Red spotted neckerchiefs by Royal Command (nearly!)

Red spotted neckerchiefs by Royal Command (nearly!)

Our red spotted neckerchiefs/handkerchiefs are part of the crew uniform of the members of Clevedon Pilot Gig Club, near Bristol. The Club were invited to row in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames recently - so we were glued to the television trying to spot them in action!

The crews - and their red spotted neckerchiefs/bandanas - are pictured with their gigs Blackbird and Watch and Pray at the 2012 World Pilot Gig Championships at St Mary's on the Isles of Scilly. The club is flourishing and is hoping to acquire a third gig soon.  

We've been delighted to help club secretary Richard James, and appreciate his comment that "It has been a particular pleasure to discover that there is a business such as yours which still works on the basis of good old-fashioned courtesy and service. Long may you reign!" He added: " Membership is continuing to grow apace so I am certain we will be requiring a further order from you in the not too distant future."

It's lovely to see our red spotted handkerchiefs put to a variety of uses, and we wish our friends in Clevedon - proudly wearing our neckerchiefs/bandanas - all the best with their Gig Club.
