Collar curveball


sir – Many years ago, when I was a senior non-commission­ed officer in the Royal Navy, I wore collar-detached shirts and stiff paper collars. The Windsor knot (Letters, March 2) was essential, as it sat centrally on the protruding collar stud.

I did discover that these accessorie­s had a significan­t drawback, however, when I was caught in a downpour on an airfield one day and my collar disintegra­ted.
