Royal signals Stable belts

I had a SSM in 22 Sigs who had two covers for his pace stick. One was in the corps colors for marching about camp , the other was cammo for exercises.

Must have been a game changer as he retired as a Lt Col.

I loved my Corps stable belt, especially the adjustable feature in my latter years of service! :smile:

It was worn on completion of trade training (early 2000 for me), when you could finally ditch the honking coloured tabs. I remember it actually feeling like an achievement to finally start wearing it (for about 5 minutes).

As has been said, depends entirely on the unit CO/RSM.

I served at units where it was worn, and units where it was the green thing / 58 Pattern if you were a SNCO. And don't get started on sleeves up/down - un-tucked/tucked in malarkey, that's an entirely different can of worms!

I will say though, I was at one particular Regiment where un-tucked was in fashion, and one of the SSMs loved nothing more than gripping the lads for not having their stable belt on underneath their un-tucked shirt. Yes he was a bit of a knob!

Wait and see!

This SSM then - he was quite literally a shirt-lifter? :)
