Acetone - make sure you wash it all off with soapy water afterwards.

cigarette ash and spit... really. I always have a smoker in my section just for tht purpose.

Or acetone, nail polish remover or simlar. ASAP, before it marks the plastic.

Then slap the guy you lent it to.

write over the permanent stuff with dry wipe pen, then wipe off the whole lot together :)

white spirit has also been known to be of use.

Neither work in real life. My mapcase is a constant stained reminder of my innability to give a decent set of Recce orders after 36 hours on the advance :D

May i suggest that, if the offender has returned said item in dog order without replacing it, perhaps you could use his blood to mark it next time.

Just a thought

Simple permanent marker to mark it in the future. Will rub off in time. To clean fully some camera lens cleaners with Isopropyl Alcohol in. Be careful of the acetone; it can damage the fabric over time. As someone mentioned - wash it afterwards.

Duraglit/Brasso metal polish also works.

You want to use fine permanent marker pens to write with (no of these super size board markers) and get yourself down to boots and buy some nail varnish removal pads they work awesome in the field. Don't buy a mahoosive fcuk off bottle of the stuff just get a small tub of the pads. unless you want it for back in barracks then get a rag and a large bottle.

Hope that helps

Whoooo my first reply :D
