at the end of last year i lent my brother inlaw (13 years) my spair issue boots to start the cabets because his mother didnt want him to have the cadet issue boots. i lent my boots to him so he could still go to cabets until his mum got him a pair of his own. i am now trying to move from the TA into the regulars so require my boots back to de-kit and his mother refuses to return my boots. i have been asking for them back since before christmas and have been to the police who say they cant help, and have contacted the captain of his cadet force who tryed to get the boots from him for me only for the mother to wright him a letter saying why he shouldnt give them back. what should i do next??
