                They aren't matterhorn boots,they are manufactured by Haix of Germany & they are quite comfortable:D Also they are on issue to Arty Units only at the moment.I think Engineers to follow.

                          during my recruit training we did a manual handling course with the artillery school, and i wqas told never to handle any heavy equipmnet without the proper safety gear, i don't think 24bs come under that heading so what are the implications of this, is the df not open to legal cases if there is an accident

                            good day at the office for you. In short, yes, if a task requires PPE (Personal
                            Protective Equipment), then the DF are bound by law under the Health And Safety
                            At Work Act (1989, I think) to provide the PPE for that task....

                              Same could be said for all the Protective equipment we are not being issued with...
                              Raingear,
                              Thermal underwear,
                              Ballistic vests,
                              Ballistic Helmets,
                              Active hearing protection,
                              safety glasses(for shooting),
                              knee pads for FIBUA
                              etc....
