You'll just learn from the 1,225,236,964,100 mistakes you will make and will be very uncomfortable. You will also get no sleep and probably lose most of your kit (or the kit you've remembered to bring with you)

Lets hope its raining too.

I'd be very surprised if you dont get bumped at least once during the night. Make sure you have warm kit as you'll freeze your nuts off on stag at 03:00 hours

Only have one thing out of your Bergan at any one time,
Lots of Haribo,
Hipflasks are a must,
Don't bother using your Messtins to cook stuff. That black cup with your waterbottle makes it much easier,
Tie your bungees onto the Poncho in advance,
Make sure everything is waterproofed,

Take a Thinsulate wooly hat, four extra bungees and decent tent pegs. Don't take bright disco bungees, you'll not be allowed to use them.

Do NOT put one of those nifty flasks in your ammunition pouches unless you want to suffer.

I'm being an idiot and hoping the person i have to set up with will have pegs! and i have two bungees, i was under the impression we get issued two so i only bought 2 and got issued none!

Make sure that you do not bother to heat your rations through fully. Cold corned beef hash does you more good.

Also, make sure that you get a brew on just before you go to stag on. No-one will mind, and the hexy will cheer you up at 3 am.

Good luck!

Do whatever the fcuk you want. If anyone questions it, just stamp your feet and threaten to leave.

make sure you take your hexi cooker and your brew kit to your stap point
brew up there you will be given top marks for making a brew whilst stagging on, oh dont forget to go back to harbour area and pass your brew about, buddy buddy system they love stuff like that..
