The Bermuda Regiment yesterday unveiled its new uniforms, being adopted this month for Recruit Camp 2012 .
The new MultiCam uniforms are described as a “short term solution” as the previous British Military uniform, called Combat Soldier ‘95, is being phased out in the UK in favour of a new design, called Multi Terrain Pattern.
A Regiment spokesman said that the Multi Terrain Pattern uniforms will be made available to the Regiment once it has been issued to the UK's operational units, meaning for the first time the Regiment will have a dependable military supply chain, making the cost of the new uniforms 30 percent cheaper than the current uniforms.
“As a stopgap measure while the UK issues their own Service Personnel uniforms, an American company has been selected to provide MultiCam uniforms for the Bermuda Regiment at a reduced cost,” the spokesman said.
“MultiCam uniforms are almost identical to Multi Terrain Pattern and are less expensive, more robust, and easier to produce than the previously purchased Combat Solder ‘95.”
The new MultiCam combat trousers, shirts, jackets, rain suits and jungle hats will be issued later this month.
