Ear Duffs

#1
Hey guys, Im new to this forum, Im not ex army however my dad was. I'm ex navy and now work as a civvi gpmg instructor in the naval base in pompey. So anyways, the guys in my office are due to do a gun salute in london and are required to wear the best dress. We understand the Kings horse Artillery who also do the gun salutes (hyde park) also do this in their best dress. All we would like to know is what ear duffs if any do they wear as you cant see them in photos. If they do wear any what is the NSN number? I have been acting secretary for the last few weeks and have been calling their offices, numbers found on the intranet address book and no one is answering....ever....Your help would be greatly apprieciated.Mrs H

But don't phone them. They never pick up.

You're asking the wrong mob; you need to contact an Ear Defence Regiment.
I saw what you did there...

Having worked quite closely with the minge troop on a number of ceremonial occasions, I can't say I've ever seen them wear ear defence, and the horses certainly don't. Although the musician types now have to wear ear plugs of some description.

There are a wide choice of in-the-ear styles available. They do not ahve to be the yellow ones and I am sure you can find someonline that are far more discreet.

My firm supplies us with EMTEC moulded plugs, which come in a range of colours. As a bonus, you can have them fitted with Sennheiser earphones for that genuine 'bobbing about in a RIB listening to my iPod' feeling.

Obviously some translation issues here.

Try RR where your banter might be understood and you'll be some kind of Godess. At least in your own mind.

So when the Donkey Wallopers rock up with their horsey drawn guns and spendid uniforms... a bunch of iPod wearing matelots are going to turn up in a minibus, throw out a GPMG and rattle off a belt or two?

Is this what our Royal Navy is reduced to?
