    Not much point in putting unit flashes or rank markings on helmets the flashes will be worn out before we get the helmets!:flagwave:

    unit flashes would be a good idea...also use the US system and have them on helmets for easy recognition of who's who.

    why not put the unit ID on the rank slider in subdued form as per the brits.Unit is very important but only to the members of that particular unit.

    In saying that judging by the turn out of some RDF personnel I have encountered recently they don't give a shite a bout their personal appearance so it might be well enough left alone than bring the reputation of the whole unit down.Uniform dress codes and even the simpler things like the polishing of boots seem to totally forgotten about since the introduction of the DPM uniform.Recently in Kilworth I observed a guy on parade with a polo type shirt under his DPM shirt....complete with collar and buttons....and sleves that protruded below the DPM shirt......and black civvy shoes.......Christ!

    While on the subject when have blonde highlights become standard requirement for females and even some males....something about changing appearance!

    God be with the Days when you had to have written permission from the GOC to grow a moustache.........earings will be mandatory next I suppose.

    I've always Said That Flashes should have been kept on the DPM's. All over the World Every Army has Subdued Flashes at least. Even in KFOR the Irish Soldiers Will have a Big Blue and White KFOR and Ireland Badge on their DPM's. Removing the Unit Badges from the Uniform causes the Unit to lose its Identity somewhat and its Esprit De Corps suffers aswell.

    Oh, I see.....I thought you were on about subdued flashes on your DPMs! (which would be a good idea, but only if everyone had them)

    They are actually talking about their flashes secretly sewn into the lining. Those die hards

    There shouldn't be any flashes on a uniform unless they are offically part of the uniform.....otherwise it isn't a uniform. Uniform means everything is the same.

    can someone get there hands on the wearing instructions for the DPM and publish same before this gets out of hand. God, we waited long enought for a decent uniform, now there are people who want to put unauthorized badges on it

    The idea of different berets is a good idea but a non starter due to cut backs
