  1. Hi.

    I've just passed out of basics at Pirbright and me n the lads are trying to find out if we can wear our own boots at Larkhill for phase 2 training. I've got a pair of Lowa Combats on reserve. Any definate gen on this would be much appreciated.


  2. Why? Too cold for your standard combat highs? Not ally enough?

    TBH, I can't remember that we restricted their use (way beck when I was DS at 24), but I expect they can be worn if you go on ex, on the gun park etc. Otherwise it might be CBH as they are smarter and can be brought to a high shine. I know that sounds ****, but there is no real need for them at 24 Bty.
  3. No (iirc)

    Ps: It's never worth standing-out at Depot unless your an exceptionally fcking good soldier
  4. Unless it is a medical reason then i doubt that you will be allowed to wear non issue boots.
    You will not be insured for lower leg injuries if you wear the boots that are non-issued.
    I know that AFC(H) the JS are only allowed to wear issued boots.
    You may get away with them on exercise but it will be down to the PS.
  5. why would you wear someone elses boots??
