Not unless you're still skewing the averages ;)

Not anymore! And I'm actually slimming down now that I'm not serving ;D

You work in supply and you call the new "boots, general purpose" the Mk4?

Yes Yes I do I'm wear a Pair of them now, If I was told wrongly I do apologize. However the Topic is on MK 3's and I'm still waiting on a stock code so I could confirm and answer the question of this thread.  :waiting:

Instead of the thread going on how we have 1000's of sizes for dozen or so types of boots and never have enough to satisfy the common sized man.  :deadhorse:

 Sorry if I sounded off like a mod but I am a subject matter expert on the matter, and will take responsibility for what I have (some) control over being handling and storage of defence materials (incl, clothing.)

I think we use the term expert a bit too readily in the CF.

Tip from an armour crewman (not a supply SME):

1. unlace your boot
2. pull tongue of boot forward
3. look at description of boot on tag

If it says Mk4 then I am very mistaken but I suspect it won't.  Please let me know.

Mine were inked in so no tag, however to settle this side bar for those with din access http://dgmssc.ottawa-hull.mil.ca/DTICS/SITE/CGCS_Details_e.asp?NSN=843020A035157 granted these use a local purchase stock code they are in the system.

and for the Grand finally.

http://dgmssc.ottawa-hull.mil.ca/DTICS/SITE/CGCS_Details_e.asp?NSN=8430218724291 to http://dgmssc.ottawa-hull.mil.ca/DTICS/SITE/CGCS_Details_e.asp?NSN=8430218724327

And doing a basic computer check followed by a physical check... we have Boots, Combat (MARK III;CANADIAN FORCES; LEATHER; BLACK; HIGH; LACE FASTENING;SIZE 4-1/2-5D to 13-13-1/2F)

There's 36 size and we're holding stock in 27 sizes, and 9 sizes mostly between size 8 1/2 to 11 having the Zeros.


Hope this answers tje question.

Did you skip over the "STATUS:  Item is "Cancelled-Duplicate" (Converted)"?

So tell me again you stock MkIV boots?

It was a duplicate NSN which happens.  If you look at the dates of when the two NSNs (click on the other NSN in the CGCS) were entered, they are only seperated by a week or so.  The system considered them MKIV boots and just updated the CGCS with more detail leaving out the MkIV bit.  Regardless of what you want to call them I remember them being called MkIV.  I remember bemoaning the loss of my beloved MKIIIs while reciepting some of these boots while doing some OJT in Winnipeg.  What I don't remember nor do I care really is if we still have them or call them MkIV as they were Shyte.
