It's not true until Norman says it's not like it was in his day
Update from 1SL on the abolition of 3’s. Galaxy 08-2021 basically says it’s not going to happen and 3’s here to stay for now. New rig being released in a couple of months to Kipion units first.
Two interesting posts.Wearing of black caps/cap covers is now being delayed because (as already alluded to in this thread) they forgot about female Officers/SRs.
Certainly similar to the NYFD.....Two interesting posts.
I am aware of a number of people, of all genders, ranks and rates, who are not keen on dumping No3 dress. The Captain of RAL put all officers and SR back into 3's, in apparent contravention of the instructions from Whale Island. Perhaps the "revolution" from a pretty significant establishment turned some heads, and some minds?
The tricorn thing is also a point. Female officers I have chatted to hate the intended new cap. I think its a bit American, but my opinion is hardly relevant here. Ironically the introduction of the new female Off/SR cap negates @alfred_the_great 's point about tricorn covers not being available.
As has been said upthread; a whirlwind of "transformation ideas" against "deliverable and sensible". I despair, I really do.
So now he has a black cap the order to wear PCS all the time has been rescinded?
Hypocrisy stalks Whale Island, I fear.
