I have to say I think that's a load of b0llocks. Soldiers are like children??? Preposterous notion!
My bits of kit names:
1. Crisp bag = pre-goretex 'waterproof' - yeah right! Does anyone remember the green ones (reserved for Warrant Officers only in 1 unit I served in - good to see the moral component being adhered to there!) or the really odd waterproofs with the black rubber lining?
2. John Wayne = shiny loo roll in older 24 hr rat packs.
Darth - the black lined waterproofs were anti static and for use by those handling POL etc. As opposed to the crisp packets, which generated huge levels of static.
Donkey's Dick - nozzle for sucking fuel into a bowser.
Two man, twin fan aluminum (sp) pursuit ship - Tornado F3
Two palm trees fcuking a bus - Chinook
Contra-rotating death banana - Chinook
gonk - sleeping bag
