aaahhhh, the joys of d.m.s. boots. I actually thought they were a good bit of kit.
dunno what went wrong with them in the Falklands. Perhaps the quality of the product went down the drain. I remember spending long hours burning them down with the back of somebody else,s spoon, using ONLY KIWI polish. Then building them up to a mega shine, ready for duty as the Battalion Orderly Corporal, only for some mindless tw*t to scuff them just before Razzmans parade.
While we are on the subject of boots, does anybody remember "Boots Cold Wet Weather[C.W.W.]" nicknamed Boots Cobbly Wobbly
[I can smell that polish burning]
P.S. we used to soften them by widdling on them.
