On at the moment. Talking about equipment provided for the soldiers in Afghanistan. One mother stated she has given her son (just 18 and on his way to the sandy place) money to buy "comfortable" stuff. When asked what, she said she bought his webbing, his ammo pouches and "stuff to go round his belt" because it wasn't issued. Either the Army is getting worse than I thought or this lad has just got some extra beer tokens from Mum & Dad.
