Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Biscuits_Brown, May 12, 2010.

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. Or nails, or hobs or whatever they're called.

    Anyone got a notion where I could buy some?
  2. Yes, chaps I did try all of the City ones. The majority of whom said "eh?"

    Did find one place that had a pricely total of 4 and no idea where he could get more.
  3. Thanks chaps... But I really need 'em in hand today. I've a feeling I'm not going to win this one.
  4. Depot Royal Irish? Try the QM.
  5. There is a cobbler over in holywood, he had the contract when the BW were there and needed their brogues doing.
  6. Queensman - They are, I fear for a little recreational walting.

    Cheers KOR, will try and find him!
  7. So, BB, did you go for thumb tacks in the end or what? :wink:
  8. Yeah! Go on - how did you get on?

    And, I have to ask: What is 'recreational walting'? Do you dress up in Ammo Boots in your off duty hours?
  9. Some cadet will no doubt post a thread on this 'attrocity' shortly...

    Walting with ...studs...?!!!!! Anybody trying to prove their mettle as a valid and authenticated arrser will be frothing at the mouth now!!!

    What sort of walting?

    If british then flat studs for protecting the leather soles of yer ammo boots, pointy for units operating in mountainous country and drivers shall remain un-studded. Early war as many studs as you can reasonably fit on the sole reducing to the 13 for economy reason by mid-war period.
