No 1 Dress

At ebay! Got my Officer kit there, bought No1 Dress jacket there and managed to sell my SNCO set too boot - so long as you can be patient and wait a while!

Might I suggest you hire it?

You can do this for about £30 and I personally use a company called Hodges and Co, Richmond Road, Catterick Garrison - 01748 832288. You might need to provide certain accoutrements like shoulder titles or buttons, yet again they may stock them. I have heard that in some instances he disposes of stuff that might no longer be Grade A standard so you could always try that approach.

Good Luck

I have a tailor made set of Corps No1's worn only once, but on the premise that the wife isn't going to sell her wedding dress.....shame really we could have come to some arrangement.

On the subject-there is a story which, may or may not be true (but knowing the individual concerned it probably is)

Newly appointed Corps RSM is in office with young subby who has disgraced the uniform to such an extent that resignation is the only course possible. "What can you do for me RSM?" sobs the subby"Well, Sir we are about the same size so I'll buy your Service Dress off you!"

They are very helpful people, been in business for years - are you Catterick based or are they going to post them to you elsewhere?

If its any help, the military tailor at Tidworth Camp hires out blues jackets, belts, white gloves etc. very reasonable and excellent service.
