I had a visit from one of my neighbours just an hour ago, and he left me with a large cardboard box full of combat clothing and equipment which had been dumped at the council tip. Here follows a list of material....
One-man tent with mosquito net.
Four pairs of desert camo combat trousers.
Two pairs of woodland camo combat trousers.
One desert camo lightweight combat jacket.
Two woodland camo lightweight combat jackets.
One waterproof JACKET. COMBAT. MPV. (woodland camo).
One under armour combat shirt (desert camo).
Two packets of army-issue snot rags.
One Shemagh in unopened packet.
One water bottle.
Eight various -sized pouches.
One complete assault vest.
All items were issued to a serviceman serving in the Royal Navy. For the life of me I cannot understand how an ex-serviceman can dump this much equipment. If they all do that, it must cost the government an absolute fortune. In my day you had to hand in all your kit. You were only allowed to keep your suitcase, towels, socks and beret (without badge).
