Another 2003 prediction comes true:
Daily Record: Our Boys are Boiling, Starving and Begging from the Americans [10-Mar-03]
Scots squaddies are suffering in the Gulf heat because they still haven't got lightweight desert kit… One RAF aircraftman told his dad: "We beg everything from the Yanks. It is embarrassing but needs must. I am one of the lucky ones who has desert clothing. The rest are in normal greens which just cook you in temperatures of 100 degrees plus."
Yes, that's a news story (i.e. yarn) about RAF clothing. I tell you, if this was the sixteenth century, that Farthing woman would be burnt as a witch.
