Charity Wristbands in Uniform?

#1
I'm all for money raising schemes for good causes and fully support initiatives to raise cash but should we really be wearing them in full display with uniform? Bright coloured wristbands aren't part of the uniform so should we be wearing them while on duty? Where do we draw the line? Will it lead to the acceptance of other things ....for example in extremis - males wearing ear rings, wearing non military badges supporting charities etc etc

I can't see the Infantry / Paras etc doing this sort of thing. Particularly the Guards. Can you imagine the shouting and duff dikeing that would ensue? Nightmare.

But it happens and seems to be spreading. What is the chain of comd doing about it? Or do they not have the moral courage to make what might be taken as a bad decision. I se them being worn by all ranks...officers, seniors and privates!

They look fcukin' God awful in my opinion. If you want to support a charity then do so but in civvies not in bloody uniform. I've seen individuals with umpteen of the feckers on their arms, get rid till your in your pulling gear.

Alot of our rear party were wearing "Support the Grenadier Guards" wristbands this summer. I believe they were on sale in the Guard room at one point

Doesn't mean they should be wearing them in uniform

I was going to say they shouldn't be worn, but then remembered that I wear a desert Felix on my smock, so i'll keep my peace (even though wristbands look wrong).

I would suggest that on camp ect then deffo not,however should the lads be cutting around off camp on 'unofficial duties' in uniform (getting slabs in ect) then perhaps yes.
