Hi Clanline. I managed to get Clan epaulets but couldn't source braid for jacket, I am up in Shetland so no nearby outfitters! I visited one of the Strath vessels in Mombasa in my whites, I was standing at the bar when the Chief came in, when asked by the chap behind the bar what he wanted he said "its ok, I will get myself once the lieutenant here (me) gets out of my way!" P and O just had MN braid of course.
Two (Brian & Ian)live in Australia and Bill lives in the Lake district and works in Egypt, big wig in the gas industry. They are coming over for our cousin's daughter's wedding in Devon in a few months.
