Devils without skirts
Soldiers in Scotland's new "super regiment" have to share kilts because of a shortage of the ceremonial dress.
The Royal Regiment of Scotland has 5,000 soldiers but just 320 kilts, just one for every 15 men.
The kilts are worn during ceremonial or public duties.
The shortage comes after the Army decided to end its 150-year association with Borders-based kilt makers Robert Noble, which has produced military tartan since 1850.
The Army has put to tender a £1 million contract for the new kilts. It has received 320 "trial" kilts but will not receive a full set until 2008.
When you can't even dress the men then you know defence spending is a disgrace!
This fetching Camo pattern kilt is available from The Kilt Store for £145 and a matching sporran is yours for £65, a total of £200; which is what the MoD is paying per kilt, delivery in 4-6 weeks, not 18 months.....
