    If issued, wear it, if not, then don't?

  5. Belt goes on the outside, except when working, then scrim may be rolled up, except on Sundays, unless on duty or until ordered.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm pretty sure that you will be quite safe using a non issued helmet cover if you feel the need to.

  9. DS answer is no,

    use only military kit, dont even use permy marker on the helmet, follow the washing instructions to the letter, because the MoD lawyers will use anything against you if the integrity of the helmet is compromised or thought to be compromised.

    Had this argument at Chilwell, and the RQ there brought it up. Not as a bollocking but as an instruction not to screw yourself over.

    At least this "dull ****" can still find regulations and the search function!

    In meantime can I introduce you to the ignore feature?
