It`s part of the uniform for our branch.
Not my choice or decision...........?
At least a Royal Navy badge would differentiate us from pongos and crabs.

I would have thought No1's or other more recognisable RN rig would have been more appropriate surely? Isnt the whole point of the Memo that we arent visible enough as RN in the public eye, who think anyone in CS95 is a Perce?

Yes we have. You can have as much waterproofing and layers with 4s as with CS95. Foulie jacket & overtrousers; wooly pulley; 4's with white tshirt. There is a new combats design in the works which will be too expensive to issue to those who don't really need them, hence the decision. I don't think you have a valid drip here.
