The email below is currently doing the rounds but I felt it deserved a wider audience!
Not bad advice, disagree with the pocket in shirt bit though, nobody wears jackets in offices any more (hung up all day) and shirt pockets are handy for carrying spec's/'phone.
It's aimed at Army Officers who by and large don't wear suits to work in offices you utter mong
"Mr Utter-Mong" or "Sir" to you sonny!
Snobs have got it in for shirt pockets - Telegraph
Calm down young lady, you'll bust something. This bollox is in keeping with the spirit of your totally pointless post.
Wow, drop shorts are aiming up.
The only thing the author missed out are vents. In for a purpose, left off for a travesty.
The author of the email used to inspect YOs' suits with a set of tailor scissors and add vents if they were lacking.
Two vents or not two vents? that is the question....
...........or suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune ( shirt pocket)
Not just applicable to the Artillery I think!
I thought that the only requirement for RA YOs was that if two turned up in the same rig, the most junior went and got changed.
So you can turn up to an event dressed in Afrkia Korps rig and swastika armband then?
That email is fecking hilarious!! It reminds me of my time as a young Junior Bleeder when we had to parade in our civies for inspection to see if they were suitable before being allowed out in town for the first time out of uniform after Passing off the Square. We were then given a Civilian Clothes pass which had to be carried and the clothing worn had to match the clothes listed on the pass!!! Happy days circa 1966
Sounds like a right good bloke.
(Although I did crack a smile at the email - maybe the Corps Adjt of the RLC should push something similar out; expressing how "female equivilent" doesn't mean jeans-and-a-slutty-top...)
"I would rather discover a Gunner officer through his witty, polite and engaging conversation than clocking his cloning through his dress"
Perhaps this is the reason for the dress
That used to be the case. The gunner hierarchy have now decided that rigid adherence to dress standards is the way to go. Plastic belts, issued boots, twisties, belts over smocks.
