Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was just wondering when is a soldier allowed to wear his uniform? Say if you were visiting your parents for a weekend or something, would you be allowed to wear your greens or are you only allowed to wear it on duty?

    sorry if it seems a stupid question & i had no idea where to ask this

  5. You are only allowed to wear uniform whilst in helmand. But to be allowed to wear it, you must be holding a 12ft wide sign saying 'mohammed blows goats for fun' and not be in proximity to another human being for 200 yards.
     
  6. I see the customary feeding frenzy has started....
     
  7. Depends. if you really are Sean Bean or even better, Sharpe himself, I may eat your arse deposits purely out of courtesy.
     
  8. Is this a wah or a wind up?
     
  9. I'm not falling for that wah by answering a really obvious question. FFS
     
  10. As I recall, you're supposed to wear it all the time, wearing civvies is a privilege that may be taken away. Having said that, the privilege became an SoP due to the Irish unpleasantness.

    Short answer, don't be a dick
     
  11. Why not just ask if you can spend the weekend big timing it. I and probably many others have driven home in the stuff in an effort to save five minutes but once you're home it is off. Why the **** would anyone want to wear their work clothes in their down time.

  14. I periodically shaved mine, softer than the GS. My favourite one ended up as thin as fuçk and tore - gutted
     
  15. Yes, yes that's where to buy it, but when can you wear it?
