Really cool old military document!

It's a great insight into research that was going on in 1945 on behalf of the Royal Navy. One of the recommendations is that the Royal Marines would benefit from a system such as the Brynje mesh vest...........My understanding is that the Royal Marines and some British special forces did use Brynje up until about 2004. I'm not sure why they suddenly stopped, but it would be interesting to find out why.
So if there are any Bootnecks or SF boys out there who could shed light on this, I'd appreciate it (so long as it's not classified of course!).
Stop the press! I just found part 1 & 3 to go with Part 2!
