  1. Hi im going on exercise with the OTC and im trying to limit the amount of kit i take its supposed to be cold and dry this weekend and were going to Bramley. Im tempted to bin the waterproof trousers and any spare trousers for that matter, is this wise? and secondly issued boots or magnum boots (though someone told me there a bit crap)?

    cheers guys the ex is tomorrow so a speedy reply would be much appreciated.

  5. beer lots of beer
  6. **** sock - oh and a hip flask of whiskey :thumleft:
  7. that should be wa nk sock and hip flask of whiskey :thumright:
  8. Obviously booze will be taking up room why do you think im binning the waterproof trousers!
  9. A tin of sardines.
  10. It's only a weekend exercise. Experiment as much as you like. Have a long think about what you think is best, note down your reasons and head off. When you come back, look at your notes and see which things worked out and why. Was your reasoning correct? This is a good way to assess how to make choices about kit. Exercises are so you've got it right by the time you go to war.
  11. Oh and I'd take a pair of thermal glove liners for under your long cuff gloves.

    As it's an exercise with OTC, Red Trousers, Yellow Shirt, Green V Neck.

    And...Porn lot and lots of lovely porn
  13. magnums in this weather ? isn't that a bit mad ?
  14. w/proof trousers take up very little room, & are an extra layer on your lower half depending how cold/what you are doing/tactical situation.
    the golden rule for in the field mate - be prepared!

    it will probably be rather cold, & with magnums being a warm weather boot & good for around camp, I'd go with the issue assault boots or some other all leather boot.

    beer is good too!
  15. Take your mum. Get's her out of the house.
