  AUSTRALIAN ARMY CADETS DRESS POLICY Part 1 INTRODUCTION 2 WEARING OF UNIFORM 3 ITEMS OF DRESS AND DRESS EMBELISHMENTS 4 ORDERS OF DRESS 5 REGISTER OF SPECIAL-TO-UNIT VARIATIONS AAC Dress Policy – 18 Mar 11  PART ONE INTRODUCTION General 1.1.   Although the AAC is not part of the Army, it is often recognised as such. It is important therefore that the AAC maintain uniforms and appearance of a high standard so as not to cause disrepute to the AAC or the Army. Aim 1.2.   The purpose of AAC Dress Policy is to standardise the wearing of dress and embellishments in the AAC. AAC Dress Policy applies to all members of the AAC, both cadets and ACS. 1.3.   While Army Standing Orders for Dress (ASOD) provide the over-arching policy on the wearing of military uniform, AAC Dress Policy provide clarification and guidance on the wearing of items of dress and embellishments peculiar to the AAC and are the authority for variations to the practice in ASOD. Interpretation of ASOD and AAC Dress Policy 1.4.   Where Tables used in ASOD list more than one type of item of dress (e.g. headdress) to  be worn with a particular order of dress, a unit commander may specify which item is to be worn for a particular duty or parade. Further, a commander may specify that a particular item of uniform will be worn with the appropriate order of dress (e.g. sweaters with Barracks Dress). 1.5.   Unless otherwise stated, orders of dress apply to both female and male members. 1.6.   Where there is a conflict between this policy and ASOD in terms of what items a member of the AAC should wear then this policy takes precedence. If the conflict is in relation to how an item should be worn or personal grooming, ASOD takes precedence. Authority to Wear AAC Uniform 1.7.   The wearing of uniform by members of the AAC is restricted to approved activities and whilst travelling to and from those activities. The wearing of uniform on all other occasions requires specific approval by, at a minimum, an ACU OC, or in the case of overseas activities, HQ AAC. Entitlement to Uniform and Equipment 1.8.   Entitlements for the issue of uniform and equipment to Cadets and ACS are found in the following Army Block Scales: a.   All AAC members: Block Scale 3004/02 - Clothing and Necessaries Australian Army Cadets.  b.   All AAC members: Block Scale 12/06 - Training, Bivouac and Camp Accommodation Stores – Australian Army Cadets. c.   Full-Time ACS only: Block Scale 3002/20 - Initial Issue Clothing, Necessaries and Embellishments – Australian Army. AAC Dress Policy – 18 Mar 11  d.   Full-Time ACS only: Block Scale 3004/10 - Combat Field Clothing and Individual Equipment – Australian Army. 1.9.   Other items may be worn by AAC members when: a.   the item is approved in this policy for wearing by AAC members, and  b.   the relevant Army Block Scale states that the item is available for purchase by AAC members. Special-To-Unit Variations to AAC Standing Orders for Dress 1.10.   A proposal to introduce or vary any embellishment or item of dress is to follow the format contained at ASOD and is to be forwarded through the AAC chain of command to HQ AAC for consideration by COMD AAC. 1.11.   Special-to-unit variations to dress and embellishments are not provided at public expense and are to be purchased and maintained by the unit. Submissions are therefore to include  justification for the variation and include an indication of how the unit will meet the cost of  provision and maintenance. 1.12.   The submission of an application for approval to wear special-to-unit items of dress or embellishments and the forwarding of that submission from a regional AAC HQ to HQ AAC does not constitute approval to wear those items. 1.13.   Authorised special-to-unit variations to items and orders of dress and the terms of their wear are determined between HQ AAC and the unit on a case by case basis. The grant of approval for a special-to-unit variation to one unit must not be considered as a precedent for approval to any other unit. 1.14.   Approved special-to-unit variations to specified orders of dress or embellishments are detailed in Part 5 of this policy. Mixed Dress 1.15.   AAC uniform is to be worn only in accordance with AAC Dress Policy. The mixing of orders of dress or mixing military and civilian clothing, with the exception of physical training dress, is not permitted. Items of clothing or equipment, which are not of approved design, material, or entitlement, are not to be worn as part of AAC uniform in public places. AAC Dress Policy – 18 Mar 11  PART TWO WEARING OF UNIFORM General 2.1.   This part provides references for the occasions when uniform is worn, appearance aspects, items of dress, and dress embellishments. Occasions 2.2.   Details of the appropriate uniform to wear on various occasions is contained in ASOD. 2.3.   Members of the AAC will wear only those orders of dress allowed for in this policy. 2.4.   Retired, resigned and terminated members of the AAC are not to wear AAC uniform and embellishments on any occasion. Appearance 2.5.   The standard of personal dress, appearance and grooming maintained by all member of the AAC is to be in accordance with ASOD. Maintenance of this standard will reflect credit on the individual, the AAC and the ADF, as a whole. Items of Dress and Dress Embellishments 2.6.   Details of items of dress and dress embellishments peculiar to the AAC are contained in Part 3 of this AAC Dress Policy. 2.7.   The wearing or use of particular items of dress which apply to all ranks of the AAC are contained in ASOD.
