The other way of finding out is to look at the label.

This might be difficult for the younger members to find as the MOD still do some things the old fashioned way, and like the labels on the inside of the garments......

:wink:

And it might come as a bit of a shock for older members to find that the MOD no longer do things the old fashioned way :wink:

Rubbish.

Procuremant has a long history of being pants, and it's the one tradition that The Glorious Leader has no intention of changing !

I don't think we use webtex as most of the stuff is junk.....

I bought a webtex assault vest thinking it was the puppies privates apart from when I put it on, it was the most impractical piece of dpm junk I have ever had my hands on.

For Sale now if anyone wants it £40.......pm me.......

Not the best salesman in the world am I?

"Hmmm," thinks the senile dude in a moment of lucidity, "Did eating out of ally messtins really bring on my Alzheimer's ? I'd better check."

He slowly shuffles the eight feet to the locker, and while leaning on his zimmer frame picks up the MVP kit with a 'Helping Hand' pincer.

A fumbling check on the outside eventually reveals no Nike/Gucci/CD labels, so the decrepit fingers attempt to peel the velcro apart, badly hindered by the advanced stages of Parkinson's Disease.

After thirty minutes of cursing his arthritis-ridden digits the smock falls open to reveal a green tag on the inside.
Description, NSN, Size, then......Manufacturer ! In this case, Remploy Ltd.

An investigation of the strides revealed the remnants of several bouts of incontinence, but poking through one of the crusty layers was a similar label, but this time indicating that they were made by Annis Protective Wear Ltd.

"Ah," he mused, "Labels on the inside of the garments. Those were the days !"

Get in touch with DCTA, they may give you a list of contractors.

I'm sure some items were made abroad (Czech? & Asia? by sub-contractors) and I think some boots may be made in Germany.

Ammo boots were made by Hobsons, but I'm not sure if they still have the contract.
