Desert slippers - for the use of.

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. I have been asked recently why we only get issued one pair of Dessie Boots?

    I know that most blokes (Like myself) just go an buy another pair, but surely we should get two pairs?

    This is not a bone question and it isn’t a wah either.
     
  2. Not working in the DLO, or anywhere near the RLC chain, or stores or anything, my considered opinion is this....

    CASH, pure and simple. Can't afford to issue 2 pairs.
     
  3. You only have one pair of feet. This is the probable logic employed by the bean counters.

    After all you only have one monocle.
