    If the said individual is not in the DF, then he is not entitled to wear the said jacket. And the
    Defence Act is a legal Statute, in which there are rules on the wearing and prohibition of
    wearing of uniform. So if the individual is in breach of this Act, then surely that is a breach of the
    law, and a case could be made for the jacket to be confiscated by the Gardai on behalf of the MP's.
    Would be a bit daft for a bystander to get involved in trying to reef the jacket from his shoulders,
    the bystander would be needing an ambulance crew, never mind the Gardai...

    Yea or nay?

    To be placed under citizens arrest,you need to have been observed commiting a felony. So far we are trying to establish if a person wearing such garment is commiting a felony? The evidence says no,and I do not know of any case of wrongful arrest in the court by an aggreived dpm smock wearer..

    So I'll say no(unless proved otherwise)

    Don't know............

    HEY ! Wasn't it you who was going on about the scruff ball going around Newbridge
    wearing DPM?

    Simple answer... drop into DFTC MP Coy up in the Curragh Camp and ask them.
    They'll get the Gardai on the case, and c'est ca...

    Sorry for starting a debate about this, but no-one here answered the question I was looking for in the first place :

    My question is, in practise, have people been placed under citizen arrest by others in the past for wearing the uniform when not a memeber of the RDF/PDF or out of training/working hours.

    That's all I wanted to know, has anyone ever been placed under citizen arrest in the past...

    Whatever about respect for the Irish Army, that is a different topic altogether.

    It could be because the PDF generally have good access to clothing stores and get the kit they need, where as the RDF have to beg/borrow/steal.

    Surely the old green kit, in it's time, was as much the uniform of the state as DPM is now, and it's widespread misuse had no adverse consequences either to the reputation of the DF or the security of the country. Maybe those who are really concerned should carry out citizen's arrests in pubs, clubs and building sites. The subsequent court cases will make great reading. In fact since there's never been a proper Irish crimebusting superhero, apart from Miss Flanagan in the Ireland's Own, I sense an opportuniy here. A concerned citizen who enforces DF dress regulations throughout the universe? To uniformity and beyond.

    We are only talking about the new stuff not the old green kit.
