    No worries, never had the chance to use one personally,deactivated or otherwise, but I am aware of their superb fire power, amazing to think they started out in US bombers.....


    Cool pic Mark!!! Wink

    i have one of them temperate jackets, they are the s94 short lived garments that go funny when washed. the material tends to fade like mad and wears thin easy. the army dumped them in the surplus market about 6 years ago, think i paid £5 for mine new.

    I agree the RAF,do tend to do things differentley with their kit, in fact most of my "oddities" have been RAF originated....more research is needed on this me thinks!!! Laughing

    Thats strange-does it have an issue label?

    I have a Gulf91 hat which has the large mesh backed vents and a later more modern type that has smaller unmeshed vents-never seen one without Shocked

    no label, only small size lable (60), could it be commercial?
