Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

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

  1. Any CBRN Gurus about?

    Just had to change my respirator, checked all valves and all in date (2003), also has the little clip in the bottom - trouble is the actual respirator is a 1991. Now, I did hear somewhere that they had changed the life dates upo to 20 years for one (rather than the 10 years it used to be?).

    My question is this - simply, is the fcukin thing in date?

    Cheers in advance

    (and, yes, I did use the search function!)
  2. It's 20 years, so you are in date.

    The other mod was the strap clips having the knurled bits.
  3. Yeah thats all sorted mate. Cheers
