Had a debate with another arrser about this the other night, couple of questions for you lot out there and could be a fun. No wahs here from me. Is it against any regs to travel in uniform to TAC and back home, or might it be a local decision (for part 1 or 2 orders)? If not, is there another good justified reason (that CO/OC would obv not have considered) not to anyway? If security state is not even remotely special then other than normal vigilence is there a good reason not to, or is the risk negligable? Scenario to look at: What would you do if you had your full issue of kit out with you, plus extra warm kit/webbing pouches/rations/whatever you would take etc and have returned from a weekend or even two week field ex or itd/mil skills weekend and you had nowhere secure to leave it at TAC. You have no personal transport, taxis/public transport is fine, cadging a lift not likely to happen. You are then locked out of your house (just for fun). You can add a camp bed if role means you'll use it often enough. There are no planks of wood, minefields or toggle ropes to hand - you need to be online by 2100, it's just passed 1600. A few of my ideas, not necesarily ones I'd use but some starters: 1. Pick up kit and walk/take transport home, gleaming boots, berret on, smile on face, 20/30/bedford kgs on my back. 2. Take a cab with kit to mainstreet near home, walk last few hundred meters or so - meaning you don't give out home address to random organisation. 3. Das bus/train There's some non kit ideas too but I'll let you explore them, just consider the amount of kit you'd have - an awfull lot, and what you've been briefed/trained on specifically. While we're here and I don't want to start another thread, are compression sacks for doss bags a crap idea and therefore should not be used??
