Recently we had a young guy show up to a game in cadpat, with regimental rank (MCpl Engineer), a replica CF Tacvest and helmet. Visually indistinguishable from someone walking around in garrison. He had no idea why this was not okay.
It costs nothing to be respectful.
Is it a problem because he looked like CF, or just because he looked like military personnel?
If he was in full replica IDF, for example, would it have been as much of a problem?
