MTP and jumpers


#1

Recently I went to an event and the f sgt was wearing a green jumper under his mtp jacket. I was wondering if this is aloud. If it is am I aloud to wear a green jumper under my greens jacket. He said it isn’t in the acp but its acceptable. I would just like to confirm this


#2

If it is under your smock then yes you are allowed to wear a green jumper. 1358c doesn’t mention it but it is no different from wearing a soft shell underneath your jacket or a Norwegian shirt.

You won’t be able to wear just the jumper without your jacket though.


#3

Bottom line; if you’re cold, put a jumper on.


#4

Green woolly pullies are definitely back in vogue at the moment.


#5

Or you could be ally and wear it over your undershirt under your combat shirt.

Oh, and it’s FS. Not F Sgt, F/Sgt, Flt Sgt or anything else you can dream up.


#6

MGS guards wear just jumpers with their MTP


#7

So do Pongos


#8

Another thing for the Uniform zealots to get their knickers (obviously regulation ones) in a twist!!!


#9

Indeed Regimental jumpers with MTP are currently in vogue - the poshest examples being on display at the Royal School of Artillery, with lesser Regiments having their own, probably polyester, variants…


#10

Essentially, yes. If you don’t have the Norgie or buffalo then I’d say pretty much any OG, earthy-brown or similar mid-layer is reasonable to keep you warm.


#11

This has nothing to do with why I recently acquired one…


#12

Blue one!!! Please someone wear a blue one!
8-)))


#13

Yes. A proper blue one obviously, not that awful blu-tac colour…


#14

With a belt on top.


#15

Ref GWH, Regular army wear Jumper with Mtp trousers!


#16

Not sure why anyone would wear the old green jumper, the newer thermal mid-layer is much nicer to wear!


#17

Because it’s all they’ve got?

New Canada Goose jackets are a lot nicer to wear than my old coat but I don’t really got much choice!


#18

I think you will find there is a newer tan coloured jumper for MTP available


#19

Aah, different coloured jumpers, the Zealots blood pressure goes up another few notches!

I wouldn’t care what the cadets wear under their jacket as long as it keeps them warm!!


#20

The green jumpers are ally again.
