Action Working Dress

Nope, a RN captain holds the position of Captain Sea cadets. The highest rank an actual SCC officer can be is commander, plus the SCC officers don’t wear shoulder tabs as they have wavy rings. (Though Admiral of the sea cadets is Prince Andrew!!!)

Neggers cheggers, Prince Andrew was quietly chucked after the recent ahem... Epstein kerfuffle, with the result that the position of Admiral of the Corps is currently vacant, which is a shame IMO.

There are also 'Honorary Commodores' within the SCC -the last one appointed was the entrepreneur Jack Petchey, who has donated plenty of wonga to the corps over the years. Not a substantive thing as far as I know, so there'd be no uniform or rank insignia associated with it.

SCC officers do wear the soft shoulder tabs incidentally, as well as the hard shoulderboards, with of course their own 'wavy navy' rank lace. Warrant officers and senior rates have the same as their RN equivalents on the soft shoulder tabs, with 'SCC' underneath.

Intrigued as to how the revised RNPCS is going to play out: almost seems as if they needn't have bothered, the new design is almost exactly the same as the last issued version of AWD!

Cheers for some of the info skips, most I know though as I’m SCC too (didn realise Randy Andy had been binned though).

To be honest with the face we’ve had RNPCS for 5 years and are now changing over, it’ll be atleast another 5-6 years before the corps gets a look in. In the meanwhile, there’s still plenty of 8’s shirts floating about and at least the cadets will look a little more similar to us now we’re going back to shirts with shoulder slides.

To be fair, anything has got to be better that the old 8's/4's?

Cant see why the RN doesn't adopt a Navy Blue version of what the Army Wear (not sure what's its called?) and the crabs a pinkish version.

That’s what we currently have and are getting rid of. The crabs mostly wear MTP same as the Army these days.

I liked the old 8’s, personally.
And the Red Sea Rig. Not the tropical version though, gay.

There is no tropic Red Sea rig any more. We got rid of shorts, deck shoes/ sandals to pay for the blue PCS we currently wear.

Tropic 3’s is still about but that’s only worn alongside and consists of tropic trousers with a 3’s shirt.

Forgive my ignorance (I left in 08) are both rigs identical except the colour?

No worries, this stuff came out in 2015, it’s separate lightweight jacket and trousers, with a belt, but many people assume it’s overalls because of the colour.

They’re mostly the same, but the cammo stuff is copyrighted so the RN version is a knockoff with the measurements being out. A thicker material and also fire retardant. Also, there are pockets on the sleeves of the mtp stuff but I cut them off so I could roll the sleeves up.
