Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My nephew is joining the RLC as a driver (the shame) and i was going to get him a few bits and pieces for basic.

    Ive already got him a shoe shine kit with decent brushes, polish etc from This Tribe, but was going to get him a good iron as well. Is it still the done thing to take your own to basic?
     
  2. I got list for basic recently and yeah you still take own iron
     
  3. Cheers all i needed to know
     
  4. If he is joining as a Junior then it would be Harrogate, if its adult then more than likely Pirbright....follow the link and click on relevant ATR/AFC and look at Pre arrival information...kit lists then pdf file on right....all except for ITC Catterick are generic JI's. As you would probably know get a good iron, it will probably be the most important thing he uses. Soldier Initial (Phase 1) Training - British Army Website
