Absolutely correct - RTMC have been directed to withdraw all DCC (Desert Combat Clothing) from reservists for re-issue to future TELIC deployments. Seems eminently sensible to me and will stop all the whingers saying I wasn't issued the right kit!!
correct a mundo, a container has been found in the dock over flowing with dessies but due to them being of sub standard (cheapest is not always the best) they could not be issued, Thats why chilwell needs your kit. Anyway you would only use it for gardening
It would have been nice to have some dessies to hand in at Chillwell. We had a small official issue just prior to leaving the Gulf, but most people only had personal purchase. I wouldnt worry about the Greens too much, its the boots that you need. No matter how good your admin your feet will eventually fall apart in blak boots. Take plenty of your own cotton socks and foot powder, and get hold of some desert boots.
