RA Dress Regs

#1
Does anyone have any info on RA dress regs for WO2/WO1 in particular around sword belts and accroutements?
The internet doesn't seem to have a copy of JSP 336 Vol12 anymore and this has been superseded by JSP 886 which refers to the Service Dress and Clothing Committee for the dress regs which I also can't find!

I'm an ACF instructor (SMI) that doesn't want to offend anyone by making sure I'm in the correct dress on those occasions where I am in No.2's.

Many thanks

Ok, haven't got regs in front off me and I'm doing this by memory so might be wrong


WO2 wears ORs no2 dress or FAD, no 1dress forage Cap, brown shoes, brown gloves, no belt, no lanyard, officers shirt and tie, cane if appointment demands

WO1 wears SD or FAD, officers cap, Sam Browne belt, sword, no lanyard, brown shoes, brown gloves, officers shirt and tie, pace stick if appointment demands.

Yes that'd right, sword AND stick

And yes WO1 wears a Sam Browne


As stated, that's what I think, someone please confirm

I can confirm that WH.... although is there not a move to make everyone wear FAD shirts (silk tie will stay though)?

Which is why you posted the question in the first place I'm assuming.

Why post a question on a subject that you readily admit you know nothing about... then question the answer....... T_T !!
The reason for the initial question was because I had been informed (rightly or wrongly) that no WO in the RA wore Sam Brownes, it was only sword belts. I think I would rather be a T_T that is correctly dressed than someone who offends by being incorrectly dressed.

Apart from that I thank you all for your replies.
