After watching a nice young lad growing up I thought he had reached a stage in his development to introduce him to the beating line. He is the son of my daughter's best friend and had infinite patience looking after my grandson four years his junior. He enjoyed his day but struggled towards the end. The main reason was probably the fact he had standard wellies rather than more suitable walking boots. Money is tight in his family. I commented to the keeper that I was looking into purchasing a pair of ex army boots for the kid. He said he would go halves. The lad is still growing so to purchase an expensive pair would be a waste of money but there is an endless supply under forty on fleabay. The question is has anyone bought and using a spasific pair of ex forces that they can give a personal recommendation for. There are so many.
Fairly difficult walking in deep moss but fairly firm under foot. Water proof to a certain extent as on wet days the moss retains a lot of water. I am waiting for size info but would be 8-9 area. Thanks.
