Bomb proof boxers

Bomb proof boxers

THEY’RE a fitting Christmas present for Our Boys in Afghanistan – BOMB-PROOF boxer shorts.

The £60 Kevlar-lined pants will help save privates – and corporals and sergeants – from Taliban blasts.

Wives and girlfriends desperate for their men to return from the war zone in
one piece are snapping up the boxers to send out for Christmas.

The lightweight shorts, worn under normal combat gear, shield the groin
from the effects of Improvised Explosive Devices – where standard-issue body
armour does not.

IEDs are responsible for most deaths and serious injuries in Afghanistan.  The boxers were developed by Cardiff-based firm BCB International.

Boss Andrew Howell said: “We believe they will make a real difference.”

A Campaign to send Christmas gift boxes to 22,500 members of the armed forces serving abroad was launched by charity Operation Christmas Box yesterday.
