    DMS, Puttees, Swinderby PE Kit, Simod trainers, most of the other stuff has been good enough, some stuff has been better.

    Ear defenders. Before the green ones came along I remember some cream or white plastic things that were feck all use to anyone in their intended role. I think I cut and stuffed some more foam in from the line stores in the end.

    The good old Amplivox ear defs.

    We used a mixture of foam and PRC inside the shell to reduce the amount of noise getting to our ears.
    It's not the man in the fight - it's the fight in the man.

  8. Surprised nobody has mentioned the old 'Government Property Toilet Paper'?.......Now, that was sh*t.....
