When I attended ATR Pirbright for my recruit selection, I noticed that there were many recruits wearing the staple belts. Most from what I could see, were recruits wearing the RLC staple belts. I pressume they can wear the staple belts as soon as they pass off the square and get their cap badge and can wear the full CS95 kit. I'm suprised the army allows them to wear staple belts as its not always easier to identify who is a recruit and who is not, also, doesn't it give the recruit the idea that he/she is already in!!! Finally, I should hopefully be going to Blandford for phase 2 and have heard that all phase 2 recruits have had their staple belts taken off them, also they will not be wearing CS95 but the green bottoms and scratchy tops???
