To be honest I’m surprised it’s taken this long, I mean what statement more than a beard says, “Hey guys, I’m in the RAF, I’ve got a very tidy beard and I’m ghayer than Liberace’s poodle”.
 
RAF to allow beards to increase "inclusivity" and bring them in to line with the RN

Do I detect a whiff of sulphur?

Canucks introduced this for all 3 services last year.
 
As the antecedents of the RAF are as much Naval Service as Army (in fact in terms of mission roles the RAF owes much more to the RNAS than the numerically larger RFC), I guess it can be justified on historical precedence. Nah, this is all about trying to recruit f'ing mincing metrosexual millennials.

Man buns are a sign of gayness, which is intrinsically disordered according to Church teaching. People might think they're fashionable, but the wearer won't look so good when they're roasting and wailing for salvation in the fires of Hell.

Man buns are also worn by twats.
 
How does this fit in with respirators, in their army ? ( Bad Pun)
It doesn't, but it seems inclusivity and recruitment appeal trumps the fact you're gonna die on an NBC battlefield (like we haven't fought on at any scale for a century).

In simple terms closing recruit offices manned by military personnel and handing it over to Capita has resulted in a massive fall in recruitment and these changes in standards. The MoD refuses to sack them and go back to the recruitment methods that worked.

MoD can't sack Capita, and recruitment wasn't working before we employed them, numbers were masked by 2 wars.

Overseas expeditionary adventures: we don't go to 'war' anymore. The legal fees are extortionate!

We had a recruitment problem before Capita took over.

Or someone has decided to get rid of a pointless rule.
 
I remember a note on part one orders that said no number 1 haircuts because it looks too aggressive.

I had just got there from months of depot training where they said we want more aggression while making us do lots of aggressive things.

Confusing.
