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.

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!!!

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.
