Discussion in 'Classified Ads' started by Montague, May 22, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well I know they are called boots

    Early issue 'combat highs' but they also had a toe cap like DMS


    58 patt belt and water bottle set and pouch.

    One of them horrid nylon belts that we had in the late 70s

    S6 respirator bag.

    A life.
  2. Try; Soldier of Fortune for the boots.

    I had (issued!) three different type of early high leg boots in the 70's & 80's;

    1, The NI issued boot, different sole to DMS and NO toe cap, 1979.

    2, Boot Combat High, NO toe cap, 1982.

    3, Boots DMS mit toe cap with extentions from a pair of Doc Martin boots and side zips, knocked up by the Choggies in the Kesh in 1979. Mucka Gee, Mucka Gee, Cheese & Egg Burger to go.

    The boots being sold as high leg DMS with a toe cap were available as a private purchase from Army & Navy Stores and similar shops in Aldershot in the 70's and 80's. Did not stop some RSM's making you wear puttees on top!!!!

    Of course any squaddie who had served in German had a pair of the German Para Boots. (For exercise purposes only!!!).

    If you live near to Milton Keynes, I may be able to do a deal for some of the other bits you want.
