    I should have been clearer, what I meant, was a black belt for day to day wear as opposed to the current Green material belt with the No. 1's. I'll need to chat to the Q about those black gloves though!

      Was not aware of this. Probably means the rest of us will never get it so!! I'd ask for pics, but I doubt there's any in the public sphere.

        That may have been the case back in the mid '90's,when the 58 Pattern belt was worn by all enlisted with SD's when weapons were carried. ARW didn't use 58 ptn belts they used their issued leather pistol belts. Nowadays ARW in SDs wear the same as the rest of the Army.

His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

          There was one in the Cosantoir circa 1994. Group shot of the Wing wearing different Uniforms.

            • Did the snipers pic up new helmets, those aren't the same model the Wing use.

                Nope. Not ARW. Purchased for the IWW for use in the Competition.

                • Any whispers on the new field uniform?

                    • I was shown a pic of the multicam and TBH I could not tell the difference between our proposed and next door's. Are we just going with a tricolour to differentiate ?

                        Likely to be a slight variation, but if that's the case, it'll be good news as there's plenty of Multicam out there, so additional pouches, skip caps etc will easily be available.
                        What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                          Is there a proposed Irish palette then?

                          even looking at Multicam & MTP side by side there are differences but unless you knew they were different it would be difficult to tell

                          cheaper to go off the shelf

                            There's probably a shamrock baked into the pattern somewhere :D

                            • Actually scrap that it was probably the pictures I was looking at

                              Crye's "Regular" MultiCam® is directly compatible with British Multi-Terrain Pattern (MTP) camouflage as the difference is pattern is subtle but the colour palette is the same. MTP camouflage uses the original British DPM "brush strokes" pattern
