Don't attach it at all, leave it at home, if you've got an entrenching tool, guess who's gonna be digging all the holes?

Use those two plastic fastex clips on the inside to clip it to the belt, and run a bungee or utility strap through the loop on the back to stop it bouncing. Using it for your waterbottle seems a good idea until you try to get your bottle out and then replace it and fasten the straps without help and without taking your webbing off.

Have you left yours at home? I know at Malta Barracks you have to keep them with you, so why are you telling someone else to leave theirs behind? Are you one of those nice people that get everyone else in trouble? You think because youre on RT 5 that you can bully the people with e-tool problems? Eh?

I never understood the fact that only inf now get issued ETH, other units do not. Surely shrapnel or small arms can kill you no matter which capbadge you are.

As for ETH on webbing, thats the CMSR way to do it, along with messtins and waterbottle either side. But as Bogtejebo said, get more utility/water pouches, 3 of them at the rear if you can. ETH can live in your daysack. At least thats the way our lot do it.
 
Infantry need the Entrenching tool as a meleé weapon - what with our limited ability to fix bayonets in the Section now.

But aye, gaysack it.
