What are the smallest (female) clothing sizes on issue?

#1
I'm after some surplus fleece, waterproofs, etc, for Mrs 4(T), in order to equip her for the firing ranges in the UK summer (e.g. mud, lashing rain and wind....). Luckily, Mrs 4(T) is still a small and manageable size, despite her predilection for chocolate fudge cake and English breakfasts.

She has a sniper smock in 160/88, which is still a bit big on her. I've never seen anything listed on eBay in a smaller size, but I'm sure that there must be girls serving who are my wife's size or even smaller. Are there smaller sizes than 160/88 on issue, or do girls simply eat Ginsters until they fit the larger sizes...?

Speak to your local ACF, they some times have smaller kit buckshee that they might be able to loan you for the exercise ( have sizes to fit 12-13 year olds).........had done similar for a friend a few years back. Maybe offer a small donation to their fund would twist their arm.

The cadets get their kit through the system as we all do so whatever the smallest size is ( 160/88 ) that is what they will have.

As Alan P said anything smaller is special measure.

As said there might be kit smaller in the ACF detachment buckshee thats been left by a SMALLER cadet......worth a shout and thats where I got kit from from a very small 13 year old....so unless 4 (T) is married to a dwarf then he should have a chance.

I do think photos would be the best way to clear any confusion :)
