Have you tried contacting one of the clothing stores at any of the major Naval Bases (NELSON, DRAKE, etc)? They frequently receive kit back from personnel leaving the service which is often available for re-sale at much reduced rates.

Excuse me if it's not a daft question, but in the name of the Gods would you want a WRNS PO Nos 1 Jacket for on a Sunseeker? Last heard they were not into Pressing sailors [ mind you having encountered some at sea/in the solent they could do with pressing someone who knows a few Colregs!]!

As far as I know, most of the Cash Clothing in Naval Stores at Plymouth/Portsmouth will be closed due to Main Summer Leave (probably until after the Bank Holiday weekend). Good luck though!

If you are near Pompey/Guzz drop it into a naval tailor (Tailor Lee or Jack Blair in Queen Street, opposite HMS Nelson) will do miracles - you'll be pleasantly surprised!
