  • Catfight! (split from IFAK thread)

    Only problem is, as Apod pointed out, it's kinda redundant if nobody else does it. What needs to be done across units in the DF is just what the Yanks, Brits, etc. do. IFAK pouch in a standardised poistion on the battlevest, with same equipment inside it so each member of a section, platoon etc. knows exactly where to go if they need to get to it.
    The dump pouch would make a good substitute..........

    We've been over this before, that dump pouch is shite. It's especially shite when you try use it as an extra pouch.

      At least try it before you dismiss it entirely. With the quick release clips on it, it's perfect for an IFAK

        With the big hole in the top of it, with nothing inside it to secure the kit, it's perfect if you want everything to fall out of it.

        Anyway, you haven't even tried it yourself.

          First off not a big hole, one of the main reasons it fails as a dump pouch. Second, the kit inside the pouch packed properly will stop it from bouncing about and falling out. Thirdly, I haven't had a chance to try it out YET.........

                Roughly three months before me. I've been a lines Private a lot longer than you.

                Now, go ahead and mention Overseas. Even though it bears no relevance to the discussion.

                  Sorry I can't hear you over the sound of my medals.............

                  Happy?

                  You brought up the fact I'm employed in an office even though it has no bearing on the discussion. I still do duties and exercises, same as you though I'll admit not as frequently

                  A compromise.................I'll get a pic or two of how I have the dump pouch rigged up on my vest and the PDF members of the board can give their opinion.

                    Lads- hit the mess- hit the beer- then hit each other, sorted!
                    But there's no danger
                    It's a professional career
                    Though it could be arranged
                    With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear
                    If you're out of luck you're out of work
                    We could send you to johannesburg.

                        Worst cat fight ever
                        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.

If it's going to be used for anything other than empty mags, it should only be used temporarily, and with stuff that needs to be available to hand, like a derailed KITE sight, or extra smokes/pyro/shamoolis etc; stuff that's mission essential.

                              "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.
