Royal Marines Gucci Rebrand

Did anyone ever 'wear' a poncho?
I saw a bloke wearing one on exercise in 2004.

Admittedly, the 'Exercise' was in Alpendorf, Austria, and we were all learning to ski.

And he was wearing a foam Bishop's Mitre.

And the poncho had 'Cardinal Chunder' daubed on it in white paint, due to him being the current holder of the title.

But that counts, right?

Yes. Once. When a Woofer Colour decided it would be a brill idea to make the cadets all wear 'em on stag on a week long exercise in shit weather. We had a work experience group along and they didn't have Goretex, waterproofs or Bashas... so we didn't either. :roll:
So will they be shirts tucked in or out ?
