    I need hoops.

    Not just any hoops mind, special ones.

    Does anyone have 'spare' flexpoles for the issue hooped bivy ?
    I used to be able to get the buggers made up, but the firm I used has gone to the wall and everywhere else is staffed with utter cnuts.

    So can anyone please blag me a set of poles & I'll cross your palm with alcohol, dosh or fannybatter.

    Cheers,
    Cuts.

    Get over to Bum Ration or Rear Party, there's loads there.

    Buggered if I know, I've not got any.

    Two - hoops that is, not poles. They're sectioned. (As perhaps should I be for answering this lot.)

    Any, but they're normally swartz.

    Nope, ask me one on history.

    Are you a stacker ?

    Soonest.
     
  6. Not a stacker, but do have friends in low places with many a magnetic finger here and there.

    History - Which is the oldest parliamentary democracy in the world? :D
