Military Uniform

#1
This is just a quick clarification really. I'm wondering about the formal gear. Im wanting to confirm whether or not you get to wear the formal gear as a TA soldier. Im getting married this/next year and if possible would want to wear it.
My guess is, you get to wear it as TA but you will have to supply it yourself? can someone throw me a bone.
Thanks in advance

Ask permission from your commanding officer (proper formal JSP101 letter with two gaps after the full stops, your obedient servant etc) and then get the QM's to get you a set of No 1's for the occasion - give it a good few months as they will be drawing from central stores. Also make sure your wedding isn't the same week as a member of the Royal Family dies as your No 1's will suddenly not appear. That said unless you've got some tour medals and/or a MC, or all your mates you invite to your wedding are in the Military as well I don't really see the point.

Oh and don't forget to Promote yourself one Stripe/Pip up. Rumint says that you're allowed to do that.

Sorry, I meant the proper suits soldiers get for the formal do's. With the black hat etc...
If the TA aren't supposed to wear these, i don't want to do something that's frowned upon

Proper suits?

I've heard some pretty bone reasons for joining the TA, but you're just taking the piss. Go to Moss Bros like everyone else, you chav.

Failing that, I'm sure your local fancy dress shop could deck you out as the Crown Prince of Forin.

I'd follow the advice to not bother. But if you must, at least wait to find out if you pass basic.

So you just got sworn into the stabs and the thing you are most concerned about is getting married in "formal gear" aka "proper suits"....you don't even know what you are talking about.

Have a word with yourself, sort your priorities out (if you want to be a stab to do a job or just to self aggrandise) and get married in a civvie suit....you ****.

Don't do it, MrBee wore a nice suit as he wanted to look like a groom not on parade, also being comissioned he didnt fancy being saluted all day. The only men who wore No1 to our wedding were 2 RAF guys from the same regiment as they had left getting formal attire too late and just came back from deployment and asked if they could come in No1. I didn't want everyone in their No1's as to be honest the amount that were there from all different regiments, Navy RAF and Army it would have looked like a fancy dress party in th epictures. everyone looked lovely in hire suits and it gave unity to the wedding party. Get a nice wedding suit and a pink cravat to match the wedding scheme.
