I joined the MCL a few months ago and volenteered to do color guard. Of course I then attempted to put on my charlie shirt and the trousers from my blues. Well the trousers I could not get over my butt and the shirt I could not button. So I went to ebay and found both of under $40. with shipping. I need to add the blood strip to my trousers but I am not sure excately where it is placed on the trousers. Any help is really appreciated.

I don't know the specifics since I had the tailors do it but I do know they sit pretty much even with the front "flap" of your pockets.

Can't help you out with the placement of the blood stripe on your trousers.....but, my brother who's a Sr.Vice Commandant in the MCL, doesn't wear his Charlie blouse, and neither do any of the other officers or MCL members. They wear a white shirt with all of the necessary ribbons, badges, and patches.
My brother is the 3rd one in from the left, standing next to they guy with the ribbon around his neck.

This is a recent pic of some of our MCL members from our Memorial Day parade.

Alterations Manual (TM-10120-15/1), which requires that the stripe finish at or in the waist seam. However, stripes that were previously sewn so that the top of the stripe was finished over the top of the waistband are authorized for wear until such time as the trousers/stripes require replacement. Blue dress stripes will be made of Marine Corps standard scarlet cloth and will be sewn with red silk thread.

Yes, I know that, and I thought I made a post with the correction. The order went into affect Aug 7, 2009 and at the time of my previous post, dated July 3, 2009, they were allowed.

And you may want to fill out all of your profile so that the Marines here know who they are talking to.

. I need to add the blood strip to my trousers but I am not sure excately where it is placed on the trousers. Any help is really appreciated.

Getting back to the original question.

It runs from the bottom of the waist band along the edge of the pocket following the trousers seam and is turned (hemmed up) under the leg opening.

Hope that clears its up, thats the best I can explain it. :marine:

Doc I've been living with a squid for 17 years and have yet to see her wearing a uniform containing a blood stripe.

You're right, Robert!! It's been so long, I thought Squids had a red stripe on their shoulder, for being at sea.....DUH!! That's what happens when your memory gets fried with today's prescription meds!!!
