What are peoples thoughts on this, will H.M authorise one and if so what do you think the qualifying criteria will be?

Gimme, gimme.

Should be presented to everybody still serving who can produce their issued puttees, Boots DMS, KF shirt, lightweights and 58 Pattern webbing (to be worn for the presentation).

If it's your cadet issue does that count?

Not forgetting the metal 'turtle' combat helmet. Could be worn on the medal parade without the spider inside so the metal spike digs into the top of your head. Could also jump up and down at the same time - I am still scarred after 20 years!

Oh yes, recipients will also need to be wearing their Chines Fighting Suit and 'crisp packet' waterproofs!

Refreshments should include toothpaste style jam, condensed milk and biscuits hard, very hard! Co-ordination will be achieved using A41 Larkspur radios of course.

58 pattern webbing to be wet of course, Oh and it needs to have elastics sewn all over it. No Bergens, large (guffaw) packs only.

Don't forget "With digging tool attached" making sitting down impossible. 44 pattern steel bone dome with hessian scrimm (Wet and smelly) and added discomfort of 58 pattern fart sack attached to large pack....

.....and a cap comforter.

I never did work out which cap needed comforting because I was never issued a cap.

Does anyone know whether they still issue two pairs of Stanley Matthews shorts in phase 1?
