DOB kit

Posted by Noah Brody on January 12, 2009 at 18:03

I have two separate questions. First, does anyone know the derivation of the term "DOB kit?" I picked up this usage for shaving kit long ago, but don't know it's origin. Also- a more vague question- my mother has been racking her brain for several weeks trying to recall the idiomatic expression that British soldiers in WW II used to describe their kit- their outfit and pack, etc- if I understand correctly. Anyone have thoughts?
