ARRSE Dixies Corner Compass mod



what we're doing here is putting a compass pocket on to the new style combat jacket which isn't as simple as it looks because you're actually working actually inside the pocket normally this type of thing would have been added during production and as it's an add-on it makes it a lot more complicated and difficult to get into we can say obviously save cost because the pockets themselves are already made up so that when guys turn up so I need it done ASAP we actually have a property made up it's just the written role of actually getting the stand being in place so the theory is this would look good and do a job there we go the important thing if you're putting a compass pocket in it's a that when you put it in and close it up it's actually covered what you don't want is a compass sitting out like so or like so kind of gives you going away look if there's a soldier with a compass in this pocket makes a nice little target the other feature is we put an eyelet in so you can actually attach the compass and that's silly but it works there's nothing worse than losing your compass in the middle of nowhere because you've lost and simple closure velcro if you damage it it's easy enough to replace the hardest part of this is now we've actually got it on the pocket I've got to get the machine through this hoping here to stitch this part here where I've stitched the compass pocket in there might be some swearing I wish I was written to my master master tailor sometimes it can go really easily other times it can be a total son-of-a-bitch job to do trying to get it to go back exactly the same way because the jackets are so well made obviously they weren't designed to be taken apart and muck around with the mo D or the manufacturers realized that the please done that yet I'm sure their designers we have a compass pocket on I'll go do now just pick out on a good day I'll remove all the old threads when I'm really rushed you can pick them out yourself in the battlefield who gives it there don't tell my machinist I said that we shall go out for me professionalism there we go good as new and it's this Matt pocket that causes the problems obviously drop down
