Desert wellies

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. Mine have finally kicked off and want to get some new ones - funny old thing shops over in USA don't have 'em.

    Anyhoo - some of them that Airborne chaps wouldn't leave the lines without in the 80's.

    I tried DuBora, but got nowhere.

    Any leads gratefully received.


  2. I think the new dezzie is the hi-tec trail, or something similar. I haven't seen them in years. \oh the things we did to them and in them. My enduring memory is knocking off a young lady at the Reeperbahn in Hamburg but insisting I kept them on.

    The last I saw of my trusty boots was when they were tied behind the staff car after I got married. Bonking was never the same.
  3. TIMPSONS-£12.50
  4. Stead and Simpson - £20

    Mine lasted longer than the issue ones I gave to Ghostywhyte. But then someone nicked the laces!!!!
  5. I'm assuming that you mean the old ghillie boot style dezzies. They are still available for under £20.00 from HM Supplies in Aldershot and Camberley.
  6. This is what I'm after:


    Stead & Simpson? 3rd largest shoe retailer in UK? Annual salees of £140M?

    And no shaggin' website?


    Anyway - If anyone finds a pair of these - size 9, I'll gladly reimburse cost + post + three or so pints.
  7. I want a pair as well...... how many days were spent drinking pints out of them :)
