So there I was this evening in a Chinese takeaway at approximately 1920hrs waiting to collect my order. This is located approx 30 metres from the local ACF on a busy road in the centre of town. In strolls a figure in an untucked CS95 shirt and trousers. No stable belt or green belt, no headdress, and muddy boots (not from today either). His combats although clean were unironed. He had a red slide on his front epaulette stating "PI". I assume he was an Adult instructor or probationer? I took a second look at this guy, and make a quip at him that in my day he would have had a bollocking for poor turnout. I went on to say that as he was wearing the uniform, he should represent it with pride and not the shambles he portrayed. He didnt comment. He looked very embarassed. When I left the takeaway there was a young lad in his teens waiting to be let into the centre and he was immaculately dressed. What a difference. Can someone tell me - Is this the example that Adults in the ACF are setting to the youngsters these days or was I just unlucky into bumping into a poor example? What must civvys think when they see him? I am fcuking outraged that he wears the uniform of the British Army and waltzed around like that in such a poor show of discipline and turnout. If anyone knows this character get a grip of him. This isnt a dig at Adult Instructors, most I have seen (he's the only example in Herts I have seen) wear the uniform with pride. I will be phoning the centre tomorrow to speak to the OC who I understand will be in the office tomorrow to make a complaint. Had to get that off my chest, and like I say not a dig at the rest of the ACF i have seen. I just hope that he is an enigma within Herts ACF.
