preferring to run behind the defence of "we have people on operations so we have a role." The HAC is a great resource of smart people. Just don't pretend it's something that it isn't. And currently (well...since about 1990) what it isn't is a formed unit with a credible role other than generating individual reinforcements for largely gunnery-related jobs. What bemuses me is that you persist with all this silly running up and down hills.....though I'm told that you're not taking that as seriously as you once did in any case. Last time you put out a full Sqn OP matrix and communicated over skywave.....?

Good luck with someone finding you something to do in the Future Army post Herrick and the requirement to prop-up 5 Reg undermanning.

The Official London Marching Up And Down Regiment ?
The Dressing Up and Going to Balls Regiment ?
