boots...troops for the use of...

Yes...brings back ATC air force cadet days...the boots (left over WW2 items but 'brand new') were issue in natural leather finish...I seem to recall you first had to apply black raven oil ....memory foggy on that one.

Then you got your tin of black Kiwi boot polish and very very oh so carefully got a match and lit some in the tin lid...letting the flame do its work until the contents were liquid..

blow out the flame, then get your rag and have at the boots till they were covered in the muddy liquid polish...then polish for all you were worth, spitting on boots in between changes of rag...re apply melted polish till you could see your face in 'em....

I guess it was just a government plot to give the troops something to do so they wouldnt get into other trouble.... :)

Could it all be part of a sheepshaggers plot to kill us all..... :)
