Sir: I, like Roy Hattersley, remember my first (and only) Burton's suit ('Gone for a Burton', 8 April). Having saved clothing-ration coupons for my 1946 wedding, I acquired a fine, lightweight woollen blanket, which I had dyed and then made into a smart 'going- away' costume at Burton's Palmers Green branch.

No coupons were needed for this transaction which was, I believe, quite legal.

Yours faithfully,


Lower Freystrop, Dyfed
