Wearing stable belt

#1
Just completed my phase 1 training. Do you know if we are allow to wear the stable belt now or we can only wear it after Phase 2 training.

Also is it given to you free?

It all depends what Capbadge/trade you are, I know that the RLC soldiers wear stable belts in phase 2, So do the Royal Engineers. If you dont have one then im sure there will be somewhere to buy one at your phase 2 establishment. And free? have a guess.

That's changed fairly recently then. They used to be presented at the end of Phase 2.

Ours are presented at the end of phase two. An exception was made as the unit was getting the Freedon of somewhereville and some of the Phase one guys were marching too.

RAF Reg't fashion at the moment is to wear the Regimental buckle with the green 'working' belt rather than the RAF dark blue/light blue/red banded one.

This along with removal of the RAF TRF from all shirts and smocks proves once again that even the Rocks hate the RAF.

Still think it looks gash though.

I'm RE (albeit TA) and we aren't supposed to wear until finished TSC(B) and considered 'trained soldier'.......And have to part with cash to the RSM to aquire one too..

Everyone I know has had to part with cash for their stable belt, one way or another.

Like above, wait and see what other people do, otherwise if you have DS who aren't absolute gash sacks ask them.

Everyone knows the RAF Regt are SF so don't need any badges.

Everyone knows the RAF Regt are Special needs so aren't allowed any badges.
There, fixed it for you

Incidentally the belts shrink like buggery, my one is 20 years old and is only half the size it was....
