Define Allyness in one sentence.

We now have two threads worth of 'Allyness'



Rather than posting 'ally' photos, or listing 'ally' kit, I thought it might be interesting to see who could come up with the best one sentence definition of 'allyness'.

Starter for ten.

Allyness: The art of conveying, by demeanour, or dress that you are a hyper professional mega soldier from the Planet Zog.

(Apologies to the brewers of Skol).
The ability to make yourself standout while still maintaining operational security....


....The ability to appear in Soldier Magazine while in none issue kit
Where one's appearance is the result of experience, not what the other bloke wears, or what was in a film, but what real experience has shown to work.

Cardinal - spot on.

As I've said before, a CS 95 smock is ally in the right hands. The worlds most elaborate assault vest is rubbish in another's.
Looking as if you know what you're doing, even if you don't.

Take that gwar beardy bleurk on the other thread. He might sound like Dale Wynton, but he don't fookin' look like him!
The art of conveying, through the medium of uniform and equipment, just how much experience and knowledge one has, to make his life more comfortable.
I am not sure if it is what you are wearing, or your deeds that is "ally".

It was said a long time ago, by a better man than me and he was definitely wearing the right gear.

"I'm going out, I may be some time."
