Well, as I’ve said many times over the years on many topics… If the RAF don’t worry about this stuff, then why do we?
Plenty of examples of the RAF doing likewise, and also of WOs wearing white belts on parade, and ammo boots, and whatever else.
These fora in particular always seem to have a wealth of anti-DI sentiment waiting eagerly in the wings to be spewed forth at any opportunity.
I get it… Some people don’t like DIs because they’ve had a bad experience with some wally once… But actually I don’t think the “problem” is anywhere near as big as this thread (or any of it’s predecessors) makes out.
Drillies seem to be an easy target for the “If that’s the biggest thing you have to worry about…” brigade who conveniently overlook that each cliqué has its own, equivalent, quirks.
