Mess dress question

Ive just gotten my commision (TA) and transfered to the RE. I want to buy some mess dress (via ebay as I dont have a spare £650 lying about!!!). What I want to know is there any difference between the NCO and Officers? Can I just buy the NCOs and take off the stripes? Id ask at the unit but Id rather not have the rolling eyes and Subbie comments! :oops: :)

Any info would be great cheers


Yes there is a BIG difference. So don't just cut the stripes off a SNCO jacket - the trousers are different too!!

Try the thrift shop at RSME (run by the QMs) you could pick something up there.
