Has anybody seen the new epaulettes?Apparently a very dark blue (nearly black),with one white bar for TMs,two bars for OMs and three bars for ROMs.
I have two questions: why change? and who thought of red and blue in the first place?
They cant,or wont,spend money on personal radios but we can watse thousands on a bit of uniform that means nothing to most people outside the service.
Remember,the motorway can be a dangerous place.

I agree. Saw them last week. Completer waste of money. I wonder how many brand new ties will have to be chucked?? Far better things the money could be spent on.

Is this a wind-up?

Was it something "under proposal" or something due to hit the Regions soon?

Heard about it, but not seen them yet.
I think the thought process behind is because the red epps clash with orange jackets :slhuh:

I missed that bit. New ties are to be introduced? During the summer! I can imagine a huge uptake of that idea!

And if you think of some of the c**p left in the outstation sink or cars at shift changeover, imagine some of the crap on the dirty b*****rs who don't wash their hands after a visit to tesco's or MC'D'S facilities :slh:.

I take it it's not an issue cos OM'S/ROM'S are on personal issue.

We ain't even got disinfectant wipes yet, never mind new epulattes and no one else even touches mine :slhuh:
