Uniform at Work Day

#1
Just received a letter from my unit saying that the UAWD is 25th June.

" It will serve to highlight the duel role that Reservists play as part of the Armed Forces and wider society"

"The aim is to encourage support for the TA and reservists in order to promote pride in the achievements of the Army at home and on operations and will remind the public that people in the TA live and work in the community"


Will anyone be wearing theirs? It Will be a big treat for NRPS etc!

what do you mean look like a bellend???

I would look alley as f0ck in dessie, assult rig and helemet, I might even get some of that orange self tan stuff and use it as cam cream for extra alley points :D

I could then tell all the ladies at work my tales from herrick and how brave I was and how hard it was back then,

but on a serious note our Sqn was paying people a days wage last year to do it........ I wander why there not doing the same offer this year ?? :)

and before you ask no I didnt do it last year :roll:

I would feel a right twat!!!! However, I often wear my Regimental tie or a small lapel badge...and I feel that is appropriate in the line of work I do.

If some of my old muckers were to wear their uniforms I think the poor civvies will be a bit shocked! 3 of them work on the bin lorries so turning up in their combats might have the civvies thinking the Army have gotten desperate and have started using bright yellow bin lorries!

If I had something that was more smart than CS95, I'd be happy to... Even the crabs have shoes and smart(ish) trousers to wear at times like this, I'd ust look like someone that has come into the office after a tough day pigeon shooting or ferreting.

You won't be able to spot them anywhere between the First & the Nineteenth...

I wouldn't mind but it has to be something smarter than CS95s :roll:
Tried ironing it? Maybe a bit of polish on the boots?
In a smart office environment? It's still not acceptable garb.
It is however part of the visible public image of the British Army. Something the day is designed to promote.

When you parade with the TA do you wear CS95, or do you go in for something a little smarter?

You mean that pre C95 DPM Combat Trs are no longer the clothing of choice for Refuse Disposal Technicians :?
