FIELD SERVICE CAP (also called "SIDE CAP/HATS"): alongside stiff forage caps, by the 1880s the Army had a soft “Forage Cap for Active Service and Peace Manoeuvres". For normal Line Infantry this was their Glengarry; for most others it was the simple boat-shaped Torin cap which a few regiments still retain. The non-Scottish Glengarry and most Torin caps were before Long replaced by an Austrian pattern cap that could unfold more elaborately into a form of Balaclava, fastening with two buttons. This remains the main style of the Field Service Cap/ Side Hat of today (ADR Part 1 para 01.190 & ADR Part 9 para 09.0110-09.0112).

Multi Terrain Pattern (MTP) Camouflage

a n n n b b b e e e Multi Terrain Pattern (MTP) Camouflage The

The latest Multi Terrain Pattern (MTP) camouflage soon to be

issued to troops deploying to Afghanistan. It has been specifically

designed for the Green Zone area that runs through Afghanistan

where the regular desert terrain camouflage can be less effective.

It is the first time since 1968 that the Armed Forces have changed

the camouflage pattern. The Multi-Terrain Pattern will eventually

become the new look of the British Armed Forces.

Rank Badges/Chevrons for Greatcoats: ADC Decision on Chevrons for Rifles Greatcoats:

Chevrons on Greatcoats (R IRISH/Ghurkhas/ RIFLES). The Committee agreed that a standard black worsted on dark green cloth 1/2in deep chevron would be appropriate for R IRISH, GURKHAS and RIFLES. It would be incorrect for regimental patterns to be used. Local purchase should be used for procurement. A sample item should be passed to PS12(A) for approval prior to any full order being placed.
