Hello All

Just received a brand new pair of ammo boots.

And i would just like to know.

How the heck do i make these shiny shiny

do I mix kiwi parade gloss with beeswax in a mess tin then paint it onto the boot with a brush?

Have you not got real soldiers all around you or did you not pick up enough tips in basic or are you generally forgetful?

You will need; spoon, black kiwi polish, candle, matches, old toothbrush and finally instruction from an old sweat.

Ahh. Just when I thought I couldn't remember why I got out...

In civvy street you can wipe your shoes down with a damp cloth and they call it clean.

OK, we've had request on how to tackle a Bearskin & now how to bull boots.

I'm no Guardsman but I'm pretty sure they don't give you this kit & let you crack on with no guidance.

Are you buying this kit on eBay to wear in front of the mirror at home?

If they're brand new they need burned first, I would find someone who knows what they are doing to do that. If you're near me I'll do one of them for you.

I had a top notch set of Ammo Boots once.

Then they got nicked, and I didnt have any Ammo Boots anymore.
