New No. 2 dress.......... is there any truth?

#1
when I finished basic I had to hand in the No. 2's that were issued there was no reason given for this so I didn't think anything about it but now I have heard it's because there is going to be a new design being brought in.

So is there any truth behind this or is it just one of the many ideas flying around with no truth behind it.

Makes sense, doesn't it. Replace the number 2 uniforms, right in the middle of an economic crisis, when funding for urgently required equipment in theatre is at its hardest to obtain.

Don't you just love the Government...?

I don't think it was a question raised in parliament :roll:

More than likely a decision made a few year ago by those that cloth us.

5A is not the type of follower you want. You need to take measures to protect yourself.

A gimp mask and KY should ease the pain.

Ah, but the old No2 Dress was a symbol of the Forces of Conservatism.

You will be presented with the improved People's FAD, also available in maternity, shalwar kameez, niqab and hijab versions!

Is that why there is now no definition between officers and WO dress? F* it, rank is an outdaded principle aint it guys? When do we get to elect our officers then?


Is it true all crowns on uniform are being replaced with the labour torch logo?

Probably not. I bet the No2 burqua will be issued first, along with the other ethnic minority garb. Government must be PC, useless, but PC

got mine the other day!!! Shirts helpfully come with just the collar size as a variable. So you may end up with the correct collar size but a tent for a shirt!!! As has happened to a good few of the other guys at my place!!!

Of course they gotta have No2s, just seen proof of it on BBC TV every day for the past fortnight - what will the lads on Court duty in SW19 wear if they ain't got 2's?

Is it going to change from what is issued now? Of course some senior person in the chain of command (outside the military if you need a better pointer) will be getting a payment from a uniform manufacturer to say so.
