Working in a city centre I see a few blokes & lasses in combats going about their business. Yesterday I was left feeling bloody angry seeing a tubby Sgt in 95's looking like a sack of shite tied in the middle. Walking alongside his lady he was wearing what appeared to be an oversized jacket & a pair of combats supposedly bloused into his boots. But they were hanging so low over them you couldn't tell. They looked like they were being worn without twisties & just left to hang without being dressed around & over the boot properly. On top of that he was bear headed with his lid tooked into his jacket pocket. That really pissed me off. I thought headgear had to be worn at all times in public. The only insignia he was wearing were his stripes on his chest. He looked shocking & I was annoyed at someone wearing the uniform I used to take pride in & walking around in public. What are the current standards as regards uniforms in public? I may have started my time wearing puttees way back when but I still have enough marbles to recognise someone in rag order. Whenever we wear allowed to wear uniform in public we were the height of spick & span. Personal pride dictated so, as well as the possibility of a belt round the noggin from an NCO. I remember spending about 30mins sprucing myself up in the bus station toilets on my way home on first leave way back when so i could peacock my past my old mates & girlfriends. We took pride in looking the dogs. It really annoyed me seeing this fella looking like & repesenting my Army. Should I give a shit though?
