Spending so much time in the field, I guess the Army don't have much time for haute couture, but spare a thought for the crabs who have to look good in five star hotels.

That's just as well considering you look bollocks in barracks, uniform and each others anuses.

I rather think that this is - as predicted - the result of the MoD (rather than the RAF, AIUI) deciding that it could make money out of the roundel. Don't be too surprised if an range of FAA clothing follows once MoD works out that the roundel isn't just used by the RAF...

The MoD tried to get Ben Sherman to pay for using the roundel, spending a fair amount of money (wonder if anyone's FOI'd that?) taking them to court and losing. They then signed some sort of licencing agreement with the company that does the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to produce children's products; since the roundel is in use, it was always held that the RAF wings would be used for any MoD-sponsored (i.e. they get a fee) clothing to avoid the MoD getting into the position whereby Ben Sherman sued them for using the roundel.

The thing, is that if this works, don't be surprised to see the MoD enthusiastically trying to get other clothing ranges using badges, symbols, etc.

So we could end up with a range of sportswear with the cap-badge of the Paras as the logo; riding kit with the badge of a cavalry regiment, etc, etc. If anyone thinks I'm making this up, look at http://www.ams.mod.uk/ams/content/docs/widrmkts/wmguide.htm and

(BTW, the Typhoon trainer, much lampooned on Pprune would seem not to have been a commercial success...)

I want one of those maternity tents that pregnant crabettes wear!
Seriously, when will hard work and sacrifice become "fashionable" in the RAF? ( Frontline Aircrew excepted)
