    too many friends to list in that. ( for bonus points spot the IMO members )


    I seem to recall previous COS wearing subdued rank on the slider, both him and GOC East have hi-viz sliders, are they new ?

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

      New style cap badges as well - similar to the peaked caps.

        The COS is wearing his Corps designated headgear

        but he is not part of the Cav Corps anymore.

        The COS is worng to wear the Glengarry.


        Kudos on having a Bugler on camp

        The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
        The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.

          By that logic should Ralph James revert to an army uniform given he is no longer in charge of the AC.

          Even if the GOC is wrong to wear the Glengarry..who is going to tell him..he is after all the boss.

            Exactly Murph

            but surely as COS he is bound by the same regs as the newest and most junior Private-

            Or is it simply a matter of do as I say

              I do think the Glengarry is wrong as COS as his Corps is now the Army as a whole as apart to a seperate section.

              While his peaker is the same as normal, so should his lanyard, again he retains his lanyard. Should DF HQ not have their own lanyard as they do flash and then if so isn't standardized headgear appropriate while in all forms of uniform and regardless of rank shouldn't the COS be obliged to comply.

              I know there is probably a certain 'one up manship ' coming from the Cavalry but point made get over it and conform as did the forebearers of the job.

                He's not not the first.


                In the 80/90's there was a CQ in the ASM in Cathal Brugha who came from the Cav and continued to wear the Glengarry.

                  and he came to a sticky end

                  let that be a warning to the COS

                      At risk of censure for referring to BA but Gen M Jackson a recent BA COS always wore his para beret even when receiving a decoration at Buck Castle albeit with out the para wing badge, poss the trend has arrived here.
                      The high vis sliders are fine so long as there are no hostile snipers about.

                        Re: the red rank slide. I don't think it's much of an issue seeing as red tabs are worn on the epaulettes, even with the subdued rank.

                          Hi Vis sliders really defeat the purpose of Uniform dress.

                          It would lead to believe that the senior ranks have suddenly acquired an inferiority complex and need their rank markings to be highly visible.

                          has this begun since the previous COS's demise or was it in place prior?

                          I reckon they're desperately trying to figure out how to get gold braid on their respective headress at this stage.

                              Are those cap badges just embroidered on??
