All, apologies for posting this question here but as I can't be arssed creating a login to Rum and Ration to ask a simple question on Issue boots, then I thought I would post here as I am sure I will get the answer I need. Right my lad is looking to join the Royal Marines (done and aced an assessment course at Lympstone) once he finishes college, now he has a few months to work on his fitness, and he was told by the PTI's down there the only areas he needs to work on a bit was upper body and carrying weight ie Tabbing or yomping as the booties call it. Now I am 10 years out so haven't got a clue what the issue boot is now, in my day it was the good old fashioned combat high, then we got Brit Boots to go to Bosnia/Kosovo. So can someone please let me know what the issue boot is for the Royal Marines? so I purchase a pair and get my lad tabbing in em, so he can break his feet and shins in and put some miles in his legs, prior to his Basic Training in the type of boot he will be wearing. Many thanks in advance for any relevant info?
