Spock the difference! Plans for a new RAF uniform are ridiculed for looking like Star Trek costumes as MoD chiefs say there is 'need for change' due t

Can we all say "work dress" together?
I'm not sure that many people actually understand when the different uniforms are supposed to be worn. For example, doing a Remembrance Day parade with everyone in cadpat.

Yes.....the plastic material was awful though.

If it was just made from some decent cotton/blended stuff it would probably be fine IMHO.
No. It sucked. You call it work dress but in the field units if you don't look like a shiny new penny wearing it, you're for the high jump, boyo. In Lahr we wore it to morning roll call, hung it up in our lockers and put coveralls on over pt kit, changed back at lunch, then again to go home. It was a giant pecker pull.

Chocks Away Team - The New RAF Uniform Debate


In a week when attention focused on how much the UK was spending on enhancing the MOD military capability in space (approx. £1.4bn), the RAF seemed determined to take it one step further and create uniforms for their ‘away team’. Leaked slides have put forward proposals that show a new look RAF uniform that looks more ‘Galaxy Quest’ than modern military.

Naturally these proposals have drawn the ire of veterans, and some serving personnel, who ridicule the concepts under consideration and generated reams of media coverage. But is this proposed change actually a bad thing?

You could have replaced "RAF" with "RCAF" and it would read pretty much perfectly.

Well, minus the hot water issues (that I know of).

Roger that. Spit shone boots, Ironed shirts and pants and jackets. Lets not forget the Regimental Ascots, dickies etc that we were made to buy.
