One of the stock queries which crops up in this forum every few months is someone who has their papers but hasn't got to Chilwell yet asking what kit they should buy. The stock reply - which I am happy to abide by and, indeed, have passed on myself in the past - is 'don't, you get issued everything you need'. I notice the kit list in the joining instructions now says to basically bring all the kit you've been issued. This leads me to wonder...is there any point taking any of it to Chilwell in the first place? Could I in theory rock up with Mod 90, FMT600 and some spare undies in a bag and get everything else I might need issued on the spot? I'm not saying I'm going to do this necessarily, just curious to see what everyone else's slant on this was.
