Reminds me of my basic training. In wet cold weather wearing long johns was hopeless as they soaked up water and never got dry, so we were encouraged to wear ladies tights. I wanted a pair, but, living in a village, wasn't prepared to try buying them in the village shop. So I asked my mother to get them for me. "What size are you after?" says the village gossip, AKA shopkeeper, Without thinking my mother replied, "Oh, big enough to fit Fred!"

Have to say it, wet long johns in cold weather were a very quick way to hypothermia (as well as major chaffing issues to the nether regions) and ladies tights (of the larger ladies) were very common on freezing cold, wet exercise but being blessed with the unlimited resources of the RAF and a very resourceful Cpl storeman, of you which you always looked after, the RAF Fire Service cellular vests and leggings were the preferred kit for some of us on MOB's.

Now then Shaun, as an avid collector of British military uniform kit, do you have anything to tell us further :?
