Nothing new there then :D
But what happens when procurement doesn't buy any more tape?

The ultimate lean mean fighting machine.
No Navy, rent when needed.
Army, 20.
RAF, 20,000.

Get on the Herc, sleep, get off the Herc, Patrol, get on the Herc, sleep, get off the Herc, Patrol. Get on the Herc, sleep, get off the Herc, screw missus, get on the Herc, etc

And don't mention the Civil Servant unit on call 9-5/5 in event of emergency backup required.

Can we still afford to issue them or is it like the old days when you had to buy your own? (like a sleeping bag that works).

Black nasty was always a good trading medium, I gave a new roll of 2" to some lads from the SBS (after fixing their kit without the 1045 palaver, they need all the help they can get) for free and they were gobsmacked. Paracord was the devil to get, but ordinary nylon cord was a good second best

Whats fer**ng gaffer tape?

If you mean Harry Black/black nasty etc etc then yes most of your equipment has been held together using that since Jesus was a lad.

It has many names but please dont call it Gaffer Tape it is worthy of more respect than that.

How many other pseudonymns does this wonderful product have? and does anyone have the NSN and designation to be recorded here for posterity?

Please note, it's a quote from Jeremy Clarkson, hence the invert commas and therefore the gaffer reference.

Ah if it is a quote from Sir Jeremy then the term is not in question and I bow my head tug my forelock and humbly walk backwards out of the room and get back in my box

Now the NSN,s are out, hammer the QM,s with demands and again in two weeks time. it's an expense item if I recall correctly but what part number is it for rocking horse shyt and can you get any. Even rarer, Decisions Yes, Qty 10 Pkt. and Decisions No, Qty 10 Pkt.

"Gaffer" tape - the film making industry's name for a truly ubiquitous product. So called because the chief electrician is known as the Gaffer.

OK, so Sir Jezzer said it, but do we really want to start sounding like the arty-farty, champagne socialist types who work in entertainment? Personally, I'll always think of it as masking tape.

And by the way, is it not also true that what used to be BAOR was held together by the D10 wire abandoned by units in woods and forests when they bugged out? I suspect that, if anyone has been around clearing that lot up, it's no wonder the world is falling gently outwards at the moment ...

The whole British Army is not held together by gaffer tape! Everyone knows, though it is a closely guarded secret, that "THEY" are held together by black nasty...
