yes mate but do you use the Royal Navy or RNR :lol:

CS95 with the navy blue RNR slides, or any other dark blue rate slides, look ridiculous - those in the exalted positions of killick and above have usually obtained CS95 slides, while those at AB level wear a mix of blue, green or nothing! The joys of uniformity :)

Since when has the Navy worried about sailors looking ridiculous? And what about 'right kit for the job'? I saw the SPO team on HMS KENT the other week all in CS95s in temperatures of 40C!

And clearly more than a bit 'damp'.

I have to say, though, that lightweights are probably the most comfortable kit I have ever had to wear - brilliant, even if they do look a bit 'lived in' compared to some of the natty stuff the Yanks have got
