As a mark of respect to my Father, I intend wearing No.1 Dress of one of his old (now no longer existing!) regiments, either 3rd The Kings Own Hussars, or The Queens Own Hussars, when I get married next year.
Someone on another forum has said I will be breaking the law. Surely this cannot be the case?, as effectively I'll be wearing 'fancy dress', at a PRIVATE function, and will not be portraying a currently serving member or the British Armed Forces, (even though I happen to be one, -albeit in the form of an Army Cadet Force Instructor).
If it is illegal, then all these re-enactors, and guys who dress in period uniform when displaying privately owned historic military vehicles (-me with my Saracen, included!), are breaking the law.
Can someone put the record straight, please? if possible please quote regulations........

many thanks!

since when did being in the Army Cadet Force make you a serving member of the british armed forces?

You'd just look a ****. Can't you afford a decent suit?
? why the profanity? I most certainly would not bear any resemblance to the aforementioned slang termed part of the human anatomy!..... I've seen enough of them to know they are NOT made of dark blue material, with brass buttons on.... what planet are you from?

'Legal'? Do you fear having your moth-eaten, dandruff-flecked collar felt by the uniformed branch of the Waltenkommando? It hardly matters.

Obviously not the same one as you.

As Jarrod said, you'd look like a complete twat. Get yourself to Burtons.

In all seriousness, I put this thread up, because I want a constructive answer, please don't waste your time by posting useless, derogatory remarks.

Can you explain how it's a mark of respect to your father to wear his uniform. He earned it, you found it.

On the reenactment tack, are you reenacting your father's wedding? Did he wear blues? Will your missus be wearing your mum's old frock?

If you really must, can't you get hold of a set of ACF No.1s?

I think you might have your answer darling.

You'll look like a dick.

only invited guests know when and where I'm getting married anyway, so I doubt there'll be any Police presence there, anyway.

so what in ****'s name are you asking for?

again, why resort to profanity?........ unconstructive.
Let's play a game.

Let's play "Dress Up".

Let's play "Wearing something that makes you look stupid and you will be called a dick for".

OK, who's first?

Oily - put your hands down and stop shouting "me me" - we are not going to let you go like that. Now buy yourself a new suit and play nicely, or you won't get a jam sandwich. Oh, and wash your hands after you've done a wee.

How much more simpler can it get?

Oh, and as for profanity? I haven't even started yet.

Look, Brad's dad, if the police wanted to find you it'd be easy. They'd just ping 83 BA 76 on a green Saracen into the ANPR...

? How can that be? as you have no idea what I look like.........
A reference to the double 'anyway' in your post.

Listen to The Snail.

It's a bit daft and over extravegant. You would look perfectly nice in a suit. When it comes to the military, you DO have to earn your uniform, just because your dad had to wear it doesn't mean that you SHOULD wear it. It's like an entitlement thing and you haven't got that entitlement.

This doesn't mean you're a bad bloke, it just means that you should grow up and get a pleasant suit to wear.
