Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So I'm off to support a BG in Kenya and would like some opinions/experiences on the exercise as well as the AT package, plus some advice on what kit to take, both mil and civvie wise.
  2. Don't take too many civvies as you won't be needing them very much (PT kit notwithstanding). You may get a few days AT at the end depending on the needs of the BG. Pack as you would for an Op is the best advice I can give you. There is a MOB and some FOBs dotted round, some are semi decent but expect to live under a poncho too. Take 2 camelbaks if you have them as water supply can be a real issue. Take desert AND jungle boots as if you aint in the sand, you are in a quagmire.
