Take all the kit you have been issued, make sure you have been issued everything that is on the kit list that has been sent to your unit.

Make sure that your belt kit has been put together and it fits you correctly as you'll be wearing it from more or less the start. most of w/e 1 is weapon training with some lectures thrown in and PT for the hell of it.

Learn the badges of rank and how to address the holders of said rank.

Iron your second set of combats as well and take them in a suit hanger for the Sunday.

... if the syllabus is the same as the one at my RTC - which it almost certainly will be - you'll do some fitness, have some non-demanding lessons and spend a night in the field.

Make sure you take all of your kit, despite whatever your unit tells you. Take wash and shave kit, spare shreddies / socks, a few £ in case. You'll also need a sense of humour.

Its the beginning of a great adventure, enjoy it.

It depends if RTC Altcar is up to speed and going with the revised CTP......w/e 1 is no longer in the field, Icebreaker is now in the more sensible place on w/e 2. If you take everything as has been stated then you'll have all you need, plus like LVH said haribo, smokes (if you do) and, to use my new phrase, any boo hoo kit...toilet roll would be a good one.
Notebook pens and pencils are all on the kit list as is a padlock.

We check the SuT kit on w/e 1 just to monitor what their units are doing kitwise and how they are treating the SuT, any trend that forms with diffy kit a memo goes to ITG and onwards....

roll mat = should already be on kit list and issued
bivy bag = should already be on kit list and issued
sleeping bag = should already be on kit list and issued(you will need this regardless becuase there is no bedding )
liner = doubt this is issued (I know we dont)

That's what the kit check is all about...if its not been issued, which it should have been then its noted, if it forms a trend.....but if it isn't issued then the SuT has to bring their own.

On the back of the joining instructions is a kit list which is to be signed by the stores person or recruiting team saying the SuT kit has been checked and is present, if it isn't we know who to name.
