Does anyone know if the Thin Red Line is still in business ?
Thanks

Unfortunately, they are making uniforms & gear no more.

Cheers, Johnnie, 93rd Highlanders.

Keith died about 9 years ago now (as I recall) - his partner kept the business going for a bit but most uniform was made to order. A quantity of his "bridle" leather work found it's way to Sabre sales in Portsmouth and Steve Leggett sells some bits (along with odds and sods from the Four Feathers film props) on fleabay.

What were you looking for - we may be able to source things (or point you in the right direction)

Judy sold off the stock several years ago - there are lots of websites still running that don't exist anymore - and if you venture into Keith's it does redirect you to a link for Victorian clothing. If you want a white puggaree they can be made from ordinary cloth and wound round - not that difficult once you press the folds but a bit of an art form to get the tension right - we use ordinary bandages to make them under the fs helmet covers for the Boer war stuff we do - to give that lump profile - atb Tim
