I want to buy a ratings beret & badge in London

Hi, ex Wafu here, I left in 1984. I'm looking to buy myself a beret & badge for various parades etc. I live in London, does anyone know where I can get one of the shelf so to speak?

Cheers,

John

Lock's in St James's Street would measure his head on one of those antique conformators and produce a paper pattern of its shape. They would also charge ££££££££ for a beret. Even Herbert Johnson's aren't too bad if you buy online. You get it silk-lined as well, and we all know WAFUS, like Crabs, enjoy the luxurious things in life . . . ;)

They do, though in their defence, I'm told they actually do their own dobying and ironing......but only if needs must....;)

As an ex WU you could try fitting source pans on your head, when one gets stuck, ask the nice fireman to measure it for you, then tell the shop a tadge bigger than that. Simple.
