Historical information

Polyester shirts plus a green tie and epaulets were the only form of dress unform issued to FCV staff. In later years a brown tie was available.
Blue work overalls and safety boots were issued for bushfire work. These were replaced with the now familiar bright green overalls in about 1984.
There were no dress pants, jumpers, jackets or shoes issued.
This led to a long running dispute between the staff association and the Commission over departmental uniform policy at the time.
David Parnaby was a District Forester and accomplished cartoonist who provided insightful and humorous commentary on uniforms through the Victorian State Forester’s Association Newsletter.
