The Standards Of Royal Signals Officers

#1
On Sat 29 Sep 07 the TA Commisioning Course finished and had their final Parade.

Now I know that the Army has much better things to spend it's money on the and Officers sartorial elegance but FFS whatever happened to standards.

Your own hush puppies(?) with a hole in.

And the lovely blue socks just set the whole ensemble off.

Surely it would have been better to hide at the back rather than sit right in front of the two most cynical ex reg officers there that day.

I think he was TA but 'One Army' and all that - you never know.

Ah - the Royal Signals, the Primark Corps - cheap shoes with holes at a commissioning parade.

Adjt: "Mr New Boy ..... may I introduce you to the CO of 1,001 Sig Regt"

New Officer: "But Adjt, he's wearing the same shoes as my Grandfather in the nursing home, how can I have any respect for him?"

Adjt: " Go easy on your Grandfather Mr New Boy, the state pension doesn't stretch very far these days"


What a disgrace - any shots of the whole uniform?

It looks like he has had a poo as well.

Seriously, this is about par for a TA R Signals Officer. I am just surprised that the socks matched...

That is genuinely quite shocking. Don't these people have ANY sense of pride? FFS! :x

Have had to suffer these fools for a number of years now. Their attitude also matches their rather unseemly sartorial standards - very poor.

I have oft wondered why R Sigs do not have Regimental stables though I have come to realise that it may be due to their civilian attire scaring the horses!

When the Gentlemen of the Corps of Royal Engineers spawned the R Sigs, I think there must have been a degree of genetic mutilation involved. What a bunch of shoddy, arrogant tosspots.

What the fcuk has any of that got to do with a TA R Signals Officer?

Speaking as a former member of the Corps, I struggled to recall a half competant TA Officer.....

If you want tinternet, the LAST person you should approach is a Stab Scaley Officer :roll:

I didn't realise Hush Puppies were De Rigeur with ones service dress.

Ordering myself a new pair as we speak, though didn't like the brown ones so have chosen a rather bold mauve a la Jonathan Ross.

Am considering tie-dying the SD too, you know, to liven it up a bit.

Any chance of a decent photo of that blonde to his left?

OFH the hair isn't anything to go by. That's probably another R Sigs chap who thought it would be alright to let his hair grow a bit.
Yeah. yeah. You are young enough to be fussy! I ain't. If it looks like a duck................!

Sorry, no frontal view but if memory serves me she(?) was a little like Bernard Manning in a dress.

Now I know yo are not fussy but FFS don't lower yourself to the standards of a Signals Officer.........
