Ok at first this seems like a stupid question, surly its because it shows senior ranking ?, well why dont the RAF and army have this? RAF and army officers still wear the same as there soldiers/airmen do, correct me if im wrong but they wear the same thing right? to me it just seems better, makes everyone look and feel like there on the same playing field so to say, also the navy officer "smart" uniform looks alot better then the ratings in my opinion. just wondering why, if anyone could enlighten me on why id be very appreciative.

Also when i say "smart" i think i mean number 1's ? ( the uniform they would wear for remembrance day for example )

Pay attention the the way all three services dress and you will soon see that the uniforms worn by officers are different to those worn by NCOs and privates.
The quality and the cut are different, officer uniform will always look smarter than those that they are in charge of.
It's just that in the RN the difference is more marked between junior rates and officers. At a quick glance it would seem that the PO, CPO and officers are wearing the same uniform. Closer inspection reveals that officers have 8 buttons on their jackets where NCOs have 6. Material used for an officers uniform used to be a more expensive material.

Officers and senior rates wear a 'smarter' uniform because in the main their command of the English language is much better than the ratings.

To be honest I don't think it's a matter of sarcasm. I could barely understand what this **** was on about and could not really see a question in the post. As for the RAF/RFA confusion I would think a typo is unlikely and the OP is simply a fuckwit.

To be fair he did put out a warning in the first sentence that it was a stupid question. He could just be pished.

Yes bad show Finks old chap...3 buggers got in before you, your position as "RR Spelling and Grammar Nazi" could be revoked.
Luckily we have a "Spelling and Grammar Nazi" Nazi, ready to take over, that's if he has time from running his own site.

I have only been out the loop for a short period of time yet I return to find that there has been an incursion of fucktards during that absence. Having had a quick scan round I see that the old ones (fucktards that is) are still on- board and spouting the same old detritus.

You have me all wrong spidriver, I can't spell for shit. Had a look at that site you and frog are on about and to be fair I doubt it takes much running but alas it isn't mine.

Hey ianandadrian....don't worry about not being able to spell, but do try and get names right, otherwise people will think you're thick...except where I've done it as sarcasm.
