I think the real answer is that when your rigging lines are deploying you do not want anything (like buttons) for them to snag on. I think.

:? that would require the whole button to be taped.

its so that the thread cant unravel, thus one button short, causing about 10lbs of kit to fall out of the pocket, and yer fags, nothing worse than the fags going diffy (is that homophobic?)

oops that was meant to quote the rigging reply

Well the thing is that if the lads are going to ally up their kit then they need a half plausible reason for it. I am of course talking complete bollix as the wiser heads in the thread spotted immediately. The real answer to the question is: How should I know? :) Good luck. And stag on.

You did a Les Dawson there, gave a funny reply without realising.

Fallschirmjager is correct, the taping of the studs on the para smocks is the new rage down in 16 BDE at the moment...ally as fcuk.

I am REME and non airborne trained, therefore I am a hat, I understand this.
But I have been aquainted with chumps not in the paras who insist they are not hats.
I believe that if you are not para regt then you are a hat, does anybody agree/disagree?
Eitherway, I wear my 'hat' with pride.
discuss
A blast from the past from last year, maybe before you did P Coy :? mate, do you still stand by your a/was a HAT.
