Went to a RBL Concert last sunday, saw a ACF Officer wearing the following:

No Number 2's
AGC Jumper
Para Wings
Commando Dagger
Primark Trousers
Millets Shoes
Black Beret with Para Cap Badge

During the service, did not react for 12 seconds when the National Anthem was played, stood at ease through the last post.

Culmination of the day was when I caught him chatting up a 15yr old female, (good looking too.....blast) and fag in mouth at the end of the service.

Outrageous........

Is there any better than this?

PS. Was also wearing the GS Cross (What is that anyhow?)

I'm confused - AGC Jumper??? What, a sweat-shirt ???

He is obviously an ueber walt with mad aspirations, Para clerk officer attached to the royal tank regiment..... oh, and commisioned from the royal marines!

Hells bells....

There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's MASTERCARD.

And/or eBay.

I loved Spike Milligan's description of a wartime FOO as, "the only Subaltern in the British Army ever to be arrested for impersonating an officer". Somehow that sprang to mind...

Wouldn't have happened in SE Kent perchance??

The gs cross is one of those commerative medal they used to sell in the
back of soldier magazine.Worn by walts and soldiers wearing blues/no2 at weddings.
The acf officer does pose an intresting etiquette question though.If a para
&marine of equal rank chanced upon the thing who gets to grip him first?
Even if he had passed both courses (stranger things have happened)he sounds like he had let the side down badly.

Why does it seem that so many British dress up as soldiers when they are not entitled to ? Especially when many public don't hold such a high regard (or are neutral) to the military. Maybe it is with the forced conscription here that many don't feel the need to dress up.. plus it can be a negative to many young women (another fumbling conscript who won't be there for a while !)
 
#14
Dress uniform looks good if properly fitted.And without conscription away from garrison town most civilians have an ignorance about the army and all
things military.So if you want to add a sense of glamour to your mundane
life invent a military career.

Ah, is it a bit like why (from reports) many English girls are mad over firemen and suchlike ? Man in uniform syndrome (a bit like some and schoolgirl clothing?)

Mr finishtalkingoutofmyarrse - what the hell are you waffling about?

What makes you think the public don't hold such high regard to the military. The vast majority of British are 100% behind the military - maybe not the politicians - but definitely the military.

Get back to yer wacky backy, a Cadet officer is being discussed here which probably equates to Finnish SF.

Whistler: The general IMPRESSION given, both in the media and often on this very site, is that the AVERAGE BRITISH CITIZEN does not have high regard for the Army or the Police and other such public servants. Of course the tabloid newspapers rally around "our troops" when it suits their agenda and then come down like a ton of bricks when it suits them.

Did you miss, or were unable to understand, the word neutral?

Did you miss, or were unable to comprehend, the other parts of my message which were question(s).?

many years ago, 1977 in fact I was a punk.
One day me and these others were in a second hand clothes store finding clothes to wear to a Clash concert we were going to that night .

The girls I was with thought I looked just great in this red beret we found in the shop and wanted me to wear it.
But I had to say no. I knew that red colour only too well.
They kept begging me to wear it, but eventually I put my foot down,
'I never did P company so I'm not entitled to wear it,' I said.
Of course they hadn't a clue what I was on about, bless em.

But I still got to shag them after the gig anyway.

Endex, you should have outed the walt there and then. Commando dagger? Tufty club medal? How did you know the girl was 15?

I'm with 'finnish arrse' Whistler. We have neither the profile nor the public support we enjoyed twenty five years ago and there are too many incidents of the press and public putting the boot in. See 'Sainsbury's' thread or 'Royal Marines 'loafing' in Afghanistan' thread for starters. ACF or Army - most of the public won't know the difference.

Out the walt.
