MK5 Issue Helmet

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by manny8075, May 3, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi fella's and bird's whilst putting a new helmet cover on i accidentally pulled out the black padding at the front, and i cant for the life of me get the thing back in!

    any tips out there?

    Manny x
     
  2. if you needed tape your cover is the wrong size! and will fall off when gets wet or has cam in.

    also are you sure its a mk 5, i have a mk6a :?
     
  3. 1. Yes, don't fcuk about with your kit (at least until you know what you're doing).

    2. Don't recommend that others do the same!
     
  4. 1. You've posted this dullness twice.
    2. Youre a crow and are issuing advice as well as at the same time admiting you've broken your helmet.
    3. You're a bloke but sign off with 'manny x'.


    I conclude you're as daft as a bag of frogs.
     
  5. A. my intentions were not to post it twice
    B. 'Manny x' was an intuitive habit
    C. i apologise for telling others to do the same
    D. I know what i am doing, ive been in a year now and have learnt from many mistakes, however i do admit that i contradicted myself TLF
    E. What is your justification for calling me a crow
    F. So much for a website where you are welcome to friendly advice

    thanks

    P.S i fixed the helmet
     
  6. Good. You fixed it. So learn your lesson and don't fcuk with it; the cover fits nicely without tape or bits of NBC boot, and here's another tip; if you have to use so much force to fit it that the helmet padding comes out, the cover's too small and you should return it for a bigger one.

    This is mostly a friendly website, but when a "newly-qualified" Territorial posts (twice) about having broken something whilst performing an unnecessary and much-derided mod, what do you expect? You're in the Army now, son; grow a thick skin (especially on your head; you'll need it now your helmet's knackered ;) )
     
  7. I accept your criticism

    however, as i said i did not mean to post the topic twice and im on deleting the second post

    nevertheless, i sha'nt fcuk about with kit unless its mine for keepsies, yet i still pick up little habits from more senior and experienced folk than myself, the tape idea being one of them

    just a point
     
  8. ah well no need for the P1954 now is there
     
  9. You must be the only soldier left in the TA with a Mk5 Steel Pisspot.

    Not a happy person having replyed on your other post, only for you to change the fecking subject.
     

  10. A. But you still did.
    B. It's gay for a bloke to put a 'kiss' at the end of his name.
    C. Good. Apology accepted.
    D. Clearly not as you had to post on a website to get a grown ups help.
    E. 23 years.
    F. You've been in a year you say? You'll know it's not the Sally Army then. :roll:

    **** it, this has been plain stupidity on my part

    my helmet on the inside says mark 5 yet it is the olive green kevlar one ergo the 'steel tin' references must be accurate and my perceptions wrong

    and i cant argue with the experience against me here

    therefore, i shall apologise for all mad assumptions and related foolish moments of mine, and hope you find it in your rational capacity to give me assistance in future
     
  12. Well can't fault you for coming back and owning up. Welcome and the moral is if it's not broken - don't break it.
     
  13. steel pee-pots hahaha

    thinking of dropping over france some time soon their kiddo?
     
  14. Are you looking for this in sand:
