    Stuff that never used to be on the joining instructions:

    Padlock (you'll be in a 28 man / woman room)
    Gloves - Grantham has a micro-climate that defies all known classification.
    Hat - See above.
    Boots - for command tasks.

    .....and don't forget your PT kit. Doing phys in your jeans will not be fun otherwise.
  8. Warm clothes, even when the sun's out its bloody freezing.

    Get a taxi number on the way in.
