    Thats what I was saying. According to the scale of issue printed on RDFRA the white lanyard is now to be issued after 18 months service

    It also mentions black leather gloves. Would these be for tactics or are they worn with the no.1's?

      The only RDF personnel who get issued lanyards are the MPs (red) and Artillery (white). They are only issued to personnel of these corps.

      The black leather gloves are worn with SD No1s.

        There is supposed to be a bde lanyard gonna be issued to all units bar p.as.Unit lanyards are gonna be phased out.
        Bam bam ,the barrack boot light operational is the magnum boot>It is replacing the 24bs which are going off the issue.Good guess on the new ceremonial boot

          Been in the service for 2 years issued safety boots (leaking in water) 2 shirts (good condition) 2 Pants (one covered in paint) norweigian fleece, combat pants/boots and jacket, number 1's and rank markings.

          Since then ive bought unoffical gear such as royal navy shirts and I bought a pair of safety boots online. The stores never have what you want.

            If anyone is having problems getting things they are entitled to on the new scale of issue. You can quote "Logs Admin Instruction 02/06" - that says what you are entitled to. That is the scale of issue as seen on rdfra.ie (note is slightly different from the one in the newsletter, the one on the website is correct).

                Was checking the scale of issue at:

                http://www.rdfra.ie/Misc/scale.shtml#AR

                ... seeing as we are going into that time of the year again.
                I noted that there is no mention of the woolly jumper of old - presume this is being
                removed from the scale of issue to the Army Reserve.

                This is what I'm referring to, for the rookies....



                What then, do troops wearing DPM, wear in cold weather?
                I'm thinking about the newer members of the RDF, who may not have been
                issued with same along with their DPM's.

                There is no provision for the issue of the fleece liner in lieu of the jumper.
                And before anyone mentions it, the Norgie is not for wear in barracks.

                At least that's my understanding. Would not be practical to be togging off the
                DPM shirt when indoors, to remove the Norgie, only to have to go in reverse,
                when going out in cold weather again.


                Anyone know the answer to this one?

                  Until the Military Authorities cop on and put the fleece on the scale of issue (among other things) then the norgie is the only option

                    You wear your smock! Their is talk that both the fleece and norgie are gonna be replaced by one type of fleece top.Possibly made by lowe alpine.The woolie jumper is rarely worn these days except by those employed in offices.

                          the wooly pully was issued for a while instead of norgies but AFAIK it has been withdrawn from issue but not from service.

                            my understanding was that the norgie was not to be worn over a shirt or under a jumper and i have yet to be repramanded by a sgt major ( pdf or rdf) but i did get pulled for wearing the fleece in the mess over my shirt

                              The norwegian and the fleece can be worn in bks, but not as outer layers. Your top layer must always be DPM.

                                Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't connect show an RDF soldier modelling the jumper over the DPM shirt for cold weather ( he was modelling the smock in another pic). What are the standing orders on this?
