Replacement boot laces

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by oldcolt, Sep 1, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Further to my thread/ posts about my new 'issue' Lowas, I have now hit a problem in that the laces have snapped and the QM is refusing to replace them :x . Any advice on how I should go about getting a replacement issue pair?
  2. I buy mine from a shop.
  3. Or buy some from a shop!

    Edit to add can't type as fast as Fallsthingummy
  4. Write a letter to your local MP, demanding that the rules should be changed and the QM should presented to a DCM and shot. Alternatively you could just buy a pair.
  5. Or you could make some out of cat gut or a string of daises or something.
  6. Have you been issued Lowas because you have mongy feet resembling cloven hooves?
  7. It's all very well taking the p!ss, but we should receive issued kit (my bold)

  8. You did receive the kit, it's not the QM's fault you broke it.

  9. If issue kit is diffy/ duff when its issued or is not up to the job, surely it should be replaced!? :x
