I dont know mate, its really pathetic, did you not see that in paper a few month back.
A para came back from afghanistan and got called a murderer of some lads
A us soldier went home, and got drinks bought for him and his hand shook off everyone he saw on civvy street
its getting pathetic
From an AFCO perspective, we find that Royal Marines wearing CS95 out & about merely creates the impression they are in the Army and does little for recognition or recruiting.
Experience indicates that DPM Trousers & a green polo shirt, commando dagger motif on the front together with big daft 50 mm letters on the back (for the hard of hearing) stating: "Royal Marines Commando" does the trick far better. Alternatively wearing half Lovats works better than CS95 as again it differentiates.
why would people want to attack you though if you are a marine and doing the world some good? :dontaskme:
Im all for creating recognition and publicity for the RM, and by doing organsied publicity events once I pass out etc. However I just think randomly sat in a pub wearing your beret is screaming out for attention, and saying "yea thats right Im better than you"
