Man at PRI

PRI - President of the Regimental Institute's Fund.

PRI shops are unit gift shops that sell regimental badges, buttons, cufflinks, ties, leisure clothing and equipment such as shirts and fleece jackets etc., as well as presentation items such as decanters, tankards, prints and wall plaques.

The PRI shop is the place where enthusiastic nigs are 'persuaded' to squander their pittance on 'essentials' like regimental PT kit and Stable Belts, and for jaded NCOs to shop for comfy slacks and polo shirts.

Young officers are also to be found browsing through the stock - equipping themselves with the necessaries that are vital for a successful career - and to ingratiate themselves with the RSM and the CO.
