UNIFORMS OF THE KENYA ARMED FORCES
Like most organized armed forces in the world, Kenya's military has standardized uniforms worn by its soldiers. Each of the three arms of the Kenya Defence Forces has got its own distinctive set of uniforms that are used in specific situations and which also display the rank and arm of the military to which a soldier belongs to.
Utility uniforms are also known as Working uniforms and are the ones mostly worn by soldiers while performing the day-to-day military duties. They include the camouflaged Army Combat Uniform (ACU), flight suites worn by pilots, hospital and food service uniforms.
Service uniforms are the ceremonial dresses that soldiers wear for formal or the more official functions such as state events, funerals or weddings. A full service dress generally consists of polished black shoes, trouser, a pressed collared shirt and a coat. Some service uniforms can be modified into utility uniforms for certain administrative personnel e.g. Air Force soldiers wear a modified service dress without the coat, as their daily uniform.
Mess dress is also known as the Evening Dress and is a formal uniform that soldiers mostly wear during black-tie events such as formal dinners and parties. The mess dress can be said to have a "suite" like appearance.
Physical Training Uniforms
Physical training uniforms (PT) are a type of Utility uniform but mostly categorized on their own. These are the ones worn during field events such as exercise, jogging, gyming and even physical fitness tests. Mostly consist of tracksuits, shorts or wind pants, a t-shirt and sports shoes.
