Have a couple of great coats absolutely ideal for terrible Scottish winters, one was my own issued by the RAF ATC that I got to keep as they were doing away with the uniform issue in the 80s /90s. And another is civil defence so non military. Sad thing is of late I've been hesitant to wear them as I recieved the usual snobbish attitude from some older folk of 'what gives me the right to wear that' it has no rank on it and just states Air Training Corps. Other than the fact I did volunteer with them for year's, it's a bloody excellent coat for hideous damp Scottish winters, felt like saying as a tax payer that pays for this kit for the MOD in general I've got every right. I can understand if it had a rank on it, or medals or some other military insignia, but it's plain minus one badge on the left arm. Is there some sort of rules I'm not aware of when using it as civilian attire? I'm not dressing up in johdpurs and goggles and being Walter mitty, I'm wearing it with boots jeans and a scarf and beanie hat. Maybe I've insulted a touchy ex ATC vet... that's fought many a battle in Chipmunks and gliders or polished boots and plaques in anger until his fingers blead like I did..
