    Does anyone know where I can get a Royal Irish Caubeen? I've tried fleabay and I've tried various tailors and kit suppliers but no joy.

  4. Try PRI of 1 RIR or their TA COY in the London Rgt.

  10. Ah yes, he was a classic - ist!

    What a puzzling individual he turned out to be. If only some of our retired generals could be a sweet, educated and cultured not to mention as lethal shooting game! No names, no pack-drill but the two star who shot in the same side as me last year was unfit to hold, carry or clean - let alone fire - a gun.
