Sorry not convinced. I don’t allow it, not because the rules say you can’t, but because in the social media / online silliness some pedant somewhere would see it and get far too excited, and start sending tedious emails, copied in to all and sundry, which always get deleted without being read fully.
Like cadets wearing gauntlets carrying a standard became a no no. Lord knows why. We never did rifle drill years ago with gloves on as it was bloody dangerous. Who ever thought doing drill movements with a shiny wooden pole, weighted with a flag wearing something like cotton gloves was a good idea, needs some help. But again to avoid the BS we comply. If social media / online reporting or photo sharing didn’t exist there are a lot of things I would do.
Thing is if it happens and no one gets hurt in the process, is it a problem? Who is going to get hurt if a cadet wears N’1s and or gauntlets?
