Mine doesn't.........
No1 Dress jkt should be
• Dark blue barathea patrol jacket with 5 RLC buttons, stand collar, 2 breast pockets and 2 hip pockets
• Enamelled RLC officers’ collar badges with cannon muzzles pointing inward
• No whistle lanyard
• No piping anywhere on jacket
White linen strip patrol collar secured to the jacket collar showing not more than 1/8 inch above the jacket collar.

Try a RLC unit that does ceremonial duties or the band

There's a beardy Pioneer on the front cover of the latest edition of 'Sustainer'.

Might be worth a perusal re markings and stripes.


Glover and Riding's in ALdershot do No1s hire, fully tailored with all correct markings etc. £60 for a long weekend plus deposit (or it was when I got wed in 1997).

Cheaper options do exist... It's all about contacts...

As suggested above, try a local RA or RE establishment and see what you can muster.

To be honest, if you're the only person at the event in rig no-one will notice the odd bit of piping that's incorrect. :wink:

Try 20 Sqn Rlc at Regents Park.
Their QM's hold all home service ceremonial uniform.
Pm me. I will give you the contact

I hired a set recently from a REME tailor near Aldershot. He was excellent, number is 01189 763452. He's doing a set for one of our guys who's getting married in Mexico, He's charging 1 weeks hire, but the bloke gets it for 3 weeks.

He can do Trousers (if reqd), Jacket, belt, gloves and hat.

Hope that's helpful?

Remember the saying "out in war, inwards during peace" was that bullshit?
