  1. Hi all,

    First time to the site so bare with me.

    I've recently joined the TA and believe that issue 1 of kit consists on 1 of everything. Not practical really so i'm looking to build on it as much as i can. Can any of you guys give me some steer as to the best (ligit) avenue to go down for purchasing 95 DPM shirts, trousers and t-shirts.

    In addition as only 1 set of boots are being issued can you recommend an alternative boot for my second (field) pair.

    Cheers folks.

  3. Hear that, any idea on the usual amounts issued and timescales?

    What would you recommend boot wise?

    Issue boots until you have finished CMSR

    Your Recruit Training bods will be able to tell you when to expect issue 2.

  5. Thanks chap, appreciate the response.
  6. Ergh issue boots f**king hate them.
  7. You'll only need to think about extra kit when you get to part 1B and C. It makes life a lot easier if you have an extra pair of trousers (or two), a shirt and a field jacket. Loads of tee shirts (saves washing too often) and a few extra water bottle pouches for your webbing. Everything else will be given to you FOC.

    Uniform can be bought from many on line stores such as Silvermans etc.
  8. Thanks buddy. Thats a weight off my mind... just got to get through selection now!!!!!
