    I'm trying to find out who actually manufactures the current issue assault boots. Any help gratefully received.
  2. GB Britton, they have a website, however I don't know how to put a link in.
  3. I think they're made in Spain now. Lowest bidder? Possibly why we had a batch in the system with soles that crumble on contact with fresh air...
  4. That's a classic TLA...

    Can't find any maker details on the box a brand spankers pair I was issued last week came in. However, the boots are dated 2006, the qualioty control label inside is written in english and there is also a SHELF LIFE of 4 years plus 1 year wear on the outside of the box.

    Most exciting.

    GB Britton/UK Safety lost the contract to a Spanish company.
  11. The current pair i have are dire, the sheels have disentigrated after 4 months of wear and the stores are trying to say i have used them improperly. WHAT by wearing them for F**K sake.
  12. DPM Guy, send the faulty boots to the DC IPT via the QMs. If the shelf life has expired or its a bad batch we need to trace the problem. Tell the QMs to fill out a Defect Report and send it in, they will get an answer immediately.

    If we don't get the boots we can't do anything about it.
  13. Unfortunatly its classified to such a high level that only two people know the truth. Me and the bloke that signs the cheques! This is because if the truth were to get out, research has indicated a very high likely-hood of the blind, retard umpa loompas that make them will be nailed by their feet to a tree, hung upside down and left there to rot. I have to now as the nurse has arrived with my mashed bannanas.
