SIB IN uniform

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. Just been down to Capn Jaspers on the Barbican in Plymouth and saw what i believed to be a member of my old Corps in uniform..............
    ]
    Well to say he looked a lump is an understatement, but each to their own.
    ] He was dressed in combats and on his right sleeve was an mp sign with a red circular SIB sign above the MP sign.
    ]He was wearing a red staple belt which looked really out of place, I cannot recall, well in my days anyway, left 1988 wearing a stable belt in combats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  2. S-T-A-B-L-E ffs!

    Apart from that was this fella wearing his stable belt over his combat jacket or through the belt loops of his trousers?
     
  3. Who cares?
     
  4. I'm surprised you saw a member of the SIB in uniform - rarer than hen's teeth! Maybe it was Mufti day!
     
  5. Through the loops, in shirt sleeve order
     
  6. Fancy dress?
     
  7. SIB Walt?
     
  8. Maybe a Charity "Wear Your Uniform For A Day" stunt.
     
  9. You're assuming members of the SIB actually have green DPM - most are wearing desert atm!

    My vote goes on fancy dress.
     
  10. If he looked smart it was fancy dress if he was a mess he was maintaining standards.
     
  11. Thought SIB uniform was a cheap shiny suit?
     
  12. I missed the obvious in the first post. If he was not wearing a beret then most likely was SIB.
     
  13. Was he also wearing a selection of 37 or so medals spanning from the Boar (yes Baor not BAOR) War through to today awarded from various different countries and including a number of prestigious valour awards? If so then he may have been a walt.

    Can we have a walt outing thread on this man? We have not had a walt thread on here for ages now!
     
  14. Sod the SIB - but the memories of Cap'n Jaspers.
    The evocative smell of the docks?
    The lovely selection of grub
    The Barbican (especially on a bank holiday)
    and
    the effin HUGE dive bombing seagulls that you had to fight off to keep your bloody chips to yourself!!!!!
