Where can I get ahold of some surplus MTP kit uniforms and kit?
Mainly, you can't. Stuff goes diffy occasionally though, and you might find an item in a surplus store, once in a blue moon.

And no I'm an SI in the ACF...here come the jokes and piss takings? Any jokes and piss takings would probably be warranted if I had said I was in the army but I haven't. I'm no Walt lol.

Lert. I'm only asking because I keep leaving all of my uniform at your mums.

So if you're missing your necker and woggle why do you need some PCS?

There is a rake of stuff on fleabay and amazon, genuine issue and reasonable copies, not to mention cadet direct who are now selling grade 1 used PCS. Try googling.

Because we wear PCS. I thought that would have been obvious? Why would I ask for PCS if I didn't wear it? If I needed woggles and neckers I would have asked you directly.

The issued stuff is the same as regular army/TA are issued, to be fair, there is now more stuff issued to CFAV's than before including t-shirts, socks and fleeces, however, I'm not a great fan of the smocks, they are too bulky, slow drying, (especially the lower fleece lined pockets) and not waterproof for outdoors so it may be worth investing in something more practical for fieldcraft etc funds permitting.

Why do you need any more than two sets? Not having a go or anything, but its not like you're wearing it every day.

This is a ACF instructor we're talking about here. He/she would wear full rig to get the milk in from the front door. After checking of course that the neighbours or random passers-by were available so as to admire their 'military bearing'.

I see where you're coming from mate and don't worry I don't think you're Gavin a go lol. I personally do instruct almost nightly during the week at multiple detachments in my company and at our coy HQ. And I'm up for two weeks away and various other week to two week long courses throughout the year. So some spare kit would be great. I've come across some spare shirts so really I'm after some combats.

Before cs95 it was 2 sets of working dress and 2 sets of combats.
