Is it me? MTP worn next to skin

#1
Hi, a recent spell of warm weather saw me omit the tee shirt underneath. All day I felt like i was wearing sand paper and suffered all night. Yes, I am soft; but surely this shouldn't be? Does any one else suffer in silence for fear of abuse?
Awaits abuse...............................

Clearly you didn't grow up wearing the brown KF shirts. If you did you would have developed resistance to this little problem. Instead you'll have to wash your MTP in hot water and add Comfort to your final rinse a few times. This will make your MTP feel softer on your skin and will remind you of being hugged by mummy...

Next time you have a shower... dry yourself with sandpaper!

It's you, you're young (and you sound quite sensitive, maybe you should seek out the 'one' called Jarrod, he will toughen you up) and you're skin will toughen with age. As to comparing MTP with shirt, KF, bah, give that to the modern army and you're feet wouldn't touch the ground before you were facing multiple charges of breaching human rights legislation.

Brown KFs!!!!! your memory must be in black and white.

You mean green, I've still got mine and tempted to still wear them. A good ironing on the first of the month kept them wrinkle free for 4 weeks.

I soaked my shirts, KF, in fabric softener, then shaved the inside with a bic.

Poof!!

You never experienced the joys of basic in winter when you were hit with the triple whammy of a freshly shaved neck, KF shirt and a brand new wooly pully!

My neck glowed in the dark for weeks, but it made a man of me!!

Happy days

You're in the AGC or the RAF Regt and I claim my £5.

Shirts were often used as marques when the champers was in danger of getting too warm.

My original issue of DPMs was size 001, I could climb into each leg. My Gran had to tailor the stuff for me otherwise I would have been court marshalled for being far too tatty for the RAF.

The bus is having the dried gob removed from the window!

I did think at the time that everyone else must have been 7ft tall with 40" waists!

So the regular bummings were voluntary rather than inflicted then?
