    Tactical pen, legal carry in the UK or not?

    Not sure I think it raised an interesting point which I had not heard before which is that you have to be careful of what manufactures say about their products. I am in the process of building an A5 Bushcraft folder and like a lot of people I EDC carry a pen and notebook so I wanted to raise...

    Survival Tins - Updates

    Yeah, this thread has been really good for ideas like that. I really like the emergency coloured bag that you slip your tin into which then you can dump your contents into. I liked a lot of the bottle ideas however not the bottle itself as it makes too big an item and it plastic. That why I...

    Survival Tins - Updates

    I am not going to search back in this thread because I think it was mentioned however in his pouch he has lock picks and says they are not illegal. I thought they were in the UK or if not that carrying them in this way would be classed as going equipped?

    Survival Tins - Updates

    I think you are on the money Neoaliphant and it about being able to use the items as well. I had an often repacked survival tin however found it a pain to use so Ray's possibles pouch idea was for me then. Over time the survival tin has come back into play for the pack and forget reason however...

    Survival Tins - Updates

    LOL yes I said it I think. Think of a survival tin as your everyday carry in the middle of nowhere and it what you want when you have just watched your rucksack sail down a cliff. I think it includes everything on your person and not just what is in the tin.

    Your medical kit - its a mess!

    No worries as I said finding this information is hard work. I cannot work this out at all because when using an automatic defib you do what the machine tells you. Apparently this case is the reason for that training as the money from the settlement went to that. My stance is if you have the...

    Your medical kit - its a mess!

    Buckshot, I think they knew they would lose because there was 7 minutes of recording from the Defib of the First Aiders not following the defibs instructions and by settling everyone gets to say a First Aider has never been successful sued.

    Your medical kit - its a mess!

    Yes, SJA won the case however it is where the legal definition comes from for how a first aider will be judged in court. I was looking for court cases, not successful court cases, as it looks like everywhere saying there is not one, the defib case was settled however I have actually seen...

    Your medical kit - its a mess!

    Cattley vs St Johns Ambulance Brigade (1988) - This is the case that provides the legal definition for First Aid providers and negligence. St Johns Ambulance Brigade were sued for use of Defib at a half marathon in 1998 which they settled. The St John's case above I believe is the only...

    Survival Tins - Updates

    I think we did use animal fat. Our ancestors must have lived with nothing wasted. There is something else apart from animal fat and bees wax and for the life of me cannot remember it.

    Survival Tins - Updates

    I thought in England it was rushes that were used at the one end. We need someone who makes natural lights and candles who experiments with these things. I wonder what nettle sting used as a wick would be like? I bet this is one of those things that we do not know because no talked about it and...

    Covering Note.

    I hate them with a passion so jars with holes and beer are my weapon of choice.
