Havent heard anything about the uniform changing, but a lot of branch badges are with the implementation of PCP.

What sort of change had you heard about? As it had small changes regularly for as long as I can remember, whether it be badge design and colours, No1s for females, foulies or just change in design due to change in contract.

People shouldn't be afraid of change, its evolution, not a revolution!! :wink:

No, all that has changed, as Dixie has said, are the branch badges with the introduction of the new branches.

There are the occasional alterations such as foulie jackets, AWD etc, but the basic uniform is still the same.

Many years ago there was talk of having a tri service uniform. Each service would then be distinguished by cap badge, arm badge, lapel badge etc. The reasons given were that they were looking for savings (no surprise there) and that having one standard service uniform would save money. Suspect it was one of those "good ideas" that occasionally crop up and nothing became of it.

The Canadians went through this idiot-type evolution in the 70s. They all took on the appearance of Southdown bus conductors; but lacking their smartness.

As ever, the bean counters do not grasp the pride woven into a uniform. During my time with BFFI, my office was next-door to SCAF. I remember well the constant binds from the Crabs over having to wear OG or, worse still, DPM (Theatre Rig). The girls were the loudest. A lovely little SAC reckoned that she joined the Air Force because she liked the uniform and objected to looking like a Pongo Pixie.
