Sniper tape - the green stuff

#1
Sure people must know what I'm on about - the green cloth tape, like duck tape. Can always be found wrapped around any item of kit belonging to somebody in a reccee platoon. Anyway, where can you get it? Or if not, does anybody have some they could part with?

being a light fingerd git o nicked three roles in iraq, you can only get issued on ops so my storman sez. but i suggest you try the latex new stuff which is reusable but i bit more expensive, you get get it from www.rvops.co.uk. or if its greem tape you are after have a look on e bay they some times have it on there dirt cheap.

iirc the tape you're after is meant for temporary fabric repairs, if you google it you should be able to find something similar for about £5 a roll, but your QmT dept should have plenty in stock.

I remember as our COP deployed to Cross for filtering in on green patrols we were advised to un cam our slrs and M16 thingies as we would stand out. How wrong can you get? Day one with the Hampshires was like something out of apocolypse now! We actually stood out as green troops.
Oddly enough as I got out of the landy for an APWT at Gortin the Provost cpl tried to rift me for the cammed up gat. How we laughed. Cop ops wind yer neck in!

Try any of the local scalies. We have loads of the stuff is lets us spot the blokes in the signals who think they are some form of super soldier.

Not to mention any names i have seen one of my grown ups with it wrapped round his flask and pen!!!!

Well if you'll include the dial sight there are some pretty teeny ones there, although naming them is a little beyond me I'm afraid, it is 7 years since I touched one.

If you're not going to include the dial sight I'll plump for the screws that afix the data plate to the sight bracket.

I reckon it was my BSM when he was a Bombardier.

He will utterly destroy me when if he reads it, he's a very angry Para type.
