RAF to wear uniform in MOD Main Building....

#1
on Wednesdays only.... and only if other factors do not 'militate' (sic) against it!

I wholly support the Study recommendation and concur the need to raise the public profile of Service personnel in general. I also believe firmly that Royal Air Force servicemen and women should avail ourselves of an opportunity to demonstrate our justifiable pride in our Service and, particularly, in our colleagues who are playing such a critical part, in many cases at considerable risk, in ongoing operations.

I have therefore directed that all Royal Air Force personnel serving in Main Building are to wear No 2 uniform at work every Wednesday.

I would also encourage the wearing of uniform travelling to and from work on Wednesdays, but I recognize there will be legitimate reasons that will occasionally militate against this.

Well hoorah for the RAF, why go the whole hog if you can do a half-arrsed job!!

Why can't you wear CS95???? why the big issue of wearing your blues!! it's a lot cheaper in the long run and will be instantly recogniseable as being in the military. Unless you are like the flyboys at my location who really dislike the military way of doing stuff!! Even the big wigs at flyboy space centre have ordered their minions NOT to wear CS95 as it makes them look "too military" ........what the F@*k!!! so how do you make a Fook off big tornado with hoofin great big bombs hanging off it look less military??? Paint it pink?? C'mon guy's, stop worrying about your image and get with the program!! Contary to some TV programs, a small bunch of RAF are actually chewing dirt and taking incoming alongside their green counter parts in AFG!! Not having a holiday!! sort of urinates on their efforts really does'nt it?? I ask you!!

What's your aversion to 'militate'?

As you are RAF Regt you'd probably just shoot yourself by accident :D

As for the uniform to be worn... CS95 in MB why? Barrack Dress would be sufficient.

Nice 2s trousers (you'd wear them each day so they WOULD fit and be comfy) shirt, tie and a nice pair of shoes... brown for OR9s and OFs and Black for ORs up to OR 8.

All wrapped up with a stable belt and hat (thunderbird stylee if that is your thing). Jumper in the winter and the addition of a jacket and all that gubbins if you want to wild.

The RAF have a similar uniform as do the RN. Even the RM have a similar uniform, which would allow all to look jolly spiffing and smart, but retain their brand identity...

rather than the daily dress abortion that is CS95. A combat uniform covered in badges, starched, tailored and with a jacket tucked in.

Perhaps they intend to harness the static electricity generated by the vast acreage of polyester, to power and light Main Building.

Well the growbags will be very handy for carrying oyster cards & so on because of all the pockets & of course will deal well with the grime of the city.

As for the non-aircrew they might do a good job of scaring off motorists who mistake them for parking enforcement officers ;)

Sadly, particularly given that this is a PR exercise, Joe Bloody Public cannot differentiate between stinking pongo and slick Brylcreem Boy when we all wear the same scruffy bloody cabbage-patch kit - hence the emphasis on wearing blues. :wink:

Will the poor dears get a clothing allowance for wearing uniform? :roll:

talking of Navy, I absolutely pissed myself laughing at a motorway service station when I saw a RN Officer get mistaken and berated for being in HM Customs and Excise!

We are so out of touch with Jo Public, that if they don't see C95 they don't understand you can still be in the forces..... Unless your medical staff at Selly Oak!
