Military allowed to wear a beard.
In the UK employees of the Royal air force (RAF) for the first time in history allowed to grow a beard, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to MigNews.
“This step will promote transparency and will help to expand talent pool and keep our highly qualified personnel”, — stated in the RAF.
It is known that the resolution will come into force on 1 September. It will allow the military to wear a neatly trimmed thick beard.
It should be noted that the representative of the British Ministry of defense stressed that neglected and “thin” beards remain unacceptable.
As for the other British troops, the rules will not change: they still only allowed a mustache.
