Selotape a carrier bag with a bag or sugar onto your legs and go for a jog, see if having something srapped to your leg is a good idea then.Im just new on this site and found this topic pretty interesting, however, you are given (im not in the army so just guessing) 6 SA80 Mags? If you arent able to strap them to your front or legs, where would you put them? do you have to strap them to your back and become some sort of contortionist so that you can reload? Im hoping to join the infantry soon and I'd also probably carry my pistol in a drop leg holster. If you cant use these then where are you supposed to put them? It all seems pretty messed up to be perfectly honest.
******* brilliant, that last one literally made me cry with laughter. Thank you.couldn't find a suitable thread but thought this was the right place for this important advisory from DCTA I recvd at work recently:
Subject: release-authorised: Egyptian Battle Kit - R-292359z Feb 11 Z covering AUSCANUKUS - Eyes Only.......[TRADOC initial assessment - some of this product has already surfaced on the Web...we need to grip this people...]
So just to outline here these are makeshift helmets made by the Egyptians whilst scrapping in their current predicament. I shall guide you through these pieces of registered non standard army kit:
Your classic 1979 Tribottle rag helmet a must in any type of combat
A late 80s boxhat. The bloke next to him doesnt appear too sure of its effectiveness
A renaissance period piece of brickwear teamed with a black and cream scarf. Textbook
Im not sure that tuna sarnie he is about to lob is gonna cause to much destruction.
Old skool 80s broken bin helmet. I personally love the fact he needs to lift it up to see does he spend the rest of the time walking in to things??
Textbook saucepaning with lifejacket combo. He does not take, ANY!!
I literally have no idea what this is.
And the winner by 100 miles.
This bloke is going to war with 2 baguettes strapped to his ears and a ham salad roll
sellotaped to his forehead. Id def wanna be behind him if someone lobs a load of bricks at me.
Scchhh....you know who....
