@Peacoat: Thank you Sir. I am really ‘chuffed’ as we Brits say and honoured (as we spell the word) by your comment. The only thing I would partially dispute is that the WP is an arcane piece of clothing. It has survived since WW2 and is still going strong. … To be honest I had been starting to become a bit disillusioned with the way FL is going. Your words have encouraged me to hang in there and keep going. You’ve also made a stiff upper lip British chap blush with pride.@Ticklishchap You started this thread about a relatively arcane piece of clothing back in 2010. It has now grown to 12 years and 78 pages. Congratulations.
I am surprised the Marines ever got this sweater. Anything that is worth 2 cents is hoarded by the Navy until its supply rooms are overflowing. Then, and only then is the Marine Corps given a dribble.
