I would rather pose this question to ARRSE than bother my busy overworked Recruiting Sergeant. Being a keen shooter the Army has always been a healthy interest. I want to know if I should take my ear defenders to Phase 1? They say take only whats on the list but its surely par for the course..... ? My worry is wasting perfectly accountable money for essential items when I've already got them. Will it be considered Gucci' kit, therefore, not essential?
