On the scrounge

#1
My eldest has just started Cadets and he's in the process of getting kitted out. On the list are boots, obviously, 95 kit, Webtex survival kit, pistol holder (not sure why that's on there)

The question i have, is there anyone out there who can assist around the WF14 post code, Port or Beer funds will be donated to.

What kit list is this? The only kit you are supposed to be buying for him is boots. Everything else is issued.

It's Air Cadets, it was the Ex who text me the list. I thought the same, but they've only provided the Barrack Dress!

So he's been issued blue working dress but needs the money for greens. Sort of makes sense, although I'm pretty sure they dont shoot pistols in the space cadets.

Will the ATC be getting mtp minime size to fall in line with the ACF when undertaking green activity?
The nice chaps at Condor, let the cadets fire the Browning pistol and MP5 on a fam visit. Long time ago though.

I just might have to accompany him on Friday, the WO/Civvy in charge is a bit of a Walt. Ball ached him about the bull on his shoes, which were done courtesy of myself.

Ah, if an air bear that explains the uniform. As mentioned above they aren't scaled for combats yet need them for ranges etc. I have no idea why he would need a pistol holster. Even the survival kit is a bit much!

Air cadets need a set of combat 95's ( smock shirt trousers belt and pair of black boots, webbing and Gucci little items are not required
Most they'll need is a 35l daypack or a full size bergan if doing DofE. For camps a holdall will suffice.

When I was a young cadet on Merseyside we had stores packed to the rafters with DPM as 95's had just come in and there was plenty of surplus. Im sure the same will now be true for cs95 with MTP coming in. The unit must be either lazy or thick if they cant get hold of kit.

Seriously?

Cheeky ****! I suggest you attend on friday and fill him in.

It would have been easier for him to go to the ACF as opposed to the ATC, but the Ex is extremely anti green.

When I was a young cadet in East London we had stores packed to the rafters with 44 patten webbing, tin lids and v neck 1940's jumpers as now worn by the Indian Army! We even had green garbadine smocks as worn by the Commandos during the way...and that was 1978! We finally got lightweights, woolley pulleys, barrack trousers and a combat jacket in 1980.

......we had all of the above including those smocks in 1975 in SE London, although to be fair, when I joined the same ACF 'gang' (85th Cadet Bty, Enersdale Road, off Hither Green lane, Lewisham) in 1974, we were still in BD.

I can give him 3 sets of DPM 95s and a pair of (ancient) Danner boots. Yours if you can collect or pay postage and packing. My postcode E14. PM me if interested. Only thing is I'm 6ft with size 10S boots!
