            Also.Lack of guidance on and access to care products causing probs. Some lads boots already looking shabby after ranges etc.A lot of taxpayer money being pissed up against the wall.

            Why can we never get things right? Do a bit of research with the manufacturers and issue proper kit and instructions for maintenance of equipment and issue proper guidance on it's use.
            Hopefully the chaos will lead to an update of A9. However, the boots being new, shiny, and possibly the only decent pair some personnel have, they may be wearing them non stop. In my opinion, having Black and Brown boots on issue at the same time was always going to be a sh1te show, if they were intent on going this path, they should have issued across the Army, PDF and RDF, and set a date to switch over to the new boot.

            Given the times we live in with Covid, surely an instrucitonal video on YouTube on the care of Nubuck boots could be produced with the DF AV section. Include maybe some links to where you can get care and cleaning products for said boots. Of course, stores should be issuing said products, but I don't remember ever being issued Kiwi Parade Gloss for my initial order of boots, but I still had it.
            What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

                  Not sure if my phone recording would be of high enough quality to make it to the DF YouTube page, where something like this could be easily accessed. In fact, a whole series of uniform/kit care videos could be put out to be accessed by recruits etc.

                    It has been,But it's a cop out. Just says "as ordered"(IE when to wear).

                    But nothing consistent across the DF.
                    Individual units doing their own thing.
                    "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.

                      Rsms differ.

                        Most recent phones record in high enough quality. Simple innovation like this is always important.
