The British Army Benevolent Fund are having a warehouse clearance at the moment and amongst other things they are selling the UK Gear PT-03 shoe (pictured in earlier thread) for £30 a pair.




They are also offering -
- Army crested 100% cotton tees at £4 - olive or sand
- Combat gloves £27
- ABF mugs £3

If you need a new pair of trainers the PT-03 price is 51% cheaper than normal. get them while stocks last ! :wink:

Their phone number is 0207 591 2000 and web address is http://www.armybenfund.org/national.htm

(The Army Benevolent Fund is a Registered Charity Number 211645 )

Yup - listen to Gramps here young feller.....when I first come into the Ministry - aye, back in '79 , a cold cruel winter like we had then before this here new-fangled Global Warming ....the first FACKS machine I ever had to do with was on the fourth floor of Adastral House, guarded by a tough moll who worked the machine for you...the drum , about the same size as a washing machine, had to rotate once for every line of text.....dang flibberty-gibbet youngsters with their mobile phones and txting...don't know their born I tell ye....mutter, mumble... 8)

never mind that - get on the blower and order a pair of shoes before they all go.

Just to put this into context, the ABF has just sold 840 quids worth of shoes in about two hours......and the PT03 shoe will be road tested by another 28 seasoned runners.

The power of ARRSE.

Next time you get to hear of a service charity do that could use some extra PR, think about posting a dit on this board .

Remember , when in doubt - get your ARRSE in gear !


Thanks to all.
