MTP creases

#1
Been out of the army for a while going back in very shortly. Just wandering where the creases are suppose to be on MTP? Cheers

Although it does seem dependent upon unit policy, I've never put creases in MTP. It has always been pressed flat. The placement of the pockets on both the jacket arms and trouser legs do not lend themselves to allowing a decent crease be put through the kit.

Hope that helps - but you will be told what you're expected to do, as I'm sure you're aware.

Thank you for that :) yeah I'm well aware as of what is expected to be done. Cheers again

I didn't think "unit policy" came into it... Its been in Soldier and elsewhere that the whole beastly outfit is to be ironed flat.

Me too... When you can show something written by DES Com Cloth DSDA SPCT SO1 then you know you've got the Razzer over a barrel...

Agreed, however I have seen plenty of personnel from other units with creases in either trousers or jackets, or both, in line with local direction.
I find that as a lowly Cpl challenging any superior (regardless of the legitimacy of the challenge!) never ends well!

It's disgraceful that a uniform to be worn on operations was designed without the ability to be ironed with razor sharp creases - the uniform is clearly not fit for purpose.
