Territorial Army: Military Decorations

Volume 470: debated on Monday 7 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 27 November 2007, Official Report, column 314W, on Territorial Army: military decorations, what guidance he has issued to regional commanders on exercising their discretion to allow members of the Territorial Army to wear medals on Combat Soldier 95 working dress at Remembrance Parades and on other ceremonial occasions. (175429)

Guidance on dress is given in Army Dress Regulations, which are widely available. These allow regional commanders to authorise the wear of medals for specific parades on combat dress. No additional guidance is necessary.

It remains the Army's intention that parade uniform (number 1 or number 2 dress) be worn for most scheduled public events. Number 2 dress is available to the TA for specific parades, and remains the uniform for general wear on Remembrance day.
