    The exact apparatus is still called a 'thunder box' here, though...
    Same here! The Army still affectionately refers to it by that name

    The ALICE pack. Many civilians still use it to this day, including me. I have 2 i use when camping. However i have changed the hip belt to a newer MOLLE II. The Feldmütze too. The basic design is still in use in many countries including Finland as far as i know. I also use this cap in Russia. The felt wool is great for keeping warm, cool when soaked during summer, grabbing hot mess kits, you can drink from it and what not

    Somehow I just can't picture myself sticking the butt of that in the ground and plonking my a**e on the muzzle.
