RFA 1980's

When (year) did the RFA deck rates actually get a uniform? I seem to remember that RFA Officers were directly recruited but deck rates were taken on via MN who didn't have a uniform

It was post Falklands war, I was on an RFA in1994 and the RFA guys were in 8's then.

I’m aware of two RFA ship’s company photographs, one from 1972 and another from (I think) 1981) in which the JRs wear ‘milk churn’ caps with what look like 8s.

The 72 one was one of the Rover Class, escorting HM in Brittania so it may be that appearances were important.

A lot of RFA people mostly wore overalls during the RAS in the 70's, the 'Off Watch' queens who were watching usually wore Mini-skirts, stocking and spenders !............
