  6. no worrys i was only the messenger still hop i helped
     
  7. I've seen on television and the internet that on some parades eg. the Sovereigns Parade at RMAS that the entire part of the boot that is showing has been bulled, yet I've always heard that its only the toe and the heel that are bulled. Whats the actual regulation?

    If it was BCH heels, Arch(in case you fainted showed you had clean boots) even though they were trashed before you got onto parade and all round until 4 eyelet as this is were your trousers should have came to
     
  10. personally i do the whole boot, looks so much better as well as showing dedication to turnout.
     

  11. In my day we would call you,
    ARMY BARMY!


    Was a Boy Soldier in 1960´s We bulled all night some times, and now my Bulling finger has rheumatism, can´t even pick my nose now.
    :wink: :wink:
     
  12. thats me!, soon as i leave cadets joining the Artillery
     
  13. My Battery is currently on The Queens Ceremonial Public Duties in central
    London. And believe me when i say the whole boot is Beeswaxed and highly bulled.... :wink:
     
  14. I agree the whole boot is also good for show parades and cadre courses it presents them well. :D
     
  15. just zinc oxide your heels and balls of your feet, and wear a thin sports sock
    then a good loop stitch sock, no probs you can do drill and stand there for hours.... :wink:

    A good bit of foot prep, goes along way believe me... :wink:
