CS95: Is anyone still wearing it?

#1
Had a draft to a unit where camouflage gear is the working rig rather than normal naval number 4's.
on the draft order JPA says to rock up in DPM CS95s, thus that's what the dockyards stores have issued me but surely everybody is in mtp pcs by now?

That will be JPA not able to be changed as we have run out of money. You should have got PCS in MTP but I suspect they are just clearing out stocks from the back. If it is a Bootie unit see the QMs department and get it swooped.

Also check with your new DO and they should tell you what the correct rig is.

I saw some scruffy joker wearing it today in the centre of town, he also had a very ally molle type daysack a la ops. But if he had been on ops surely he'd have MTP?

Plus, he hadn't shaved for a week either, had a civvy jacket and no beret.. probably just a walt. He was giving out the 1000 yard stare to anyone that dared look at him too.

There are some still cutting around Aldershot in CS95, not sure if these people are TA or not though.

I'm still in 95s, though I'm off on a course so haven't had it swapped. Stores told me to do one when I went and enquired, so that'll be me waiting til I get back.

Being on ops doesn't guarantee that he'd have been allowed to wear anything MTP when he got back, I wasn't until the whole unit was issued with PCS.

We just switched after rememberance Sunday not sure if it was a Bde thing or to stop people turning up in various states for parades etc I'd suspect the latter

Or more likey the walty CCF instructor at my work who rocks up on a Monday morning in full C95 kit claiming he's got to wear it as he goes straight to the unit from work=-\\\\

Now it used to be the ally/warry thing to do and continue to wear selected bits of the older style uniform (Trops and Web belts etc) when any new stuff came on line.

What chance that any part of the CS95 will retained as the thing to wear?
