Me thinks that your JNCOs need a firm speaking to

combat body armour first used in gulf war
Ecba is enhanced combat body armour which comes with two ceramic plates front and back .The complete thing consists of liner two plates and a cover either dpm or desert .It also has a fastlock buckle at the back which is supposed to allow you to attach it too a belt .No ones does and some people steal it too make a loop for attaching rifle to assault vest .On issusing have been a few dramas people signing for plates they didnt know they needed though hopefully that doesn't happen anymore .And being handed a vest or cover with the rear pocket missing .Oh and some people getting excited about the useless buckle thing so if its missing let
the stores bloke know cos if he is that **** might try to bill you for it .

To be fair, I'd never heard of it until one was thrust at me in Basra Airport. "Fifty degrees and they're issuing body-warmers???" :roll: THEN we got the Softies!

I thought you had to fly into Basra with them on?

(As you can tell I read Soldier Magazine)

Oh come on!

If you've ever done any kind of live firing that was more interesting than just lying on the point then you must have been issued CBA.

I cannot believe that anyone outside of OTC or Cadets is asking this.

you obviously don't serve in a Specialist unit......it may have changed in 2 years but the only time we got issued CBA was on Telic....and I had to give mine back as I left .......your unit obviously makes you do run-downs wearing the full ish ? how terribly warry.....straightforward question from TB sensibly responded to by Woods....

I'm sure I'm not the only one to be floored by TLAs....

A bit difficult as they were issued in Basra. (The softies were actually issued beforehand, but poetic licence is permitted).

SH1T! Did I wander round Iraq for 6 months wearing a softie instead of CBA? No wonder it was warm. 8O
