How do you know they are not entitled to wear the uniforms. Are
you going to stand an MP on the gate and ask everyone for proof
before allowing them into the showground...... of course not.......

But they could still be entitled to wear the uniforms, could they
not ?

I would agree that only those entitled to wear badges of rank and
other such decoratons wear them but it's a simple matter of how
to police it...... Any volenteers I am sure Rex would love to know:-
