On the 23rd April 2015, a focus group which consisted of RAF Officials debated a variety of issues and ideas concerning RAF Dress Regs per AP1358.
I stumbled across this and found the following:
“The use of canes by ATC WOs was also reviewed and the the SG [Steering/Focus Group] agreed that only one appointment, that of the Commandant Air Cadets WO, would be permitted to carry a cane during their tenure”.
Does anyone know what came of this on our end?
It may be useful to know that the support group consisted of the following:
Gp Capt A4 Ops Plans
OC Spt RAF Halton
SO1 A4 Log Spa
AIR A4 Clothing & Gen Stores SO2
COS Pers Pol D&I
AIR A4 Clothing & Gen Stores Cer & Pol
This can be found on a .gov website as part of official minutes.
