From memory but I think its actually some six inch nails as mine prodders and some mine tape to mark them with.

You RE?
Our Tp minestrike kits contain:

14 gauge, about a foot in length

One reel of Mine tape

6" Nails (or 6" lengths of 14 gauge) Qty 10 with a square of white Minetape impaled on them used to mark the mines

A fablonned copy of the mines and actions on leaflet given out by the MITC


One in each truck, one to be carried (albeit smaller in content) by each bloke on the ground.

Hehehe.. Reckon so A_K_T_T_E

BennyB. The most important bit is ensuring that the guys in the section/troop all know the drills for actions on. pointless having the kit in the webbing if each and every bloke is off doing his own thing.

Know the plan for actions on.

Know the marking system the Troop has chosen.. If they all use white tape on a bit of nail, nobody can mistake it for something else / ignore it. You dont know where you're going to be minestriked. It might even be in a scrapyard. Uniformity is essential!!

Make sure every bloke knows all of the above.

And don't forget the most important part of your minestrike kit....

Lots of soft, absorbant toilet paper and a spare pair of skiddies.

May I suggest ear defenders? Apparently, if you are unfortunate enough to tread on an AP mine you risk serious hearing loss - which can be permanent!

Fair point, and all that nasty shrapnel flying about might blind you, so a set of goggles would be handy.
