Subject: Fwd: Egyptian Revolution Protective Armour
I don’t often get emails these days which make me laugh out loud inappropriately….
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:
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
Old skool 80’s broken bin helmet. Im not sure that tuna sarnie he is about to lob is gonna cause to much destruction. I personally love the fact he needs to lift it up to see
Textbook saucepaning with lifejacket combo. He’s not taking ANY $hit!!
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.
