Hello all, I have recently been commissioned into a TA inf Bn. I have a couple of questions that hopefully someone can answer as my unit are all on their summer leave. 1. I have just had to fork out for a service dress cap where do i get the leather band and buttons from? 2. Again ref SD, do i have to buy pips or does my unit issuse these? 3. Finally, I heard a rumor that there is a grant/alownce type thing that you get to cover the substanial cost of this and mess dress. Does anyone know if this is true and if so how do i go about applying for it?
