A proper parang - like old chris ryan and ray mears use- not the issued tree beater.

Use the issue one, its the _bollocks_

the old style gollock has been replaced


Your J4/QM chain will be able to get hold of em,


That is, If you have a J4/QM chain.............. :)

Hang on, five minutes ago you needed a down jacket, now you need a jungle treebeater. You must have really poor circulation. 8O

No, needs a down jacket and parang as off to an Arctic Jungle training area with SF. So tip top secret not even on google earth.

Has to buy own kit as he is so 'deep cover' that SQ not allowed to know his Regimental Number. Although if SQ were to check his socks, real name sewn into them by his Mum as she is concerned 41 F might get bullied by bigger boys in the arctic trees.

Also needs underwater parachute and down filled jungle hat if anyone can help.

The RQMS at 49 Para is normally quite helpful with this sort of stuff. :wink:
