    I can't confirm or deny this but any more than you can. It doesn't hurt to look it up though.

    Look up the Sea Cadet Dress Regulations. CATO 3*-**. Or if you are referring to Navy personnel meaning CF members, CFP-265. The latest mod came out June 2011.

    Google is lovely isn't it?

    They're provided for as an option with mess kit in the dress regs. (Haven't got my copy with me to check the reference.)

    Yes, they are authorized with mess dress, but I'm not sure if that extends to service mess. Although you don't see it often anymore, I wear full Wellingtons myself and you see the occasional person with half Wellingtons.

    Actually the second ones are full wellingtons, the half wellingtons, which are about ankle length are the more commonly used wellingtons with mess kit.

    With all of the snow and rain we got in Ottawa today, the first picture is most practical.

    I know, I'm here on TD and they've got it all; blowing snow, freezing rain, icey streets and huge mud puddles. 'Tis a gross place.

    Do you feel as though you've eaten an apple contrary to orders from someone important?

    It's ok. 2 CMBG, 33 CMBG, local Ottawa cadets, scouts and 4-H members are ready to dig Toronto out again this winter.

    I couldn't help taking this picture of our AFU CO's boots at our Christmas mess dinner.

    Ah yes, I've seen pics of RTR Officers wearing those (possibly after a JNBCR mess 'do').

    How on earth do people wearing spurs not break their necks, walking downstairs, or off pavements en route to the mess. The true origin of the John Wayne waddle!

    ps weather here in Scotland/UK continues to be impossibly snow-free. Bad luck North America...!

    pps read yesterday that 'the tankies' are formally withdrawing from the JCBRNR (nee JNBCR, the UK's joint Royal Armoured Corps/RAF NBCW specialist regt, mounted on Britified Fuchs panzers... so now even less spurs)

    And I got to do that, too. At least I got a snow day out of it.
