No. Thanks. Unless you are pretty enough to be at least 8/10 in stockings and suspenders. Then we can just throw you to the RM.

This is a perfect example of how out of touch the Army really is - I think men stopped wearing ear rings when the eighties finished... :?

I've a question - should the Army try to actively recruit more Punk Rockers?

:D :D

Given that female officers are allowed to wear ear studs, is it time that those "rights" were provided for male officers too?
It was quite common when I was serving

When and where was it ever enshrined that someone had a 'right' to wear an ear-ring? Fed-up hearing about people's 'rights'; what about the obligations and duties of an officer not to look like a chav on parade - what's next, regimental bling?

Horrific as earring-wearing is as a pathetic sign of rebellion, it is now done because it looks 'good' [shudders]. As one of the skills of being an officer is good judgement, surely this should never come up as an issue? I remember on my first day in the OTC when the RSM spoke to everyone in the mess about standards. To quote [through the mists of time] 'you aren't allowed to wear jewellry because of health and safety, not because it looks gay'. His tone left the assembled undergrads in no uncertain terms that the main health and saftey issue linked to jewellry would be the tear marks when the RSM ripped it off. Happy, happy, memories.

Oh come on man, its the 21st Century! I think there is scope to have officers dress down a little. I am thinking Burbury Fleeces, Purple crimpoline pimp suits and those two tone shoes from the 80's mod revival! Lets face it when you guys are off duty, you wear the most bizarre clothing known outside of Mongolia! Those fecking red mole skin trousers, Barbour jackets, bright green Wellingtons and deerstalker hats just don't cut it any more dude! :D Take a trip down to M&S and treat yourselves. You deserve it after all those years in the fashion wilderness.

Absolutely. You never know until you try you might actually like it. Its a bit like hair really women can tie there's back into buns where men have to have it short or they get an "Oi Get yer hair cut"
