hi im back and have decided to include some tips for your kit. dont start arguing after the post if u dont like me or the post then tough shit. 1.As i am a royal fusilier i wear a hackle after every day, i have worn my beret i put hackle in a reinforced smarties tube reinforced with tape then blow in to it the hot air should blow the feathers and moisture should form the shape into the smarties tube. This saves buying new hackles, i have had mine for 4 months now. 2.if u have stable belts with brown leather on put quickshine brown on just freshens it up a bit. 3.one mod i have yet to do is to sew a rank slide on to the shoulder of my combat jacket so when shooting u can use it to support the sling i have also seen people pad the shoulder of their jacket tosoften recoil i dont bother with that cause i aint a wuss. 4.my favourite sew a hood on to ur jacket. 5.dont use starch on ur creases but soap makes them razor sharp and they dont go white. 6.get a micro fibre towl they dry quick and are small to pack. 7.put evreything in ur bergen in seperate bags preferably freezer bags. 8.dont use any other substance on ur boot except for polish if u dont no how to polish boots read other threads. 9.get another utility pouch on ur webbing to put rations in and basha making kit. some other tips 1.use ur common sense jerry cans with water in are to drink, then u wont ******* dehydrate. 2.Have good turnout it will impress my turnout is meant to be one of the best in the company. any more tips i will add but for now enjoy.
