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. Apologies if this has been asked before. Want to break in a "new" 58 pattern belt and get it nice and flexi like my old (falling apart) one. Any suggestions?
  2. Wear it....lots ;)
  3. Piss on it (well it works on boots) :wink:
  4. Give to me, I'll wear it for a while in place of my falling apart one, then I'll give it you back when I'm out in 12 months.

    Failing that, washing machine set to stun (i.e. ferkin hot), with loads of ariel in there and wor lass swears by washing stuff lke that with baby shampoo - I use it on the pads in my bike helmets and it does a great job.........
  5. Ta Batsimm, will try your suggestion, sounds most reasonable.
  6. I'll keep an eye out on the post for me new belt then, or do you mean the second bit....... :eek:
  7. Stop being a tart and just wear the fcuking thing!!!
  8. Beat crow with it!!
  9. Why not get a 2nd hand one of ebay if you're not tough enough to wearing a new one.... whinging mincer or what!
