    Can anyone advise on the correct order of dress for "1B". A friend is to attend a military funeral with the dress code stated as "1B", and wants to make sure he gets it right.

    Any genuine advice welcome, as mess tin and swarfega order will not be the done thing at a funeral.


  2. Try the Adjt, RSM or Chief Clerk of your unit or the organising unit. You will not be the only person who doesn't know what this means.

    Thanks F_C.

    I will try there as well, but the chances of it being any clearer are doubtfull!

  4. How close a friend?

    Duke, you need picking up and throwing in a pond full of small kaman for missing out on an opportunity of a wind up.

    Send him cammed up, helmet on but with sawn off combats and high heeled flippers.

    Tell him 1B also means he should be half cut when he lands and take a hip flask full of poppers and bum lube for the widow

    The mental image of an airborne dwarf in your version of fighting order is now going to scar me for life. As for half cut, if he manages that level of self restraint it would be a miracle. He is almost certain to be totally shitters and windmilling by halfway through the eulogy.

    The box contents are female, so drug assistance will not be required there, but the other half may be grateful for the poppers and lube!
  9. Tell him you checked and it's a typo - should have read '4-Romeo'

  10. Probably and if you are a junior rank you can promote yourself when in 1C.
