George, (Tuesday's Letters) re your amazement on German police bras having polizei embazoned all over them - the reason is all uniform worn by officers remains the property of the issuing force and must be returned to that force when leaving their employment. Perhaps they feared that these garments would be overlooked. One hopes that these particular items won't be re-issued to anyone else.

In German, a bra is a bustenhalter, which translates back into English as a bust holder. That tends to sum up a copper quite well, on the other hand, so presumably they have to label them to ensure there's no confusion.
Fred, Rotherham
