Lt Commander Busted by Sun for selling his uniform on ebay

I've bought a few bits of Navy kit from eBay. Officers caps, cap tallies and Dinner jackets spring to mind for photoshoots. Use my old No1s for photoshoots as well.

I know when I left, I had to hand in my No1's, DMS boots, 2 pairs of 4's and my 5's.

Do officers have the same ruling on this if so, I think this my just be a bite!

Or is my logical thinking off tracks??

The only bit of kit that is required to be handed back to Naval Stores (SLOPS) on leaving the service is your AGR. All the other stuff is disposed of due to H+S regs (skin complaints ect).

It used to be that all JR/SR uniform items, plus any loan items (AGR, Flight Kitbag, Steaming bats etc) was returned if you had done less than 22 years. ( Unless you were a Dusty and didn't return anything usually ;) )

As I now understand, from posts on other threads, all kit is issued on a 141 basis, does this not mean that all kit is only loaned (and therefore must still belong to Pusser) should be returned ?

Yes you are right especialy about the Dusty bit, but it costs so it gets disposed of. Some gets sent to the cadet units some gets destroyed. Its not a great system but its what they have in place.

A Lt Cdr earns less than a Chief Submariner. What an incentive to sell your birthright.

Bet you would for his pension though!

All, depends if you're a Lt Cdr with SP too, doesn't it - smart arse. Wonder what your first salary out fo the mob will be? Unless your exceptionally lucky it will exceptionally lower than £50k - start saving that SP.

If you're a Lt Cdr on SP(SM) and Nuclear Pay you wouldn't get out of bed for £50k a year :thumright:

Try typing in "SAS" to the Ebay search and see what comes up. Its a standing joke on Arrse that anything and everything the pongoes have surplus is chucked on there with SAS -issue. Any Sun journos out there want to buy from me? I've got a fouly jacket somewhere, my old beret and some rank slides. £150 sounds like a good price.

The real shame is that some scum journo didn't try to just walk in wearing the kit. I'm quite like to see the headlines when MOD Plod shot him.
The Sun journalist would have stood out a mile what with tits hanging out and all!

Does anybody want my kit bag by the way. It's in the loft and has been for a while now! It's pining for the fjords!

without giving Osama and pals the wrong impression about base security, I spent most of my career getting back on board with nothing more than a swish pair of civvies (kebab stains and sambuca down the front) A minging grid and the Condor wave. Hardly ever showed my ID card.

Lukep: Recognition is the best form of security. And anyone dumb enough to return on board Condor in your civvies, with just a kebab for company (i.e. 'did not trap!'), is obvously a Royal. 'Nuff said!

:lol:

Re: Lt Commander Busted by Sun for selling his uniform on eb

Just read this thread and found some of the comments quite amusing and somewhat puzzling.
I was commissioned as an SD in 1963 and bought my uniform (with the uniform allowance). Didn't have to hand any of it back when I took early retirement in 1976. Kept it all just in case I was called back for any reason. When you managed to liberate the Falklands without me I felt able to dispose of most of it.My stepson then aged 7 wanted an overcoat so my then wife converted my old style officers greatcoat into one for a 7 year. Although I was only a 2 ringer (a Junior officer) there was enough gold braid to put Admiral of the Fleet stripes on both sleeves. To the best of my knowledge he never tried to enter any government establishments. The coat was then passed to my other son and was eventually passed to a junior school for dressing up play.
However when I was at Faslane in the early seventies a chum of mine entered there every working day for the best part of a year with a picture of a gorilla on his ID card.
Another time again in the 70s when I was visiting Dolphhin quite regularly I would just get saluted as I drove in and never had my ID card checked, even as I was learning russian at the time and beside having tthe car player spouting in russian, the russian alphabet all over the windscreed in lettraset as an aide memoir and I was usually wearing sunglasses..
Still have my flying suit as I used it to wear when gliding and kept my sword which is over the mantlepiece in my office. I was amazed to find out a couple of years ago that Gieves were charging best part of 2 grand for one. Although they were optional I lashed out and bought mine new for under £30 with a belt as well.
Hell I don't feel as old as that makes me sound. I'm still a yoof at heart :angel12:
