After hearing you own a Sapphire Valet box, I reckon we need to see the end product! Very impressive!

Seconded… I’m too scared to deviate from kiwi. Although my dms shoes need to stripping and rebulling so may give it a go with them

It was a Christmas present! :joy::innocent:

For peaks?

Can’t think of anything else it could be used for. Won’t be any good on my peak though, it’s cloth.

Pace stick hinges and to clean the swords when they come out to play and the officers can’t keep their greasy mits of the pointy bits

Great list Alex,

I have everything in your list as well as…

Lint remover/brush
Duck tape (also for lint removal)
Suede Boot Brush
Double sided tape
Dishcloth
Razor
Shoelaces
Superglue
Scissors
And a bar of soap for the trouser seems!!!

Forgot the trusty soap… To be fair I’ve not opened it for a year now :joy::joy:

Haha fair, whats the marine blue polish for??

Just find it deepens that shine a little bit… Literally a single coat bulled right at the end

3 x £5 airfix kits.

Amazing the shoe shine job a cadet will do for an airfix kit.


















Only kiddding…
Jesus. Can feel some reaching to condemn.

But. In all seriousness, Mrs P, bought me a lovely Mess Clutter box this Christmas. Keeps all my stuff just right.

Whats this for?

Had an accident? :rofl::joy::rofl::joy:

Accidents happen!!

So this probably deserves a whole new topic, but, modifying your uniform…

I’m looking at retrofitting velcro to my temperate mtp shirt cuffs.

I’m also thinking about attaching velcro to the inside of my Stable belt, and a velcro belt through the loops of my no 2s, thus effectively turning it in to a duty belt.

What do u guys think??

What are your favourite kit MODs?

@AlexCorbin twitching yet…
