New British Army Uniforms First Day cover

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Pitster, Aug 6, 2007.

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. I have the latest Royal Mail pam here, and the latest first Day Cover is uniforms through the ages. Looks good, and I will no doubt invest - but why have they chosen the Corps they have, I wonder?

    RMP uniforms, and some Cap Badges, including the WRAC... Nothing against any of them, but curious.

    Also, the pam states that Army personnel have a choice of seven uniforms, but do we all concur?
  2. After 22 years' service I have many more than seven different uniform types to pick from... DMS, Puttees and KF shirt, along with OG trousers and skeleton order 58 webbing anyone? All topped off with a 44 pattern helmet, of course... And right up to date with a stunning selection of Service Dress, Combat 95, Deserts, and the old fave - V necked PT shirt and nut cracker PT shorts!
