    British Army BCH-Boots,Combat,High introduced around 1983 I believe after the Falklands war when it was found just how bad the previous ankle DMS boots were.

    Yup, what Gulf said Very Happy Germans have boots with either a distinctive top or a distinctive soul, depending on the era we're talking about.
