Basic training kit


I have all my kit ready for my intake In a few weeks except one item: a white permanent marker. any one have any guidance on getting the correct one?


Lantern Swinger
Can get them on amazon mate. Get a few of them if i was you they run out quick and people seem to get sticky hands around them. Also try Ryman if you have one near you. Sometimes referred to as paint pens i think.


War Hero
I've often heard tell of this legendary white permanent marker & am curious...

Is it on your kitlist, provided by the AFCO?

If not, from whence does this requirement spring? (The AFCO joining letter kitlist is produced by HMS Raleigh).


jay jay I have the laundry marker, however I can't find the White one. and proud mum, it's a good idea however it says white on the list

Proud Mum

The silver sharpie looks white when you write on dark coloured clothes, I know it's ok because my lad only passed out of Raleigh in October.
They don't care what you use as long as it marks your black socks etc, but as I said the other ones wash out so you need to keep remarking but not the sharpie.
Good luck Flinty.
