Dress

On formal occasions the Lord-Lieutenant wears a military style dark blue uniform, which is based on the dress uniform of an Army officer.

The Vice Lord-Lieutenant and male representative Deputy Lieutenants wear a similar uniform. Those with former military service may opt to wear the uniform of their Service.

There is no formal uniform for female Deputy Lieutenants. Those who have a military background, of appropriate rank, may wear the uniform of their rank and arm of the Service in which they last served.

Deputy Lieutenants carrying out civic duties in civilian dress may wear a Deputy Lieutenant’s badge. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have different badge.  The male and female badges are illustrated.
