In todayâs telegraph - sorry canât link - there is an article on the American troop withdrawals from Afghanistan & Iraq. There is an accompanying photo of a spam soldier with a odd looking piece of kit on his webbing. It appears to be about 1ft long and 2âwide with , what looks to be a handle and some sort of dial/meter under it and has the words âNEWINâ in prominent white lettering on the front. As I have been out for some years I was wondering what it could be? My only guess is some sort of searching metal detector thingy as used at airports etc.
