When I rolled out of bed today, took my shower and pottered around figuring out what to wear I dragged this out of the closet and put it on.
It is my Fleet Air Arm Field Gun Crew sweat shirt which I bought at the Field Gun shop in 1978 when I was serving at HMS Daedalus (aka RNAS Lee-on-Solent). I bought this when I was 18, and fresh out of basic training. It has shrunk a tiny bit, but look at that logo, it looks as fresh as the day I bought it back in 1978. The sweat shirt is 34 years old and I am still wearing it today. I would love to know of other people’s bits of clothing that have stood the test of time as well.
