Order Text

Re: RMMC Uniforms (Corps Directive 05-1110)

As of the date of this Order, by my hand, and by the authority of the Sovereign, Queen of Manticore Elizabeth III, I hereby establish the following uniforms:

Uniforms enhance the experience of belonging to the association by setting the mood and getting people into character. Above all it allows us to be distinguished from everybody else; it helps us stand out from a crowd. With that said the following uniforms for the RMMC are hereby established;

Class A Officers Mess Dress Uniform
This is the civilian equivalent to a tuxedo or suit. This uniform should be worn at formal occasions, such as state dinners, etc...

Description

  1. Shirt: The shirt is a light green turtleneck type.
  2. Trousers: The trousers are dark green and are fairly loose and straight cut to just below the knee, at which point they flare out and are bloused into low-topped space boots. Trousers are untrimmed and seams are picked out in gold piping.
  3. Tunic:
    1. Colonel and above: The tunic is black, double-breasted tunic (which seals up the right side and has relatively long skirts which fall to the upper thigh). The tunic collar is "Prussian" in style-high, round, and tight. The tunic's tailoring is slightly wasp-waisted, and bears thin gold piping up either side of the cross-over front panel. The length of the tunic is such that it is almost frock-coat length. A golden sash is worn over the tunic.
    2. Lt. Colonel and below: The same as above however without the golden sash.
    3. All ranks: The left shoulder of the tunic normally bears the name and hull number of the wearer's current ship (i.e. HMS Fearless, CL-56) in an "upside-down" horseshoe arrangement immediately below the shoulder seam. The right shoulder bears the gold-and-scarlet Manticore badge of the RMN. Collar insignia are worn on the tunic's collar, not the blouse’s, but the same insignia may be worn on an embroidered patch on the left chest of the blouse, immediately above the pocket.
  4. Boots, black: Any military style low-topped boots black in color.
  5. Headgear: Beret, dark green in color. The beret breaks to the right and bears the RMMC Crest, all on a scarlet field-as a flash on the left side of the band.
  6. Medals, ribbons and qualification badges: Medals, ribbons and qualification badges are worn on the left breast of the tunic.
  7. Sword: All officer ranks wear an officer’s sword. Style and type will be determined at a later date:

Tunic: The tunic is black, double-breasted tunic (which seals up the right side and has relatively long skirts which fall to the upper thigh) and bears nine false buttons up either side of the double-breasted flap. The tunic collar is "Prussian" in style-high and round but loose enough for comfort-and the blouse collar is a turtleneck. The tunic's tailoring is slightly wasp-waisted, and bears thin gold piping up either side of the cross-over front panel. The left shoulder of the tunic normally bears the name and hull number of the wearer's current ship (i.e. HMS Fearless, CL-56) in an "upside-down" horseshoe arrangement immediately below the shoulder seam. The right shoulder bears the gold-and-scarlet Manticore badge of the RMN.
