Sunblock - info needed

#1
Quick question from civilian medic - I asked MOD but they never got back to me.

On service in tropics/hot climates - do you get sunblock supplied or do you have to buy it yourselves?

Also do you get set any regs about having to use it or not?

many thanks

It is supplied mate. Its factor 25 and the RSM & a bus load of QA Nurses arrive to rub it in. Sunburn is a self inflicted injury. If you buy your own Boots Soltan you can claim it back via JPA.

Yes, you do get issued it. Regs are not so much about having to use it, but about not burning. I think you can theoretically get charged for getting sunburned can't you? Perhaps someone could confirm that.

Yes you can get charged for it. Seen it done plenty of times - usually only if you end up having to go on light duties or get bedded down as the individual has made him/herself unfit for duty.
