    SUSS - Sheffield University Speleological Society, contact details.

    Lost: full, kit-taped, SRT kit (Glaxy tape)

    Hey, A few months ago I lost my SRT kit, though I'm not entirely sure where. I've been busy despairing about it for a while, and should have posted here much earlier. I'd been to a variety of huts around the UK, but not used it: so there are a wide number of places it could be. It should be...
