Uniform Issue

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just out of interest, how much uniform and kit are you issued with at the start of Phase 1? And as for what may sound like a bit of a stupid question, when it comes to helmets, burgens, webbing etc is this equipment issued to you brand new or does it get handed to you as and when you need it like some reserve units?
     
  2. its all brand new and there is a lot of kit.
    that you will get.
     
  3. Bergans, webbing, roll mats etc are usually NOT new. All clothing is new. Why???
     
  4. The Army gives you everything you need for training. Anything else you may need is aval from the NAAFI. If you ask if your kit is new, the CPL will probaly laugh at you and tell you to F*ck off.
     
  5. Well, its not the type of question im likely to ask a Cpl i have to say! I was just wodnering if regular soldiers were issued the same shite as TA soldiers but i would presume its slighlty better kit.
     
  6. The kit is the same, you just get more clothing items.
