    Don't think so and even if they do they aren't linked to individuals. They were just handed out and signed for, nothing uniquely identifiable about them.

    Lads, are DF smocks that hard to come by? I've got a few from a PDF/BA swap I did with a 'bod' (decent bod indeed ) but I've no use for it any more. Would I get some decent dosh for it on ebay, or does anyone fancy one?

    Desert pattern raingear?
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    The person is arranging collection in Dublin, so if the PAs were anyway interested they could do a sting operation.

    He's probably an exer so he could tell the PAs to **** off couldn't he? Doubt the gardai will waste time on it.

    Brilliant,

    I love emmaculate stuff.
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Do you know what I wish?
    That someone would commercially make and sell the old green combat jacket with the vertical chest pockets and the poachers pocket.
    It's no longer uniform, you could alter it slightly but damn....I'd buy it and I promise you a lot of others would too!

    Wouldn't have done much good to me down here.
    But the comments and requests I got on my now worn-out example convince me there's a market for a civilianised version.
