A mate of mines ald has just passed out as a Para (TA) he is getting ready for AFG. The lad himself is rearing to go (sounds like me 30 years ago) His dad asked me about buying his lad kit (the dad isnt short of a quid). I said, perhaps, that his lad could get himself his own body armour. If that is kosha advice from me. What should dad get for his lad? This is all after my time, but I thought I read (I think in the Telegraph) that the Osprey kit wasnt worth the rations. Grateful for all advice.
