  2. You get issued a pair at PCCBC why on Earth would you want to buy your own?

  4. "Sandhurst issue boots" are normal issue boots. Available from mil surplus stores, Cadet Direct, Silvermans and pretty much everywhere else ...

    Now, actual advice although I'm far too old to know anything about the rules at RMAS these days - get a set of proper insoles fitted to the pair you get issued - Supafeet Green are the benchmark. I actually paid for a set of the Green Custom ones for my last tour. Very nice (but they take a bit of getting used to.) And, as they don't show, the DS might let you keep them.
     
  5. You get given 2! 1 at PCCBC and 1 at commencement of the CC.
     
  6. Don't bother. You'll get issued more shoes and boots and trainers when you arrive than you can shake a stick at.

    You also get issued a really comfortable pair for parades.
     
  7. On issuing for size "Now remember these arnt meant to be comfortable..." happy days
