Mystery Military Wife Solved

Now if it wasn’t for a little office talk (thanks Edwin and Joy for scanning skills!) and cyber chatting that rather enigmatic Tender Notice from the Ministry of Defence might have gone unnoticed or certainly may have stayed at the bus stand under a pothole.

The result: a healthy discourse on military semantics:

Alas, the mystery has been resolved by a friendly pen..

“After asking “the people who know” I am informed that this item on the tender is basically a sewing kit provided to soldiers for use in the field it comes complete with needle, thread, buttons etc. From that I suppose we can work out where the name came from.”
