NAVY personnel have been reminded about the appro-
priate wearing of disruptive pattern Navy uniform
(DPNU) in public.
Current DPNU policy allows personnel to wear
DPNU in public when conducting routine domestic
duties while travelling to and from their workplace.
This includes collecting children from school,
shopping, buying petrol, and travelling on public trans-
port (excluding commercial air travel).
RADM Tim Barrett said the policy gave person-
nel flexibility and freedom and helped promote Navy
through greater visibility in the community.
While he said the vast majority of personnel were
wearing their uniforms correctly, some personnel had
been reported wearing DPNU at non-sanctioned social
events or functions.
"Currently, the flexibility afforded in the policy has
been taken advantage of by some members who are
wearing the DPNU to pubs and clubs on social occa-
sions," he said.
"This has the potential to undermine the positive
public image of Navy.
"Personnel must take responsibility for upholding
the reputation of our Navy and to wear DPNU ashore
in a manner befitting our service."
DO NOT WEAR DPNU AT:
Clubs or night clubs
Offensive establishments or activities
Race tracks and betting institutions
Public rallies and protests
Any other place or situation that may
