London Pride â Saturday 5th July 2008 Formal approval has been granted for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual personnel in HM Armed Forces to march in No.1 uniform (RN/RAF) No. 2 uniform (Army)through Central London on 5th July 2008, as part of the annual Gay Pride event. Whilst the Royal Navy has marched in uniform in previous years, Army and RAF personnel will also be marching in uniform for the first time this year. A large number of personnel have already committed to attend. Personnel will be considered to be on-duty for the uniformed element of the event, so internal UK duty travel costs (but not subsistence) may be claimed, subject to local Budget Manager discretion. Why? I dont give a sh*t if they attend but why in uniform and why on duty? Can I do this for my village fete? Ive grown some nice roses and want to promote my horticultural prowess whilst at the same time keeping the army in the public eye - can I get duty rates? or maybe for the Army Navy game?
