Hi, Just wondered if anyone could give me the lowdown on the issued kit for Op Herrick. I have just been called up for reserve service and I am due to depart soon. I heard from a mate who is still serving that these days the QM's hurl kit at you when deploying so wasnt sure what I would need to buy, if anything. I know for sure I cant deploys with my reserve scale! The main stuff on my list of things to buy are as follows: Boots (was thinking of LOWAs), Gloves, warm kit (I remember the desert can be a bit cold at night, after Acclimatization) head torch (but heard this might be issued now?) belt kit or chest rig? and anything else anyone knows to be essential. Thats my main concerns, would also like to know about taking my laptop..although I am not sure if I am gonna be stuck in one of the FOB'S. Thanks alot.
