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.
