But remember the lace-on extensions you get get for the short DMS boots to replace putties? Always a prized item at the Naafi shop.   

Yes James, I stand corrected the NI Patrol boot, well sort after
not sure if they was available in th 60s though ??

I was involved in an instance where these were used to some effect(not at a Football Match ).A kid turned up during the clash with Hells Angels,armed with a tin of these and a Catapult.The Catapult was deemed illegal to sell in Shops(locally),because of the Hooligan Element.I do not know how widespread this was?Anyway he started firing off and all I can say is,if there had been more Catapults,it would have been very bloody.A lot of the Angels did not have Helmets,so even though a few hit them-it spooked them up(they stopped riding past us for one thing).I know one of the Tactics used was throwng Ball Bearings underneath Police Horses Hooves.

ball bearings under horse hooves, I remember hearing that, great memory Colin,
