This isint true mate ive never heard it mentioned and they actually advise you not to take belt kit if your travelling on trains etc theres no need they give you it there all you use is a ammo pouch!

When I did mine we had to bring everything, including magazines, cleaning kits and slings. Those who did not bring the required kit did not have it issued to them. They had to beg and borrow. If they couldnt get it they failed. (Of course we managed to get them through.....just).
So yes, preperation is the key to the AI's course.
Also be prepared to be outside on most nights, as you couldnt swing a cat in that bar
Ranger_Danger said:Frimley Park sends out a comprehensive set of Joining Instructions to your County who will doubtless pass them on to you.
Currently on the arrival briefing you are issued with a plastic bag containing Magazines, Sling, Cleaning Kit.
Most people seem to take their own webbing but it is available for issue should you need it.
Take appropriate clothing for bar and for Dinner Night.
Take an up to date JSP 535
Ensure your Fieldcraft and M&C knowledge are up to date.
Taking smart kit for the Friday Drill Test is good skills although you can do same 95's should you wish.
A very good course, enjoy it.
