|http://www.scotland.police.uk/assets/pdf/151934/184779/uniform-and-appearance-standards-police-officers-sop Police Scotland uniform regulations specifying that dress uniform is black.

|Yes indeed! Or even just some sort of uniform / tailoring inspection? As to the Master Tailor, the double-breasted striped suit with homburg hat practically IS their traditional uniform, isn't it...?! ...|

|EUROPE - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA||Why Royal Navy have only one rank for Chief Petty officer ?||(6)|
|The RN hasn't had more than one grade of PO since WWII (POs 1st Class wore officer-style uniform as all POs now do, POs 2nd Class wore seamen's rig). POs 1st Class certainly didn't become CPOs. Throughout most of the RN's history there was only ever one rank of CPO. A rank of Fleet Chief Petty Officer (FCPO) was introduced in 1973 as equivalent to WO1 in the Army and RM and WO in the RAF and wearing the same rank badge. This was renamed WO in the 1980s. The RN only had two ranks of WO between 2004 and 2014. You might be thinking of Charge Chief Petty Officer, which was an appointment, but not a rank, that existed from the 1980s or 1990s until it was replaced with the rank of WO2 in 2004. So no, RN ranks were never brought into line with Army/RAF ranks as you say and chief petty officers have never been equivalent to WOs in the Army and RAF. They're equivalent to staff/flight sergeants and always have been....|

|EUROPE - MILITARY BRANCH & RANK INSIGNIA||"Royal" or "King's Own" title to British units||(2)|
|Also note that when a regiment or corps amalgamates or splits then a royal title is usually retained. For instance, the Royal Logistic Corps was created with the royal title as three of its constituents had it. And the Royal Corps of Signals and REME were almost immediately granted the royal title as they were split from corps that already had the title. This doesn't always pertain through: the Adjutant General's Corps didn't get the royal title although three of its constituents (the Royal Military Police, Royal Army Pay Corps and Royal Army Educational Corps) had it, and neither did The Rifles, although one of its constituents was the Royal Green Jackets....|
