Dress code

Bit of a bone comment I know but I just had to ask the question.

Just got back from the local Memorial and saw a T.A. R. Sigs full screw on parade in CS95 with a full rack of gongs dangling away in the morning sun.
Is it normal to wear your medals with CS95?
I had heard that No.2's aren't issued anymore to Regulars let alone TA so that could explain it, it was a fairly impressive rack of silverware and I guess you'd want to wear it somehow even if you don't have 2's.
Does anyone know what the dress regs are?
It just seemed to me to look a bit Septic where I think they pin their ribbons to their pajamas given half a chance.

Having served with TA Units in the past it is normal for them to wear their medals on CS95. This is only the norm for parades, such as Rememberance, as the majority do not have No 2 Dress.

Who gives a fcuk what they wear so long as its smart, well turned out and more importantly 'there'

If someone wants to march past in a gimp outfit, medals, flippers and a trilby it wouldn't bother me..... so long as they had a shaggin hair cut :D

Didn't see you at the cenotaph on SKY dressed like that MDN, must have been when they cut to some minister trying to big themselves up.

Fair comments about TA lack of 2s, I guess it might be considered a waste of money by the MOD to let them have the kit.

You're all right, he WAS on parade, and he had definately done his part for HM

TA 100% SNCO and above
JNCO a pool to be held at 50% of established strength

JSP 336 Vol 12 Part 3 it’s in Pam 1 I believe.

This may be changing with the new service dress but I believe it is about the same.

The whinge if any should be directed to your QM

I took my lads to the one at Stretford memorial this morning.

There was a TA full screw there in CS95 with the most massive 'pi-sstank to waist size' ratio i've ever seen.

His belt must have been a 28 incher, but the beer gut hanging over the top of it, was at least the size of a Cinquecento.

That's because you are a civvy, and only did 9 years. You big woofter.

And?

Youve done much more time, with far less to show for it other than a cnut full of many mens batter. Only six gongs in all that time, and one of them will be a jubillee no doubt.

Waste of skin and air

Percy, You sound like you know something of the new service dress, could you give a brief update as to what is happening?

Nope, I didn't have a suit on, and was tired of wearing my twos.

I fecking hate bullies who give it the large.

RHM, how many medals did you earn in your whole 9 years?
 
#18
4 that ok? Not sure they were earned though, just turned up etc...... Which ones did you 'earn'?

I've never claimed to be any sort of super soldier have I, you were the one bleating about your mighty six..... Point out to me where I gave it large?

You hate bullies who give it large? Why do you think you had two user names banned you bag of cum?

I imagine you do have older shoes that 9 years, thats because you are poor and badly dressed

You got your LS&GC as well as your jubillee?

You're a clerk aren't you? a second rate secretary, I've got two of them, both on £11k a year...... its all they're worth, and they are better looking than you..... but then again, so is Nikki lauder
 
#20
I'm not.......... She is fixated with telling people she has six...... probably for eating penis in various theatres....

I tend not to argue at all with her, she's a parasite and a bit of an undergarment who has still to grasp that she's a turd
