At RAFC Cranwell, vintage years ago, the WRAF dress standard for tights / stockings changed from a grotty orangey colour to “Pewter Grey” & if my aged memory is correct, it was effective on 01 Apr.
So, all female student officers were notified to parade by Whittle Hall at lunchtime for an inspection…
…by only male staff, who initially asked for a label check!! Poor girls, their chins dropped!!
Then the inspection was, of course, cancelled.
