I do indeed, I was probably locked up in my cell at the time!   "Points to Note"   Should not their heels be on the line as opposed to their toes, unless of course they were all issued with the same size boots? Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Well spotted Ginger ! And does the L/Cpl in No.1s , and holding a ceremonial sink plunger, have brothel creeper soles on his boots ?
Looks like they're well over 1" (25mm) thick............ but well polished and probably some Scaley specials to give protection from earthing.

Oops!  WTF are those ?  .......... And why Ammo Boots anyway

In my limited experience I've had Boots brown, Burma, ( withdrawn & soaked in black stuff before I'd bought a tin of Dark Brown Kiwi),  Ammo boots with lots of shiny studs which had to be polished, Boots POL with neoprene soles fixed on with non-sparking, brass studs, uncomfortable DR Boots which limited circulation when the buckles were pulled tight around flesh below the knees, Boots DMS with nylon in-soles, and best of all, some high legged US kit, brown with rubber soles and a daily loan issue for winter guard mounting. And, of course, opportunities to become familiar with Boots, Old, but no more about that ! ........

But tap-tap  boots ?  Wot's  that ?

A fashion adopted by the Brigade of Guards (If they still have a Brigade?). Quite simply it is a pair of boots fitted with two soles, makes small Guardsmen look taller. Very Happy Very Happy

It probably has the same effect as the "Personalised" beret, sewn in creases etc - makes him feel like a bit of a sweat!

Double tapped???What a load of old cobblers


The reply to my request for information on the boots


Not sure which photo you gleaned my boots from (22 Sigs?) but yes, MANY years ago I had them resoled by a German cobbler.

Lasted another 20 years
