Boot polish

Wondering if anyone can help me, im currently getting my bits and bobs together for Raleigh in a couple of weeks and stuck on what boot polish to get, can it be any brand of shoe polish or does it have to be this Leder-Gris brand, thanks

Just black polish, don't mix brands though as it comes out shite otherwise.
The shop at Raleigh sells black and brown polish (separate tins ;)), and before anyone starts, it's not the NAAFI anymore, it's a Costcutter!

A. Royals like @arcticfox042 would be using a soldiering iron.
He did, soldiering iron play on words, flux, :)
Aye - Perhaps @dapperdunn should stick with his eating irons?
soldering - the process that is used to melt and apply solder
soldiering - the thing a soldier does

I thought that @BreathingOutOnTheWayUp was being clever using a play on words to comment on Arctic Fox's exRM status(soldiering). Obviously I was wrong and you had done it purely by accident!

1. I thought that @BreathingOutOnTheWayUp was being clever using a play on words to comment on Arctic Fox's exRM status(soldiering).

@dapperdunn - By trying too hard you have out-thought yourself::

1. Was/is correct.
2. Negat Accident - 'twas strictly intentional, as spotted by @Salty-Dog & @WreckerL.

BTW, In your trade you'll already be all about on 'reflux' but if you still have that dictionary out on Temp. Loan try looking up "Flux" (Clue - WRT soldering). Call me brazen but try brazing vs braising, too. :WINK:WINK:
 
Poor OP......by the time he gets to the last post, he will be running a hot bath preparatory to opening a vain or two.....:)

The application of Blackfriars Dark Oak was only applied to the toe caps of parade boots, not to working boots (DMS or steaming batts...) Pongos used to bull the whole boot......The method of applying the Blackfriars remains a secret of the armourer's branch, for me to break this trust would mean that I would never again be admitted to the annual reunion of the engineers of death.........
