Commanders have advised troops not to wear uniform travelling to and from work or outside bases following the brutal killing of a member of the military close to Woolwich barracks.
Defence sources said the order had been given that uniform should not be worn by those travelling alone, or on public transport as a "common sense precaution" immediately after the killing.

Rather than the presence of uniformed soldiers being treated as a preventive against jihadist violence, it is now understood to be a provocation.
This is what happens to a state that is UNDER OCCUPATION. The jihadists can wear their "uniforms" without any prohibition - full Shariah compliant physical appearance, and socially enforced hijabs for the women - and can impose their force without sanction against their community at large. But the occupied state's domestic police and military are now even more limited in what they can do.
I totally agree that this is akin to being under occupation. Maybe non-Muslims should avoid going outside of their homes.
Muslim scum just doing what the liberals wish they had the nerve to do.
The Brits are insane.
Soldiers should be able move about freely, in uniform, with firearms at the ready.
Common sense would be to issue hand guns to the soldiers, not slink away into civilian clothes.
Bizarre how the first cops on the scene were unarmed and had to wait for “special” armed officers to arrive. Unreal!
So bow down and do the bidding of the headchoppers.
In a sane world, all the headchoppers would be kicked out. in the current insane world, the innocent people bow down and kiss headchopper a$$.
Cowering in submission -dhimmitude. The Muslims should be cowering in fear of having their heads mounted on pikes; instead the police are deployed to prevent alleged anti-Muslim reprisals.
Woolwich attack: troops advised to be fully armed outside bases.
Why not? Are they sissy afraid to shoot these bastards while wearing the uniform of their country?
I would make sure they go off base with at least one fully armed uniformed buddy, and kill these bastards if approached. Yee Gads! When will this end?
Disgusting. Disgraceful surrender to the muzzies.
In 1982 a West German colonel told me he wore civvies while driving to the local Bundeswehr base & then changed into his uniform. Greens & other radicals would hurl rocks at his car otherwise.
This in a country where the Polizei are armed & carry submachine guns in their car trunks.
They should wear their uniforms and sidearms. Don’t these people realize that every time they give in a little, it’s a victory for those who hate them?
They didn’t act this crazy when the IRA was setting off bombs every week.
Every patriotic Brit refusing to take a dhimmi stance ought to don a uniform and march onto Downing Street demanding this administration quit sharia appeasement in all it’s forms.
All Muslims should be provided with one-way air transport back to the ME. Landing rights will not be necessary. They will be deposited on the country of their choice from 5,000 feet AGL.
That is the key point. Soldiers should be required to be armed, and they should be free to wear the uniform or not at their discretion, or perhaps encouraged to wear it. When some sixth century moron with a knife is looking for an easy target, he should be afraid to go after a British or American soldier with a gun, instead of giggling over the fact that soldiers are hiding from him. The strategy of hide and cringe reminds me of a mailman dealing with a barking dog - the more times the dog barks and the mailman acts afraid, the more aggressive the dog gets. We need a better strategy than cowering in fear.
Membership in the UKIP will explode after this outrageous incident. Had this happened two weeks ago, they would be in charge of the government there.
Yeah, when did the Brits become French?
“The Brits are insane.”
No, Churchill is dead, and the Brits are a much lesser breed...especially the men. The woman who stepped off the bus to confront the Muslim murderers and the woman police officer who shot them are the new face of British resistance to evil. The men have surrendered.
“Soldiers should be able move about freely, in uniform, with firearms at the ready.”
They’ve issued a cowardly Stand-Down order.
