    I'm assuming its fine, as I had a friend who bought a real army uniform from an army shop and was totally legal

      Nothing illegal about it so long as you aren't impersonating for fraudulent reasons. Social acceptability depends entirely on the circles you move in. If you are Prince Harry, it's OK to walt as a Nazi!

        Re-enactors do it all the time, no problems as long as its done with respect.

          So long that you don't wear medals with it, should be fine. Guy from around here was prosecuted and given a considerable fine (round a grand if I remember rightly) for wearing medals that weren't awarded to him.

            Context. At a fancy dress part no-one expects them to be your medals. At a remembrance parade, they do.
