Ah, well that just highlighted my ignorance. I thought barrack-dress was more expensive than combat uniform. Why else would they have cut it out (or reduced it, i really do not know) in the first place?
What happened to shirt combat they are harder wearing than shirt No 2,talking about barrack dress,seen last week , A WO2 of the local BSTT with shirt sleeves "cut Off"on cs 95, what an example to set the young soldiers and whats wrong with the issue shoes for Barrack dress,
Issue shoues !! Are you a maschocisist ( Hey im dislexic) Id rather wear hob nail clogs. Talking about footwear I had a pair of boots on trial for jungle use , trialed them in Borneo. Shite at being jungle boots thay are but fantastic camp boots . Three years seeing the sharp end of an accelerator pedal and the best JHQ carpet Just like me slippers, Belting
MASOCHIST CALLING SLIPPERS!! fc all wrong with issue shoues(shoes) better than the george boots i,vegot 'kin things really do cripple me , got nothing to do with rthe fact that they are a size too small
i am in he army cadets and our normal dress is lightweights at our det. Most cadets now have the type without a map pocket. We also get the new type gs shirts but they make you sweat and chaf your neck but they do look smarter.
WE dont get barrack dress any more but i do think the army has gone down hill with uniform. wearing 95s in barracks is completeley pointless and looks stupid.
It is a shame 2 see cadets looking smarter then the TA on remembrance day.
Bring back barrack dress but not the old plastic type
My RSM recently returned from the RSM's Seminar at Sandhurst - apparently they were all briefed that CS95 in barracks was out wef 2005, and in-barracks uniform would be a new issued form of Service Dress (1 jacket and 2 pairs of trousers), and a new style shirt.
Oh - how I miss my good old KF shirt, perhaps if we ask nicely we can have those brought back. Any takers .... ?
