Firstly no disrespect to those deployed,I don,t want to get into a pissing contest. Right does anybody think that todays young thrusters are a bit to fashion conscious? I read all the time on here about how gash the issue kit is and how someone has just paid £900.00 for the latest style of boot, also it seems all the rage to buy your own webbing..ffs do the army not give you any these days? and as for berets..I,ll not even go there(besides you all wear them like Andy Capp) but I suppose it,s a generation thing really? the lads who wore BDs would have liked my OG combats and DMS and if truth be told I would have liked your gear...which in ten years time you,ll all be calling it rubbish in a "worst kit issued thread". Right thats the sensible bit out of the way and this is the NAAFI ...so I think you,re all a bunch of fannies and your cashmere hd pullovers and silk undercrackers are winging their way to the QMs as we speak. OOH OOH I,ve just bought the latest leatherman ffs what was wrong with a clasp knife with that pointy bit on it for getting boy scouts out of horses hooves.
