    I thought the ones through the system were the verboten inf pattern ones. I am still wearing an ancient one i picked up at YOs for a fiver.

    Absolutely right but be aware FAD may overtake events with Gunner officers being forced down the issue shirt line.

    BTW, there is a marvellous pub next door to Stephans - The Pickled Pelican...
  10. Surely, that would be the sign of a failing regiment.
  11. The RA might cave in but I will only accept it when I see the Rifles dress regs change...and good luck with that, FAD team!

    I really hate having to be the one to break it you boss, but the Rifles Dress Guide was updated (again!) last month, no doubt with FAD in mind. Lo and Behold:
    pdf available here: Dress & Uniform - British Army Website see page 29.

    I get the impression that FAD isn't as well recieved as most people might think- I agree with the sentiment- the new kit looks absolutely gash.
  14. Oh, Lordy!
    Thanks for the update RP.

    Edited to add: Having just taken a sobering trip through the PDF that RP indicated, I did notice that there is still one concession to the old way:
    "FAD: As per ECAB direction, regimental & corps shirts & ties may be worn in No 13/14 Barrack Dress."
    So no immediate need for Viking funerals just yet...
