Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi,

    Anyone know what accoutrements are or are not allowed to be worn on REME soldiers No. 1 dress? I have had a scan through JSP 336 but couldn't find much specifically on REME.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks
     
  2. Have a ganders in Corps Dress regs on DEME(A)s website, might have a steer in there.
     
  3. I'm pretty sure feather boa's are a big no no, hope this is of some help to you.
     
  4. ring les in the kit agency
     
  5. Anyone got Les's number in the kit agency?
     
  6. check your PM's or look in the Corps comic
     
  7. I wore no 1s at my last place, spent many hours seaching publications for the DS solution but got no-where. Corps Instructions had alot on Offrs but not ORs. I ended up asking the corps ASM at the time what the score was.
    You can wear a plastic white belt with the REME buckle (£20 ish for the Corps shop) or a plastic belt with brass buckles (from 37 pattern belt). if you can ponce once you can wear a buff belt with the "Dieu et mon Droit" brass clasp.
    If you're a tiffy or JNCO you can wear a No1 pattern hammer & tongs, just scoc hammer pincer badge and it will come up.
    SNCOs can carry swagger sticks/ drill canes. REME sticks are finished in rose wood. Pace stick if you are a drill instructor or hard core walt.
    Not sure about red sashes, only seen them on SSgt RDs & CSMs. Certainly not below Sgt.
    Drill boots for effect but chelsea / george boots for comfort. I wore issued shoes (waxed and bobbed of course) when in the mess.
    But if you are wearing them to get married wear what ever you want, aiguillettes look camp but the best one to wear is the Household Cav LCpl one. But a feather boa would look better.
     
  8. Wear whatever the fcuk you want if your getting married, who's gonna tell you you can't?
    Walt it up big time, it's your wedding.
     
  9. well i had my heart set on a feather boa, but i suppose i should bow to conformity on this one!

    thanks for all your help!
