Done it myself, Catterick in the 80s. Spare socks were the only dry thing I had left

When those midges are after your blood, you will do anything to keep them off your skin.

I expect if the socks had been previously worn - and spent a few days fermenting in a damp bothy - they may work better than DEET..........................

Great, I've seen socks used for all sorts from gloves to arse wipes! but I must say I like this photo.
