    Hi any old soldiers about? "Shellscrape" question

    Hi all, I'm planning to run a shellscrape activity for some kids, it's to do with a veteran group I'm workingwith. I was in the Infantry T.A. in the early 90's and the shellscrape was a common overnight shelter for 2 soldiers. (the kids will be digging it....probably in sand. If you're an ex...

    Can anyone id my sleeping bag? (so I know it's rating)

    Hi i bought a bargain sleeping bag for £4 at a car boot sale. I took a brief look at the bag before buying and knew it was a "90 pattern British army sleeping bag" and I cvould see it was in good condition. When I got it home I wanted to give it a good wash but sadly the previous owner removed...

    Bushcraft / Scout webbing setup

    nothing wrong with mentioning it, best place to depart with unwanted kit is swaps or selling area on the forum , you will find forum rules and general ethos there.

    Bushcraft / Scout webbing setup

    but then you find the best pouch ever..and can't fit it on the belt... I did the same thing years ago made a decision to stick to one design, I then pop riveted a load of pouches to a belt which worked well untill I wanted to add or change something,. I do like modifying things though ;)

    Bushcraft / Scout webbing setup

    Ah nice! I just took photos of my Poncho roll compared to an original works well but obviously the same limitations that 58" gear has. The poncho roll easily contains 2 US ponchos with pegs paracord bungees etc. Here showing the size and design difference, buckles rather than those tuck...

    Bushcraft / Scout webbing setup

    I'm still finding ways to adapt webbing, I like the mix-n-match aproach! as for a poncho roll modification, I did one years ago but can't find photos, anyhow here is a poncho roll/PLCE sidepouch type idea http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=51433&highlight=poncho+roll+mod...

    REALLY reproofing an army poncho.

    The big 310 ml Cartridge, please scale it up or down if you want, there is no magic percentage. My mixture as I say was ROUGHLY half and half, it was thick/tacky it felt a bit like rolling gloss paint onto the poncho, you could make it much thinner or thicker, best to test it first.

    Found nearly new pair of aproach trainers for £6.99 at a charity shop, and a brand new British army shirt (new camo) for £3 not worn as it still has the makers lables attatched!

    REALLY reproofing an army poncho.

    The finish seems really good, possibly better than the original coating! I have no problem in usung the same process to waterproof other kit.

    REALLY reproofing an army poncho.

    I didn't measure it, as I was a bit stumped how to measure small amounts of the silicon without covering things in silicon (as it's in the plastic tube), but it was roughly half and half but probably slightly more turps than silicon. I've tried different amounts and it won't make too much...

    yeah...possibly:rolleyes: with a single letter change. somehow I can't see silicon art taking off, no doubt some crazy artist has done it already. (Google search) I was right...silicon sea/wave pictures http://www.rawartists.org/siliconeart someone has made a carpet pattern on a stone floor...
