Belt!

#1
I'm on the scrounge for one of the old-style Corps Stable Belts. You know the ones with the metal buckle with badge on?

Getting sick and tired of unbuckling that crap sidel double buckle every time I need to take a dump!! 8O :?

PM me if you have one you'd like to donate to a worthy cause and name your (hopefully sensible) price!

PS: Int Corps belt obviously! - before this thread is hijacked by wannabes! ;)

Funnily enough, I have one of those and I've no need of it. It's in the loft at my folks I think, make me an offer I can't refuse and I'll throw a spare green lanyard in too.

Old style? For some of us, that was the new style.

It's alright people! AF1771 has come to the rescue before you all!

As for the string.. I used to dream of having a uniform.. we had to go to work wearing green sacks for smocks and intsums for shoes etc etc etc...

Of course, this thread does beg the question: How often does Davros dump, that unbuckling his glorious Corps stable belt becomes a chore? I have a personal rule to take my morning constitutional before any stable belt fastening is required and this means that I rarely need to take a second dump during the period in which the stable belt is 'in play'. Indeed, on the occasional morning when my previous evening's intake of beer, curry, kebab, red wine etc etc requires that I make more frequent visits to the facilities, the last thing I want is to hear the sound of a metal belt buckle clanging onto the deck.

Nope, I'm afraid I have my doubts about the dump story: I think he's just trying to look like one of us 'big boys'. :D

There's nothing new under the sun. When the shiny metal buckle version appeared, all the 'new bugs' were trying to get hold of the older, leather side-buckling type (a bit wider and considerably less convenient than the current version). I've still got one of those somewhere in my garage, if anyone wants to look like a really old fücker...

If the "old style belt" is the same as some other Corps stable belts then the buckle can be used quite adequately as a bottle opener. Much more usefull than the leather strapped ones or a 58 pattern belt.

From looking at other posts it appears Davros is on tour. This begs the obvious question, what the fcuk is he wearing a stable-belt for?
I am indeed, and to AF - the 58 pattern belt does just fine - but as soon as I get back I go off to a wonderful place.. where a stable belt will be necessary. Also, considering the number of curry houses in the locale, I think I will be taking more breaks to 'read the intsum' than normal. Hence the desire for a proper buckle. I have heard of folks getting their leather buckles adapted so there's a quick release one underneath, but that sounds arrse. Think to the finish! ;)

As for selling it.. nah.. I'm cursed at that sort of thing. I tried to sell some 'Genuine War Sand', but to no avail.. Got lots of questions about it being walked on by Delta Force and a herd of ninjas and the like though! :roll: :?

Davros,

As you obviously haven't been in the army long enough to have your own big buckled newer old style stable belt, why do you think you'll be entitled/allowed to wear it. They are only supposed to be worn on a wear out basis by those that actually had to wear them when they were part of the uniform. Even then, when you wear an older one you still get the "friendly" chat from the RSM asking why you aren't wearing the new one and really should be setting a better example, etc ,etc........
