Don't let your unit off the hook - make them get the kit. It is in the system and if you're scaled for it, you should have it. There is nothing that grips me more than bad unit supply before deployment.

I remember someone saying something like that in Jan 2003. "....Don't worry...you be issued it in theatre....". Desert CS95, body armour, desert boots, solar showers, ammunition......... Still it tunred out alright in the end...:D

chimera - what exactly was your point there?
I said 'don't let them off the hook' and get it before you deploy. You're intimating that any deficiencies will be issued in theatre (as the standard excuse). My point is not to stand for that excuse and urging Chris to resolve this before he deploys.
Confused of the Joint Supply Chain.

There is absolutely no shortage of camelbaks. If the desert ones run out (few and far between) you will be issued with the temperate DPM. If you do not have one before deployment someone is failing to do their job. If you let me know by e-mail the circumstances I will tell you exactly who will issue yours

I've been issued temperate camelbak and assault vest by my stores, I take it I should have had desert? I asked them and they said the temperate one would do, any ideas?

No my point is to support you. If you dont get it before deployment, you will never get it.

Same old same, some shiny arse not pulling their (fat arse) weight and sorting kit out for the troops.
The Sun newspaper will carry such stories of troops being shafted with glee mate.
