    Dear ARRSERS,
    I have recently invested in some issue gaiters and when they were delivered i decided to try them on. Unfortunatley when it came to the rubber underfoot strapping i became a little confused but i figgured it out but the straps and wire are far to long for my leg and appear to be useless. So apoligies for the bone question but what should i do or how can i sort it? :oops: :?

    Thanks LCPL_BULL

    The wire wraps under the boots and the straps do up over the arch of the boot

    Why did you invest in them? Shares in Remploy? Make sure that the bukles are on the outside edge of each boot!

    Try applying for a commission preferably in a not too technical arm and one where spelling and grammar are not important
