Is that any wonder, Joe Public sees more of the sea cadets than the RN these days!phil1972 said:And just to keep some balance I like my cap, RAN style or otherwise.
The only thing that does p**s me off is getting mistaken for a Sea Cadet at Remembrance ceremonies!!
I personally think caps look much better, having been a beret wearer in the RNXS. OK, you tuck the things under your wooley pulley eppulette things or through your money belt (not sure I was supposed to do that though) but the dog bowls/hats look much more tiddly.Nutty said:See attached picture of proper caps with bow wave, not flat RAN style crap. Now is that not 100 time smarter than a beret. And don't give me all that old crap about beret are more convenient just for the lazy more like.
Was a Lading Boy one who wasn't sure which gender he belonged too? And did he assist the Leading Boy in anyway.Nutty said:Steve
Going on the picture taken from your 1974 pamphlet the picture is early 70's as they carry FN or SLR Rifles. Prior to these Th Navy was equipped with Lee Enfield 303's certainly until the mid 60's of later. When it came to hand held weapons the Navy was to the end of the food chain. In 1968 the Truncheon was still issued with Sten Guns of WW11 vintage.
The white gaiter denote the grade of Badge Boy or Leading Boy who were the class leaders. Three grades, Lading Boy, Petty Officer Boy and Junior Instructor.
Steve please consult the Oracle before you make these technical statements.Always_a_Civvy said:
