Matelots, squaddies, booties and even crabs are easy to spot, you can see them a mile away, but why? I see all these Walters at Remembrance parades with their bling medals and wonder what is the point? To be confused for a member of HM Forces all you need are the following convincing items: A train platform: Gash haircut: Sideys (matelots, booties and very ally squaddies only): Pussers grip: Shirt from Louis Bernard & Jack Blair: Some light refreshment for the train journey home: Have I missed anything? What other items/characteristics make us stand out? Edited to add: I have considered the security issues of this thread but to be honest, any terrorist worth his salt already knows what we all look like anyway, just check Facebook.
