I take no credit for these photos or the text, but I wanted to put it on my blog as I thought it was so hilarious. Whoever wrote this, hats off to you (pun definitely intended).
As I said, the text here is not my own, I have received this email about 5 times from different people now, and none ever say who the author is. If you happen to read this, let me know who you are and due credit will be given.
So just to outline here – these are makeshift helmets made by the Egyptians whilst scrapping in their current predicament.
I shall guide you through these pieces of registered non standard army kit:
First up, your classic 1979 ‘Tribottle rag’ helmet – a must in any type of combat
A late 80’s ‘boxhat’. The bloke next to him doesn’t appear too sure of its effectiveness
A renaissance period piece of brickwear teamed with a black and cream scarf. Textbook
Im not sure that tuna sarnie he is about to lob is gonna cause to much destruction.
Old skool 80’s broken bin helmet.
I personally love the fact he needs to lift it up to see –
does he spend the rest of the time walking in to things??
Textbook saucepaning with lifejacket combo. He does not take, ANY!!
I literally have no idea what this is.
And the winner by 100 miles.
This bloke is going to war with 2 baguettes strapped to his ears and a ham salad roll sellotaped to his forehead. I’d def wanna be behind him if someone lobs a load of bricks at me.
