I am entering a service riding competition for which the dress is SD/No2 dress with appropriate service pattern riding breeches.

I have asked the stores they can get me 'service pattern riding breeches' and they have come back and asked what colour?

Does anyone know what the issue riding breeches (or appropriate service pattern) are for SD/No2 Dress?

I believe they are pink with a herringbone pattern.
Very stylish I'm sure but a tad walty (not to mention incorrectly dressed) if you're not a cherry picker and I'm not.

Tartan breeches would also suit my private tastes and nationality but not dress regulations.

Whose gang are you in?

Ok. I have a supplier who makes my breeches for me and have a swatch book of all the different regimental colours for riding breeches. TBH I don't recall seeing one specifically for the RAMC but I will check when I get back to work on Tuesday for you. When do you need them for?

RAF (Tri-service) Championship at end Sept.

For budgetary reasons I'd rather get them issued if that's possible although I'm not completely against paying for them.

There's a company called 'Replicators' in India who make uniforms re-enactors who will make SD riding breeches for £57.00 which sounds like good value. I've seen some other stuff they make (WW1 & WW2 kit) and it's very good - couldn't tell it from the originals.
