What happened to the good ole dezzy welly? When I joined in the 80's it was part of the uniform!
What's this got to do with joining up?
obviously sprogs then. Live a little! ffs
It was SOP in Aldershot, if you didn't wear it you singled yourself out for a good kicking. Don't forget the flying jacket for wet weather!
Nobody wears them any more because blokes all want to look like they are in a boy band nowadays.
Actually, the Clarks desert boot (My preference)is widely regarded as a design classic. The higher leg desert boot was more commonplace;I seem to remember a few nailed to the wall of 9 Sqn bar in the Hollinghurst.
Not taking the urine mate, but would you like to explain your avatar.
I've never seen a beret like that before, is it for a special unit or something?
PLs tell me this is a wah....
My wah-o-meter has just exploded.
Put him out of his misery before the dogs of war log in and see this post and tear him apart.
Too late I fear.
Oh I see, It's a 3 para beret is it?
I should have known better!
Wah my arse!
Yeah mate, that's it, it's a 3 para beret.
1 para has red behind their cap badge and 2 para has blue behind theirs.
Yes mate, when you were in maybe! ie Never!
Or is it a 15 Para cap badge backing, but the Hunting Stewart doesn't show up properly! It must've washed out!
Or could it be a Para 49 beret specificially the Piefinder Company, because only a fat wannabe would have a beret like that.
I know, it's a Junior Para one, but the colour has faded into green!
