    The high vis sliders are fine so long as there are no hostile snipers about.
    I know I'm replying five years too late but I can’t help myself. BA officers retain most elements of their previous regimental uniform when they hit Colonel (full) and up. Most officers aside from some combat support officers (medical and the likes), join the general staff at this rank and thus change cap badge (lion surmounting the crown). Parachute regiment dress regulations use a beret on number one and mess dress instead of a peaker. I believe that the AAC is the same. Thus, he is simply following his regiment’s regulations for dress.

    Then again, I remember seeing him pictured with a peaker too. I guess being COGS means that you can do what you like! See current COGS General Nick Carter below….

    If there was ever a one upmanship attitude i'm sure the previous COS could have just brushed off his ARW berret & just said, 'Game over, i win!'
    It was the Man in the Uniform that commanded respect, not the Uniform on the Man.

    As HH eluded to, its down to the admin instructions I reckon.


    Murph: Agree completely

    Are those cap badges just embroidered on??

    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.

    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.

    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
