Let's be honest though - a St John person (of either sex) without high vis on does look very similar to a police officer. With high vis, the difference is still minimal.
I was once walking around an Oxford (non-St John) duty with a colleague. I was wearing high vis and carrying the kit, he wasn't and was carrying the torch and radio. We were stopped by security, who said to him "I didn't realise the police had been called officer. Why are you escorting the paramedic?". It was some time before we were capable of answering...
