Allow all British Army servicemen to wear a beard

Petition Details

The Royal navy has allowed men to wear trimmed beards for years, the RAF has recently brought in amendments to allow servicemen to grow beards.

Additional Information

With recruitment and retention at an all time low this small change could boost morale and be a demonstration that the army does listen to its soldiers.

It may be in the Government’s interest for recruitment and retention in particular in these current times.

It should also make the Army feel more inclusive of current climate and fashion trends.
