Ask your parents they might have it lying around, it’s really the number they’re after I think.

@nofate . NHS Medical Cards are no longer issued in England AFAIK. However, if you have been registered with a GP your record with the practice will show your own NHS number and this is what the Army want.

Can I take hair clipper to phase 1 so I will cut my hair by my own?
Why? It costs £5 for a haircut, you’re likely not allowed and you’ll just balls it up if you do it yourself no matter what it looks like.

Under the Optional part, there’s a Pen knife. Should I take one with me just in case?
Yeah no problem.
Just remember the army term "pen knife" refers to the biggest saw-backed, hollow-handled death knife you can lift with one hand.

How about stuff like washing powder? Is it provided? If yes, is it a limit to use it? Do I need to pay for it?

They give you kit and you wear what they tell you for each pt session, including ironing the t shirts that melt when you have it any higher than low.

You should buy at least 2 each black and brown polish and 3 pairs of brushes as the new bulk kit purchase doesn’t include it anymore. At least mine didn’t a few weeks ago.

One brown for daily polish, one for exercise

One black for brush one for bulling.

Can you elaborate on the cash needed for tracksuit. Is it taken out of the 120?
You can take it out of the £120 but personally I brought £200, just don’t go waving it around.

£48 for the tracksuit
£58 for the general items
£10 for haircuts
£116 total

Plus you’ll need some extra for polish etc if you don’t buy it before. You’ll want to go to the shop before pay day for crap anyway so taking a few bob more won’t hurt. Think the stuff I’ve bought so far is polishing stuff, trouser twisters, a lock knife, sniper tape (******* useful), pads of paper, foot powder and a fuckton of food.
