Walking through london recently i saw something that made me laugh..

Imagine a teenager wearing white trainers, jeans, burberry cap and here it is....

a buffallo green jacket, nothing underneath, unzipped to the belly, off his left shoulder, showing a huge tattoo of a para capbadge above his left tit 12" across.

now, hats off to the lad for having done selection and wearing his badge with pride,

the thing that struck me was, he looked 16, chav hat wearing, bum fluff on his chin and a chavette on his right arm.

i cant imagine this youff as a paratrooper in the field army..

Do the ACF have a para regt?

also opsec would have said "dont go walking around major cities with military tattoos on display"?

Also it was quite chilly...

or am i being "old"?

There are ACF Dets with affiliations to 'the Reg' - I can think of around 10 or 12 in the Greater London and Home Counties area alone.

In this image conscious age, I can't believe that any member of that fine Regiment would deploy into a civvy-rich environment in such a ghastly manner.

Should have challenged the cnut, if he was serving you would have sussed him PDQ.

That said I was up in Scotland recently and was drinking in a pub with a load of booties and some of the kit they were wearing wasn't far off chav status........WTF is goinf on, DB's, Regt T-Shirt, jeans, green bomber jacket or jean jacket.........all you need.. :wink:

Well said Eggbanjo, desert wellies and jeans/teeshirt are the definative off duty military uniform for British service persons...

I still wear that now. its cheap, practical and comfortable and easy to identify oppos in a pub fight senario.

We had a sprog turn up at 7 Sigs in the early 90's with a winged dagger on his arm...we were so impressed that we invited him down to the Sqn bar and treated him to free beer all night...then when he slumped unconcious in his chair (after at least 4 pints...cos he was nails) we rolled him out of the window (ground floor unfortunately)placed him in the recovery position(of course). Now some people say that the guys that lagged out of the window that night were lagging on the sprog on purpose....I think they just couldn't be bothered to walk to the bogs...

I seem to remember us getting a b0lloking the next day and having to promise to use the urinals next time.
