Navy rank slides in MTP

Discussion in 'Military Clothing & Boots' started by northern-matelot, Nov 25, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anybody know if there are RN versions or are we to wear the OG ones currently used for CS95's?
  2. The only official rank slide is the standard MTP (they have made stinky CRABB slides), I would have thought they will make basic slides without Royal Navy on them.

    In unit, you are allowed to wear locally produced slides in OG only, once out of barracks, MTP is the only authorised.

    Yep, when you pick your kit up from stores they will offer you the rank slides. If not go along to the Specialist Clothing Store at your Naval Base or Air Station and ask for some (there're free)
  6. I am stores, had a lad come in earlier today with some PCS kit to sew badges on and was asking for some slides. We dont have any MTP / PCS in the stores here as they are issued directly to ships on certain taskings and to places running courses like OPTAG / Boarding course
  7. Some sailors here in Pompey are wearing either Royal Navy mudguards or name tapes with Royal Navy in lieu of rank slides. However them tucking there PCS in looks gash.

    The slides are given to you when you draw kit from Nelson clothing store on issue of the MTP kit for deployment. Give them a shout
  9. Cheers Guns- will call em monday
  10. We're trailing a new version of our working uniform based on PCS (imaginatively called RNPCS) and looks like were in and up going of the official photos

  11. Good god it looks like something german panzer crews wear! Whats wrong with 4's? (8's for you old codgers out there)
  12. Guess its like the yanks- 1 uniform for all services just different colours saving money

    I am here:,-4.185893
  13. If anyone needs an example of someone looking like a sack of shit that is the perfect image!

    I just hope Royalgreenjacket doesn't see it or he'll have a heart attack with the up and in.
  14. Why is it so shiny? Is that the flame resistant coating again? The one that comes off after about 5 washes (just about when 4's begin to be bearable to wear)
  15. Probably, the one that gives you a massive rash all over!
