Turn up with shirt pressed for long sleeves, ask question, roll up sleeves if required.

Do you need advice on how to breathe or wipe your arrse as well?

I'd go out now and get that shirt tailored so you have dead smart short sleeves for shirt sleeve order, whilst you are at it get the back tailored and some creases sewn into those trousers.

Initiative man !!

Better still, phone the RSM at home or in the Mess. That way you will be ahead of the game and will be the admiration of all your mates.
Phone? You loser, real pro-active thinking toms go and knock on his door, usually about 11pm the night before first parade. :D

Keep them rolled up all year long, if the razz man questions this, tell him his wife prefers you with your sleeves rolled up. If the razzers a bird (non teeth arms for you cadets reading) tell her to get back in the kitchen

If it's cold keep them down, if it's hot roll them up. Personal preference shows initiative and is the way forward.
On a side note, remember at 18.00hrs the Army tells mother nature it is now officially cold so you have to roll them down anyway..........

My unit wears them up all year round whatever the weather, which looks ten times better imho. Long sleeves in 95s looks like you're wearing some sort of crap dpm boiler suit.
