saluting question

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. In a church,caps off, National Anthem played does the senior officer present replace cap and salute?
     
  2. i would have thought that the national anthem would override the ol' caps off indoors rule, especially if one was saluting the crown. Hmm, interesting query though...

    Not normally. The only time men wear head dress in a church is when carrying colours, and then it is removed when the colours are installed on the sanctuary. Correct form would be to stand to attention.
     
  4. My understanding is standing to attention is the norm.

    Attention is sufficient if memory serves me correct.
     
  7. attention and that includes females wearing head-dress.
     
  8. Foxy you are such a spotter!!
     
  9. Thanks chaps you have just won me a bottle of Mr Warres finest. I will salute each one of you a glass each. In your absence of course :D
     
  10. I know :oops:
     
  11. Agreed
     
  12. Agreed
     
  13. There may be a salve for that
     
  14. but not, of course if you are in church, because you won't have your hat on (sorry-I'll get my coat)
     
  15. on that point, does the Army regard female officers and soldiers as ladies (hence keeping headress on) rather than officers soldiers, as they keep hat on?
