The short story is I deployed 3 years ago. Due to go again soon, my QM has said if I bring in my old kit it will be exchanged for new stuff. But 3 years ago when I returned I was told to bin my old deserts (which barring the smock I duly did) and now they are saying that all of the desert kit was actually on my flick and I need to go diffy for my new Op Kit. Can someone give me a definitive answer on this as my CoC are arguing amongst themselves about it. Do I need to exchange my old Telic stuff for a new issue of gear for Afghan or do I get a complete re-issue? I leave in 3 months. Cheers guys. If the rules say I have to pay then I will cough up but I am not doing it on the whim of a civvy on the counter.
