Colourful pens, maybe a pencil and a rubber. Ohh and a ruler as well.
must have taken you hours to think of that, ot were you taking a break from wacking off over the trannie para.

thanks for the advice i will now go out and buy some "colourful" pens. *********

Or more usefully....

12" metal rule, not plastic. If you have plastic, you will take nicks out of it with your scalpel and it will be no use.
Flexi-rule for arcs
Good quality fine drawing pens - 0.25mm will be ideal, 0.5mm a bit too thick. You can get disposable ones for under a tenner.
Ditto propelling pencils. They need the lead to fit tightly into the nib so the plastic cheapos are no good.
New, clean, good quality eraser

Sniper9 you should have said in Brunei I could have given you templates, oh and yeah what duke said and maybe some masking tape, the decorating kind to stick your traces/ templates to map boards.

Why don't you ask one of your mates.

Oh Right, I see.

In addition to Dukes advice, I would bring:-
a spiral bound A4 note pad for all the lecture notes
coloured pencils for sketch maps
different hardness drawing pencils, 2H, HB etc to suit your drawing style
a box of A4 Acetate for RASP/EASP sketch map info layers
compass with an adjustment wheel for neat L109 marking and protractor - tech drawing kit

If you are really keen, you can scan the individual Sennybridge ranges to JPEG format then take a colour printer to reproduce them for area in general maps.

WH Smiths has all of this stuff and is a quick trip down town away, you avoid paying through the nose at the shop on camp and it gives you a reason to get out of Dering Lines (not that you'll need one)

You're a clumpet. I've never been on a course where I was expected to bring something that wasn't listed on the joining instructions. Judgeing by you immature reaction to some of the posts, I would guess I've completed a fair few more courses than you.

Sniper9, is that what you hope to be when you grow up? Maybe you haven't got joining instructions because the course is for NCOs and not insolent little ******* turds.

dingerr,

Have you done the LFTT course, or are you just in full on gobbing off mode today? If you have, fine - why not help the bloke out. If you haven't, why not just leave it alone?

I have done the course, and the JIs are only reasonably useful. They tell you to bring drawing equipment for traces, sharp pencils etc. Unfortunately, they don't give you the real detail of which bits will make the unbelieveably frustrating task of drawing and redrawing traces and templates over and over again that little bit easier. I took the stuff on the JIs and ended up going shopping again to get the bits that you really need.

what a tit! gone on then, list them! Not bad gobbing off for a cadet instructor who has most likely touched more kids than fritzel.

I know Dingerr can fight his own battles but i suggest you do a little thread searching on Dingerr's history before you throw accusations like that around.
He first comment was to highlight they should be in the JI's, which we now know isnt very detailed, but you immediatly come back with "bell-end" which to be fair is a little childish!
 
#18
if they were in the JI i wouldnt have asked, and with the well thought out comments he came out with, whose being childish, all wanted was some info, JIs from brecon are not that fantastic as any one who has got them knows. As for the JPEG mapping, i take it the only place to get that is defence mappping

Are you mistaking Dingerr for Therealbigdizzle?
 
#20
Yes, and I referred you to the joining instructions, but instead of just saying, 'they're shit' you proceeded to act the Internet hard man on more than one post.

Look at my avatar knob chops, how man AIs wear that - none. How many ammo incidents that occur during LFTT are attended by someone wearing it - errr all of them. You need to square away your attitude young man, because if you carry that chip on your shoulder into day to day life, you'll find a pace stick rammed up your arse and then be ridden around like a bicycle.
