Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Planning ahead for november, is there any particular etiquette to this? Or can I just whack it on suit jacket?
     
  2. I would wear minatures on a suit and full size on a coat.

  6. Great idea S_M. The site is good but it could be a Walt's paradise - an MBE for £12 - who could resist!

    Yep. Put them on your jacket and possibly top them off with a beret then all you hbe to do is watch out for the waltencommando.

  10. Agreed, what was he thinking wearing that tie?
     
  11. How about medal ribbons?
     
  12. Only problem with wearing full size medals on a suit jacket is the weight of the medals (unless youve only got a couple) can pull the left hand side of your jacket down a bit and makes you look like a sack of shite.

  13. Pocket holder all well and good - unless you have your pockets stitched closed to keep them smart.
