Not ex-forces myself but I am my local RBL branch Parade Marshal and I personally would welcome any service personnel whether in 95s or No2 dress. I would prefer 2 dress but combats perfectly acceptable.
You would be warmly received and royally looked after in the bar later.

would 95's be frowned upon?
I doubt any old soldiers will pull you up on it. Most TA, nearly all ACF adults and cadets are issued with nothing else. Just look as smart as you can in it

No one should grip you for wearing 95s, but if they do tell them 'it's a festival of rememberance, not a fashion parade.'

Then tell them to fück off and mind there own business

Stand tall and be proud. I went to the RBL poppy ball over here last night and was unsure to wear my minatures or not with the old black tie ensemble. Turned up and all the veterans were wearing them (so I put mine on) as one said "You earned them......."

So I say again Stand Tall and Be Proud.

If you've got No 2s then you should wear them as opposed to Cbt 95. You shouldn't wear blues.

Either way, ensure you're immaculate and don't be tempted to hang one on in the pub afterwards in uniform. You never know who might be cutting around in civvies....

Agreed - blues for celebration, 2's for remembrance.

I shall attend in civvies, the act of rememberance is personal, from me to them, I will not seek attention, I will also be pissed as it's the regi reunion tonight.
