Couple of questions about basic.

#1
I start Basic on Monday and got everything on the list and am now wondering how particular the guys there will be.

1) Swimming trunks or speedo? Goth both, not sure which I am meant to take.

2) With the bungee cords a few are tri-colour (Black/Khaki/Dark green)- will they be ok or do I need to replace them with dark green specifically?

If it is relevant ATC Pirbright.

Don't worry about swimming shorts mate, any will do as long as there not baggy. Bungie's I wouldn't worry about either you get issued them there.
Good luck for training - I passed out on Friday :)

Just to answer.

1) You need to take your mankini, as used in the field. It is used in the field in Islamic countries to ensure frontal modesty, but allow flexibility. As it is Ramadam when you start basic, you will require the mankini so as not to offend your fellow muslim recruits.

2) You will need florescent yellow bungees as you don't want people tripping up over them in the dark. If you can get luminous ones, thats even better, if you can't then then hang some of these from your bungees.
