Suit, headress and medals.

Suit, Regimental tie, medals optional - definitely not head dress if still serving.

No medals. If you are still serving and want to wear medals you should wear uniform. There is no order of dress for wearing medals with civilian clothes.

I would say uniform,I was at the Cenotaph in 2001 and wore a blazer as we were told squads of mixed uniform/blazer not allowed. That is all I saw! Hip flask a definate!!!

I'd go uniform if you can - Shows a good mix of old and new and the pride that serving soldiers take in those that served before them.

Many moons ago I was asked by the local Burma Star Association to join their contingent in No. 2s at the Cenotaph.

A very humbling experience but great honour considering what those guys had endured.

Wrong.







...... I'm sure there is no reason not to wear medals in civilian attire?

That'll be several hundred of us incorrectly dressed on Cavalry Sunday, then. Shall I tell the Combined Cavalry OCA or do you want to?
