I've answered your post on the army speak thread in the Naafi sweetie.
(We'll be in trouble with the bosses if we mess up the wrong forums!)
There's loads of slang and British lingo translated there for you..feel free to ask about any other abbreviations or odd expressions there
Magic maybe this thread could be used for any old type of 'bone' question that needed to be asked to avoid starting a new one so here goes with my effort...
I'm about to hand in my kit to my old unit before transferring to my new one, what do I need to hand in ? I've figured this could involve my webbing, inf bergan, No 2's etc but what exactly do I need to hand in and what should I keep ?
Thought I better ask to get an impartial (non storeman related) answer to this! (If they had their own way I'd be handing it all in "Stores are for storing hence give me all your kit..... now!")
I recently did some kit chasing for my sqn (tip: never let a storeman know you've got someone's number if they are chasing kit). He basically wanted everything that was on the database as issued and having a flick. However, the priority was of course belt kit, bergan and sleeping system as these things are costly. Items worn next to the skin not so important.
Don't delay hand-in. There was a visit by the police and when the kit was handed back, they recieved a bill for all items missing!!
Ah that's why I've been used as Unit Direcory Enquiries recently... oops! Thanks a lot everyone for the advice, now I can sleep soundly that my Storemen aren't gonna feck me over with the knowledge I now have in my ARRSEnal.
