I have noticed an increased number of coppers wearing medal ribbons on their body armour. Stuck me as a very odd thing to do. I saw a chap yesterday during the Olympic Torch Parade with a Golden and Diamond Jubilee as well as a Police Long Service, pinned to his armour, about level with his elbow due to equipment tacked onto him like a badly made fuzzy felt character. It's not just up here either, one of the plod on Traffic Cops last night also had. Surely its a bit like wearing ribbons on a coverall, or indeed Osprey etc...the body armour being a piece of PPE. Next they will be wearing high leg boots, and wearing H4H wristbands...... Is this a personnal thing or is it part of dress regs?
