I know this is maybe suited for wanted section, but I'm in need quite desperately....

Would anyone be willing to lend me some Brit Airborne kit for a parachute course I'm doing next month,please?

I want to be dressed appropriately for when I smash into the deck. I will of course cover any and all repairs, replacements and laundry bills. Not bothered about boots, but need everything else uniform-wise, thanks.

I'm 5'11, 42-44 chest, 36 trousers.

Thank you

Manny

Bugger, if you had asked last week I could have done all but the BD blouse in your size.
Stuck in London now. Sorry.

Sean, it's the thought that counts. Thanks anyway!

Neil, yes mate. It's a Pathfinder course.

Sweet. I'll be doing the course next year with the RCPT.

Have you parachuted before? Last time I jumped, I had to cut the main and pull the reserve due to a malfunction.

I'm away from the 6th til the 13th. But, I think I've sorted something. Gary B has made an offer earlier so I'll talk to him later.

As long as his kit fits, I could be ok.

Again, thanks for the offer!!!

Manny

Likewise, I doubt my BD trousers would fit but you're welcome to borrow BD top and Denison mate, lid would be too big for you.
