watching the tennis today and noticed a matelot with a strange rig on.
he had a square rig cap and fore and aft rig shirt and trousers. what was wrong with a proper pussers rig.
is this a new look or something
At 15 when I took my entrance exam I passed for Tiffy as I went to a grammar school and had pretty good results.
However when I saw a Tiffies uniform (I was 15 remember) I went home and told my dad that I had failed so I could wear the square rig.
I loved the lower deck life, but in retrospect wish I had not based my future on a uniform, but it was as Les says second to none in the world.
Now we seem to have less tradition than our colonial cousins. :cry: :cry:
