bolt cutters on his toes and he should fit a size 12
You could always phone the IPT and get them to advise. They should have a line item in the boots Contract for one off sizes (big and small).

We had to have a set of 2's specially made for one of our 'bigger' lads.
FFS - I hate to admit it - Tiffy is right. Your Q world should have contacts through higher cmd to the IPT and the DCTA. There ARE conrtacts for those guys to get kit - I've had to get stuff before. The system is there for them too.
Not sure if it's any use to you, but at a push Alt-Berg might be able to sort out some size 16's. Can't see it being cheap mind - but they do make quality kit!
