HC Deb 05 March 1912 vol 35 c185

asked the Under Secretary of State for War why, in view of the fact that the officers of the Guards regiments are allowed to wear turn-down khaki collars when in khaki, the officers in other regiments of the Army are not allowed to do so, and why they are compelled to wear stiff stand-up collars either with or without the addition of a stiff linen collar; and whether he could issue Regulations to the effect that all officers may wear the same kind of collars when in khaki as those worn in the Guards?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Colonel Seely)

The pattern of khaki Service dress for officers is now under consideration.
