Good enough wee article, but that "Charlie Parka" effort is an overpriced shanner.

A short piece about the origins of the parka:

Aye well , the history is not that accurate as the M51 was not the first fishtail as the far superior and earlier M1948 was and it was probably designed at least the year before but as you said , nice article . Liked the bit about the Inuit.  I saw one of those seal skin parkas in a museum once. 

Also , l feel very much inclined to agree with the Laird of this parish , with regard to his comments re the Charlie Parka. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
