Basic Training

#1
My cousin is joining the RLC soon, and leaves to start his training in September. Are there any essential bits of kit that he could do with that aren't on the usual joining instructions?

Thanks for any suggestions.

What's on the list?

When I joined up *cough* years ago all I ever seemed to need extra was boot polish, toiletries, brasso, dusters, washing powder, stationary, sewing kit, underwear and change to phone home.

The issue kit has improved since then so I can't see them needing any extra military stuff.

Tell him to pack a very large sense of humour.

He should have got a list of things to take, best thing i can think of is baby bungees as everybody nicks them off each other, Plenty of polish, few dusters and a bulling rag from silvermans, the rest will all come apparent.

When asked by anxious parents visiting our depot of what their little darlings should bring, I always said, the most expensive iron and ironing board that money can buy, and only Kiwi polish.

Hope this helps.

Baggy.
