    For comparison purposes

    The differences between NIPB and BCH were that NIPB was basically an extended version of the DMS and had a softer leather shaft than the cardboardy shaft of the BCH.
    Also the BCH didn't have a toecap or the low heel section and a had much less rounded toe shape than the DMS/NIPB
    Another difference is the grip.The BCH had the new style grip, whereas the NIPB had the standard DMS grip.

    The 3 with the short strides on - that's 4th June 1974 in Belfast.

    I've got a pair of Jaytex ruperts in a similar but smaller check to the ones in that '73 pic - straight leg sta press, 17 inch bottoms.

    Sprayed up Martens - popular early 70s footy attire when ye boots were no longer fashionable - spray them silver, have a scrap, all the paint falls off, spray them gold for next week - great.
