Socks

Yep. When you can see the shelf through the holes, it's time to mag to grid.

Oh my days, seriously???

Do they smell of eggs? no? Then they should be ok to eat!

If you really must use issue socks then exchange them when they are worn out.

Or, if you dont wear them often enough then wear them out manually, a tin of beans in the heel and the vigerous application of a scotchbrite usually does the trick.

I don't know about a shelf life but I once shared a room with a bloke whose socks had devloped into a new life form. But I suppose we've all done that.

Of course they have a shelf life. When was the last time you saw a fossilised dinosaur sock?
Thats right, never.

Ok, possibly the dumbest question I've ever asked but:

Do the issue black socks have a shelf life? (issued to me in 2003).
Hail Cretinia-long live Cretins-long live the black sock secret society. .

That's a hard one to answer.




We would need to know all the other dumb questions you have asked, in order to judge how dumb this one is !

The quartermaster sergeant is wise to that trick. It's OK to request a replacement issue if your kit is damaged through FWT (fair wear & tear) but he'll spot a pair 'artificially aged" and you'll be on a charge for destroying Army property. ;-) :p (We blanket stackers aren't stupid you know.)
