First of all, lol at the name.
But more importantly, what's going on with the hat? I'm new to all of this jazz, if he's in the rifles wheres he rifles beret? What the hell is that thing?

Damnit, i'm about to look like a mong here.
But no I'm not joking. What the hell am I looking at?

Its a RIFLES side hat. All Officers and WO are encouraged to wear them as barracks dress rather than the beret. It most certainly looks bad when worn with CS95 and don't even get me started if its worn with a smock...

cheers all, that pdf's pretty cool. Loving their great coat.
It's a particularly exhaustive document.

However it is a bit of a shame that, after a mere 17 years since the rank became defunct in the Regular Army, they don't know that Bandsmen are now referred to as Musicians.

Small point but it does annoy me!

Maybe they're making the command decision that 'Musician' sounds shite and unmilitary.

Maybe people far higher up have decided (17 fecking years ago) that Musician is a far better decription for someone, male or female, who is a professional musician and a member of the Corps of Army Music?

Maybe, also, you should crawl back under your rock?
