Engineer Duty Uniform Scotty C

Class C Scotty Uniform

Occasions for Wear:
1. On duty, as prescribed by local commanders.
2. On other appropriate occasions, as desired.
3. The All Weather Work Uniform is intended to be worn to provide the maximum comfort and personal safety for Marines when working outdoors.
4. The All Weather Work uniform is not considered appropriate for Color Guard/Honor Guard duty in most circumstances.

Composition: The All Weather Work Uniform is comprised of the Duty Vest, work trousers, a working shirt, and accessories and accoutrement as authorized below.

Vest: The Duty Vest is a black, roughly hip length vest with a squared off hem and a front closure, roughly similar to those worn by Starfleet personnel in the late 23rd century. The duty vest shall be of generally solid construction (i.e. not primarily composed of a mesh fabric) and may include useful pockets.

Due to local supply situations, the details of the appearance of the duty vest may vary from unit to unit, but all members of the same unit should endeavor to wear similar if not identical vests. The details of insignia and accoutrement worn on the duty vest are described in the uniform descriptions referencing the vest.

Work Trousers: The work trousers are black, of suitable sturdiness for the job at hand. Trousers may be BDU or Cargo style in order to provide more useful pockets, Short trousers may be authorized by local commanders where conditions warrant.

Work Shirt: The shirt may be any shirt of neat, clean appearance appropriate for the weather. This includes, but is not limited to T-shirts, polos, long or short sleeved working shirts, etc. Every effort should be made for all members of a unit to wear the same shirt to present a uniform appearance, but individual Marines should not feel compelled to wear a shirt that may present them with safety risks in the interests of uniform appearance.

Belt: The black web belt is worn with the trousers, under the vest. A black pistol belt may be worn with the uniform to hold potentially useful items too large to conveniently fit in any pocket such as a canteen, large flashlight, individual first aid kit, tools, etc.

Headgear: Either the black eight-point cover, the black beret, or Black ball cap with SFMC, BDE or Unit patch affixed may be worn. The headgear worn should be appropriate to weather conditions.

Footwear: Any black or dark footwear in good repair and neat condition appropriate to the weather and type of work being performed may be worn. Trousers may be worn bloused or unbloused with boots.

Insignia & Accoutrement: Only the following items are authorized for wear.

Insignia of Grade – Because of the possible variation in shirts, rank insignia are worn centered on the right breast pocket flap of the Duty Vest, centered on the pocket if no flap exists, or in an equivalent location if no such pocket exists. The rank insignia may be either standard metal pins or embroidered cloth insignia of the same size.

SFMC Insignia (Collar Brass) – Worn centered on the left breast pocket flap of the Duty Vest or equivalent location only if neither the optional SFMC patch nor SFMC tape is worn.

SFMC Patch – If worn, is worn centered on the right breast pocket. A patch for the aircraft flown by the pilot may be worn in this position.

Brigade Patch – At the discretion of local commanders, a BDE patch may be worn prominently on the right side of the Duty Vest. Due to the possible variations of the Duty Vest, no exact location for this patch can be specified, other than it should be at least W inch below the rank insignia. All members of a unit should wear the BDE patch in an equivalent location.

Nametape – As an option, a name tape exactly as called out for the Class C BDUs may be worn above the right breast pocket of the Duty Vest. If no such pocket exists, the name tape is worn above and centered on the rank insignia. If the name tape is worn, the SFMC tape must also be worn.

SFMC Tape – As option, the same SFMC tape called out for the Class D Utility uniform may be worn in an equivalent location on the left side of the Duty Vest.

Branch Devices (Type A Insignia) – If the wearer is entitled to wear distinctive items (such as Aviator wings), they may wear a single embroidered device insignia stitched 1/2 inch above and centered on the SFMC tape (if worn) or in an equivalent location on the Duty Vest.

Special note: it is permissible for all the cloth insignia and accoutrement listed above be attached with a hook and loop faster (i.e. Velcro) to the Duty Vest to allow the same vest to be used for both the All Weather Work Uniform and Service Undress Uniform, provided the vest is kept clean and in good repair.

The entire purpose of this uniform is to allow some uniformity of appearance for units participating in operations potentially hazardous to more expensive, less robust attire. Effort should be made among the members of such units to be as closely matching as possible given the circumstances. It should be noted, however, that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL UNIFORM APPEARANCE OVERRIDE THE SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS OF
MARINES!! Our members are our most important asset and must be treated with care and respect for their safety and comfort.
