Spotted on Ebay..

For years I have been irritated by the apparent inability to issue appropriate kit to the appropriate user. For example, how often have you seen phots of the "Queen's Own Highland Deserters" carrying the latest in weaponry or the "24th Foot and Mouth" sporting the best all-terrain-all-climate boots ever to be worn by a gate sentry in BAOR?
Just once I pray, just once let me see sense prevail and be ordered to the QMs to sign for something truly useful, and then......at last...check this out:

Surely the RM Maternity Dress was only issued to CQMS and MT SNCOs as 'Shirt RM/RAF Stone Grey, XXXXXXL' to help ease their Ginsters induced shame.
Got to say though that any bird would just love wearing that, would go well with the Ron Hills and white stilettos . Rather than delving into hubbys Laura Ashley collection.

As this eBay sometimes has items for sale which are not really suitable for your Chaplain to see ,i wonder if one of you would be so kind as to check out any clerical wear that they may have ?

Father, you might like to visit both these places, the first for advice the second for its interesting, colourful and unbiblical (mixed fibre) vestments. Please remember it's an abomination (praise be to G_d) to wear clothing of two different cloths.

thank you Steve ,this is interesting

"Capes/Copes/Humeral Veils (51")

Now I know that batman wears a cape, and Jeff Copes very well with the heavy stuff,but what the clerical fcuk is a Humeral veil ? This we have to check out, it may well be the kinkiest bit of kit ever worn by a Royal yet.
