  • Re: Stupidest piece of kit you've ever bought(taken from arrse.co.uk)

        Protac webbing

        Protac Combined Compass
        is there a bit of a common denominator here
        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.

              Well I had this Idea that they would work (if doubled up) as a sling for the Bren, or FN(in the same way as the sling works on the Steyr). However the sling rings on both weapons were about a milimetre too small to accept the sling.

                  Plastic mess tin. In fairness the fat chap in army bargains convinced the young recruit in me that I'd be using it every weekend.

                          it was worth setting up this thread purely for the laugh i got imagining Havoc trying to use his plastic mess tin over a hexi-burner!! Brilliant!!!

                          And the warrior whispers back "I am the storm".

                              The only way I use it now is as a portable little shaving mug.
