    Absolutely terrible, especially hoses and kilts. I hope the WO2 got extra Duty Officer duties and the sergeants got extra BOS duties. In my day this would not be expected of recruits. They could do better with their bow ties as well.

    I wonder what their RSM thought of their low standard of dress?

    I would expect much more in discipline of uniform dress, that is from far a Military appearance. Sad when you see the arm forces not caring enough about uniforms to take the pride on making sure they are worn correctly, and having all the pieces so they don't have to make believe they are wearing something. Sad and disappointing to see this photograph and worse posted for the world to see. Guess their egos are more important than the traditions associate with their uniforms.

    I am sending this photo to a Major in the RRoS. He came up through the ranks of The Royal Scots.

    That would never had been accepted in my time.
