The part of the boots normally done are the toe cap and heels(outside only).

Sleeves up or down usually depends on the Unit, most go to Jumpers in Winter. IIRC.

Marines are from the USA, Royal Marines are UK.. :wink:

Jumpers....jumpers....fcuking jumpers....Woolie pullies tsk.

I only ever did toecaps on drill boots, used jacobean oak varnish and not polish, but as a cadet or Nod he'll have to use polish.

Sleeves.. What rig? I cant see sleeves being rolled down in any rig unless another layer of clothing is being worn on top.
