    More 68 Pattern kit.

    Post by Easy Gee on Sun Mar 11, 2012 7:04 am

    Hi Guys.

    68 pattern appears to be making a resurgence, maybe Falklands 30th and all, either way I thought I would show you all some more of mine, this set came from the same sqauddie, but look's like it was never worn in battle,unless of course he was REMF Wink

    This flaw is uncommon in DPM but common in early 68's. My 4 part desert camo helmet has the same black(deep brown in desert camo) register error.

    It's enough for you to look at the uniform twice when you see it cos it don't look British.

    Guys, let's please keep it civil and not get into a row over what one regiment thinks of another.

    I know that Gary meant his comment purely in jest, and never meant it to offend anyone. I don't want to have to lock the thread, but I will if this continues.

    Quoting photos that are already posted in the same thread ??? If not, bloody well should be !! Laughing

    To be fair to Cairy, long flowery prose is not something Para Regt are notedly famous for ! And I have said the same thing about folk being disrespectful of Support Arms myself - only in less direct and emotive language.

    "they also serve who stand and wait". Or, no bullets , food , transport and water, no bloodthirsty warriors !

    Thanks for the support Ben, good job you know me better than anyone else, for other members benefit, I have a twisted sense of humour. Wink

    And for the record I have the greatest respect for REMF ,and bloody proud of it,in fact I was always under the impression it was the done thing to have a pop at other sqauddies, never bothered me at the time, and still doesn't!!

    But if this terminology is offensive I will of course stop using this phraseology. Smile

    Absolutely no problem at all Steve, very understandable under the circumstances, I think to be fair sometimes I am guilty of forgetting the sacrifices made by our troops, which I should not.

    Sorry for any offence Mate, no worries, let's move on Wink
