Stable Belts

#1
Since it appeared on orders that Stable Belts were no longer to be worn with CS95 I've seen a number of members continue to do so. Are there exceptions to the rule, e.g. in training establishments, or are these just 'getting away with it'?

Okay Corps dress regs state No stable belts, however this is dependant on individual CO and RSM fettishes. You may be part of a multiple cap badge environment and
it is easier to spot rather than reliance on the TRF or part of the elite and the more RLC bling the better

Cheers, I did think it was a Corps wide directive - didn't realise there were potential exceptions. (And I miss the bling :) )

I dont miss the bling. Same way im hoping our Regt's powers-that-be decide to stop the stupid rule of Officers/WO's of our Regt having to wear Barrack Dress one day a week!
Roll on the next few weeks and we get PCS. But then i suspect my joy will be short lived when we have to be tucked in and sleeves up.....contrary to DRLC direction!

I think I am being thick, but how can Corps dress regs state one thing and CO's make their own rules up. Is this not going against Corps/DRLC directives. Personally I can't stand the Corps stable belt and would much prefer the good old green belt.

sounds about right.

instead of looking forward to PCS - you are already dreading wearing it tucked-in.


sad but true.

join the club.

Off message? I think he/she is bang on, Officers are taught at Sandhurst to disobey Dress Regs at regular occasions during their career. It is how they judge the Robustness and leadership qualities of WOs & SNCOs. Pse grip him/her immediately with a polite and sarcastic remark reminding him/her of the Corps dress policy.

If you choose not to grip them their lack of personal discipline will spread to other areas and before you know it, they will forget to meet your MS deadlines......
