just quick question to all is anyone aware as to weather we are allowed to take our own kit on weekend such as gas burners
not sure if this is allowed or if you are only allowed to use isssue kit during trainning
It is more ofteor not a case of out of sight out of mind, barracks is barracks, the field is the fiels. However you do need to be taught how to use the issue kit as when the shit hits the fan that's all your Q man will get to you.
Once you'ce been shown it should be up to your DS on how they play it.
warm kit.. a touchy subject, again out of sight etc. If it's vaguely military in colour then go for it.... too much paperwork is involved about dead recruits or hypothermiia cases!!
