My Friend a Walt or Not

#1
Views and opinions please I know what I think!! I have been out a while so rarely wear anything military except sometimes a small badge on my collar or a Rugby shirt with Reg badge during the Rememberance period . However I have a friend in his mid sixties who will insist on wearing rugby shirts, of which he has many, with various Regimental badges on. Notably Scots Guards, 9/12 Lancers, Gurka Rifles to name a few. He says he just likes the badges. I say why would you want to wear the badge of a regiment you have never served in especially as you have never been in the forces at all. He does'nt seem to think it matters!!! Should I buy him a Rugby shirt with a SAS badge on? cos thats quite pretty. Anyway not quite on the scale of wearing medals he is not entitled to, but what ever badge you wear or wore I think we are, were, proud enough not to want someone like him to display it on his chest.LOL :?

jeeze, what's the big deal. The chaps 65 FFS and wearing a rugby shirt, it's not like he's walting around with a para smock, brown beret, puttees and hob-nailed boots is it.

I bought a NASA T-Shirt at Cape Kennedy last September does that make me be a wannabe spaceman or just someone who is interested in NASA ?

I also bought a NASCAR T-Shirt at Michigan Speedway last July does that make me be a wannabe race car driver or just someone who is interested in NASCAR ?

OK I judge from this feedback that not many of you care if a complete civvy who has never been anywhere near serving his country wears the badge of a regiment of the British army fair enough. As for the rugby shirt bit I could have said polo shirt I never mentioned Football or football shirts. Personaly if you want to go to a match with a team shirt on fine personaly I saw nought wrong with the old scarf myself. If you want to spend your hard earned cash buying a crap shirt so the likes of W Rooney can live the life of Riley so be it. Any Paras out there bet you would wonder why someone who was not Para would wear your famous and hard earned insignia!!!!!!!!!

Older Lad round the corner from me wears a bootie t shirt once in a blue moon...never been one but one of the lads at Neptune gave him it because he was a sort of civi storeman over there...never claims to have been one but always talks about how much respect he has for them....donr see any harm in that

He's not bigging it up so what's the problem? He's an old fella with an interest in the forces. How many blokes out there are wearing rugby shirts with regimental insignias because there son/daughter/cousin/mate has bought them one?
