    I was reading through another forum, looking for this sort of coat, and lots of people were also saying "change the buttons! change the buttons!"

    Apparently, it offends people of a certain group, if a civilian wears a military coat with military buttons. They believe that you are undeserving to wear that coat, for whatever reason.

    Personally, I have a few choice words for people of this flavour, not to be uttered in mixed company. My grandfather served in WWII, and if that means I do not "deserve" to wear his things, then sod all, I don't care what they think. Being a huge fan of military surplus, I can say with absolute confidence that if I own the coat, NOBODY should tell me how I should wear it, and it bothers me to no end when people do.

    So right on, man. Don't change a thing.

    I loved that McIlwraith story at the time and this bit brought back some funny memories. Its never ceased to amaze me what some people will do or try when it comes to the armed forces.

    I remember a while back some guys gatecrashing the 'Summer Ball' all dressed up until it was decided that no one actually knew them. The civvy police were called but I dont think anything actually happened to them.

    As for the Great Coat, then yes, if they are the Kings buttons, then if you were in the RAF then you would have to get them changed. Since your not, I wouldnt bother. They arent issue any more anyways unless its a ceremonial one.

    Once upon a time they would cut the buttons and insignia off uniforms being sold as surplus, precisely because of the 1895 Act. But that hasn't been done for many, many years and the RAF sells off surplus uniform all the time with all buttons and insignia still attached... Something for which I am eternally grateful, as after RAF-issue raincoats were declared obsolete ten years ago, I would shiver in my No.1s every Remembrance Sunday until I was able to buy myself a nice surplus greatcoat, complete with buttons

    Just wanted to know if 24 mm brass buttons would be ok (similar) to the photos posted for my RAF greatcoat. Also, anyone have an idea where I can secure the camapign ribbons for my Service Dress uniform?

    Cheers!
