Do me a favor and do not upload my content as your own. I took the picture, I purchased the Cryo and the L10, I did the edits. Take it down and show some integrity. I don’t put in the work and create content for someone else to claim as theirs. Do your own work.

Team Rubicon Patch Update

I want to start by saying a massive thank you to everyone who demonstrated their support by pre-ordering the Pack Config fundraising patch for Team Rubicon. Thanks to your amazing support we have passed the halfway mark of our aim to sell 500 patches to raise money for this worthy cause.

The patches are now currently in production and above is a proof of what they will look like. I’m sure you’ll agree that they look pretty awesome. With only a little over 200 patches left, now is the time to order to avoid disappointment. 

Please do your part to help us reach this goal by pre-ordering your patch(es) today. Orders can be made in the sidebar of any of the pages on our site, or for more details please visit our store using the link below. 

If you are visiting us from a mobile device, please click on the icon (see below image) in the top right hand corner of the site to find the purchasing panel.

To help illustrate the full reach of their work across the global, I’ve included an image of the TR Field Operations map that details their deployments over the past 4 years. To find out more about the work of TR, please visit their Field Operations page or their website.

1916 private soldier, Battle of the Somme
A photographer, Thom Atkinson, has documented 13 military kits in a series called ‘Soldiers Inventories’. I’ve picked a few to share with you guys over a couple of posts so they can be enjoyed individually, in all their glory. It will also show which are the most popular kits. 
By its very nature, war requires a soldier to be prepared for every possible eventuality. The sheer amount of gear that is demanded by this level of preparedness means good pack configuration is a necessity. It is really interesting to see how a soldiers carry has developed over time, so I encourage you all to check out the full set here. 
Thanks to thenewartemis for their post that reminded me about seeing this in their post here. Below is a breakdown of what is featured above:
Hob nail boots
Puttees (for binding trousers around lower legs)
Socks
Shirt and vest
Gas mask container
Gas mask
Non Commissioned ranks hat
Notebook and service warrant card
Battledress tunic – note stripes on sleeve denote rank
Mess tins
Tin opener and can of food, appears to be tinned stewed apple
Oxo cubes
Bar of chocolate
Bar of soap
Water flask
Belt
Leather belt with leather pouches for kit
Haversack
Longjohn under garments, battledress trousers and braces
Boot polish and two brushes
Blankets
Dog tags – imprinted with name, rank and service number
Trench club – for breaking heavy ground for trenching into and for fighting the enemy at close quarters
Entrenching tool handle; often the handle was customised with lumps of metal and made into a trench club
Leather pouch for entrenching tool
Field dressing
Cigarettes and matches
Mess kit containing knife, fork spoon, shaving brush, soap and brass button polisher (slid underneath battledress button to protect BD from polish)

Cloth for pull-through for cleaning barrels internally
Bullet
Ammunition belt, containing clips of bullets
Penknife and pull through cord
Entrenching tool spade; sometimes soldiers sharpened the edges of the spade and used these to fight
Lee Enfield 303 bolt action rifle. It was developed at the beginning of the twentieth century as an attempt to create a standard rifle for both the infantry and soldiers on horseback. As it turned out it was ideally suited to conditions in the trenches – it wasn’t good at firing over long distances, but was really robust and could stand up to the mud. It was still used right up into the 1950s.
Bayonet – to be attached to fore end of rifle
Helmet – with cover
Fob watch, personal effects. Officers tended to have pocket watches more so than infantry soldiers
Coins – possibly local francs or similar, personal effects
Scabbard for bayonet, worn on leather belt around waist over hip
5 round ammunition clips – ready to load magazine of 303 rifle
