      Welcome aboard mate

      since Ground hog was a recruit

      in the 12 th Legion

      The best lack all conviction, while the worst
      Are full of passionate intensity.

          I think the rumour machine on that one ran out of steam.

            this one has been doing the rounds since the eighties, getting a boost with the introduction of the red beret for PA's. rumour had it that logs would be getting grey ones, and so on with the colour coding to follow the same set up as the brits. I even heard stories from those involved with clearing out the old group stores when clancy closed, that there was a stock of approx 2000 grey berets being moved

                    There are only 3 people in the ARW. They just move so fast is looks like theres more of them.

                      Heard that the RDF are to get a different colour of beret, as the danger wing are not impressed that both their and the RDF beret are similar. Then again I don't think there is any danger of the both being confused even if they had the same beret.

                        Peaked Caps for all ranks with the SD No1s

                        A Coquette(? one of those feathery things) in the beret representing unit/bde

                          Peaked caps for SD no 1's is a definite proposition

                          and the sash for Senior NCO's has been tested

                          still waiting the results

                          I reckon for SD No 1's

                          we should revert to the slouch hat worn by the Irish Citizens Army during the 1916 rising

                            I reckon a smart bone through the nose would suit 1 S Bde troops.

                              I think a 7.62mm lead injection would suit E Bde troops
