I need help, After 7 years in the TA I have went down the officer route and I am currently an Officer Cadet waiting to go on TACC in May, currently poncing around with my little white tape on. My problem is this, there is a regimental dinner coming up soon and I have been told by one group of guys in the unit to wear a dinner jacket etc, however within this groups of "friends" we are always keen to pull pranks on each other and I think they are trying to make me look like a cnut. On the other side is another group of friends who have told me to wear my mess dress with the old white tapes showing, yet again, however these blokes would also like to see me look like a cnut. Does anyone know what would be correct? please help or I might be killed by the CO when I turn up in jeans and my spare norgy shirt. Also my apologies if I have put this in the wrong area, I figured it was a kit type topic.
