  1. The NAAFI (British PX) sold the elastics (boot blouses) which everyone bought because they were not issued. More practical than using a rubber band. Trousers were never tucked into boots, using the elastics kept the trousers covering the top of the boot and stopped mud, etc, going into the boot. Even if wearing trainers/running shoes the elastics were still worn.

  6. Those DMS boots will do, they had a rubber sole and were ankle high, hence the necessity of using the puttee on each leg. BCH did not need a puttee, an elastic trouser twist was worn, bottom of lightweight trouser legs or combats were tucked into the elastics which held the trouser leg in place at top of boots. The KF shirt was the uniform shirt and had rank insignia, and was worn under a jumper or combat jacket. The green Norgi shirt was better and worn in place of the KF shirt.
  7. Duplicate topic. Locked
  8. Welcome . The New Players & Arrivals is the correct place to create a topic to introduce yourself.
  9. DMS (direct molded sole) boots are very different to ammo boot (leather and studded). DMS were still worn with puttees until around 1983/84, depending on unit. The new Boot Combat High, initially tested by the Royal Artillery, replaced DMS post Falklands war (1982) and were definately general issue by 1985. BCH were further improved in design due to issue with boot digging into the achilles tendon and better quality softer leather spine introduced. The MkIV metal helmet and spider insert began to be replaced from 1985, and was phased out by 1988. Norwegian army shirts were not issued but most bought them privately and wore them in place of the woolen (stratchy) KF shirts on exercise/operations. Norgi shirts were issued from 1994.
  10. That is pretty much what the basement in The Mall or UCAP Bunker is like, which is why I often just use my Mk23 and go stalking. Does not stop me falling over people or getting shot though.
  11. There are a few YouTube videos about converting the LAM to use a better bulb so that it is actually useful. Beyond my tech skills. A pity that there is not a company/person that you could send your LAM off to so that it gets a decent modification.
