Does anyone else keep a razor blade, a compass, two snares and zip ties under the insole of their boots?

I find the razor blade very useful for cutting, the compass for moving around, snares are for trapping rabbits and the zip ties are useful if you are captured and they take your boot laces off of you, you can zip tie your boots on.

What about a 'Johnny Seven' Cadet Boot with hidden compartments in the heels?

To play devil's advocate for a second...5.56mm might ask some bone questions but he is, after all, only a kid and at least he is showing a bit of motivation and enthusiasm (in direct contrast to most of his generation). Pillioring adult walts is a sport to be savoured but don't you think going to town on a kid is taking it a bit far? Especially as he obviously doesn't get the joke...

It's been done - remember Clarks Commandos?

To be fair he has been given multiple blatent warnings before the serious stuff


As for bootlaces I use those liquorice whip ones so that if Im on e&e I have both a food source and a drinking tube (if you bite both the ends off) so I can drink the chocolate milkshake I have crammed up my hole...

army boots along the lines of those teen targeted trainers with a wheel built into the heel.

An entire company could be towed along a decent road by a single truck.
An british infantry charge downhill could be a sight to see.

Hmmmm.... As would one uphill...

You have a good point for the French and Italian armies, though. If they had wheels fitted with a ratchet, it would stop them going backwards.

What sort of knot d'you tie your bootlaces with? I use a sheep shank myself.

You'd make a mint selling mod kits reversing the ratchet - backwards, but not forwards
