Ok maybe a strange question - which came about from a post on the wearing of no 2's having left the service. Basically, I agree that under no circumstance should military uniform be worn if not serving - even weddings etc. Though I did hear of a sad exception where an ex-serving soldier, was allowed permission to attended the military funeral of a close friend who was KIA, in his blues. I posted a reply - see link ARRSE Question is related to last paragraph of that reply. Does any Army Officer, in any capacity other that TA or an RO posting, still use insignia such as the 'R' to indicate retired status? Have not seen such use in in ACF or friends who are STAB, but I do know of retired officers, going to CCF and ACF units in later years, or some have re-inlisted. For example, a Snr. Nurse who retired from QARANC a Major, due family. Then three years later went back to STAB but was allocated rank of Captain.
