How many different types of army boots have you worn?

#1
I was thinking about this the other day and came up with the following worn from 1969 to 1994 (ACF & TA). In order:

As a cadet:-

Ammo Boot (£1-14s-11d) from Cohen's Surplus Store in Tottenham)
'Commando' Boot (with the screw on sole)
Cadet 'Ranger' Boot? (had a integral leather gaiter with two buckles)

and then into the TA:-

DMS Boot
NI Urban Patrol Boot
US Jungle Boot
Boot Combat High (1st Version)
Boots Combat High (2nd Version)
Assault Boot (1st Version)
Assault Boot (2nd Version with speed lacing)
Magnum Boots
and finally a pair of George Boots

So how many have you worn?

Ammo Boots with the hand-hammered in studs on the soles
Boots DMS (Dem's My Shoes)

That's about it ...

Either I'm going to get loads of flak for this, or find out I'm not alone. At one point I had in my room in Germany:

2 prs BCH mk2
1 pr Pro Boots
1 pr Asslt Boots
1 pr cordura sided Danners
1 pr leather Danners
1 pr Matterhorns
1 pr US Jungle Boots
1 pr US Desert Boots
1 pr Dessie Wellies
1 pr Ammo Boots
1 pr Mess Wellingtons
1 pr George Boots

Where the hell did I put them all? Other than on my feet of course.

This has got to be one of the saddest threads I have ever seen. MODs, can this become the inaugural thread in a new forum specifically for sad threads that deserve their own resting place?

Perhaps it could be called 'Care in the Community'?

There is also a thread asking how many capbadges have you worn? Can I start a thread on jumpers?...I had a green one once, and I called it Nigel.

Guardsman high legs
and
pair of british army boots (that's what they were advertised as) that the sole split in half on. Wasn't happy about that, went back to me high legs.

And i have an old-fashioned pair of hobnail boots somewhere, f*ck me do chavs run off when they hear them marching down't street at them.

Splendid! After all that time in the cadets you've joined a TA band. Well done, that man.
