do you think it might be worth buying a pair
A) to practice polishing/bulling Not really, you will be taught all you need to know on this front.

B) to train/run in them? Don't run in boots to start with. You are not fit yet, and will mess yourself up. Practice walking yes, but in comfortable boots that you already own

Always keep a spare pair highly polished saves stress and trauma and gains you brownie points. Try polishing a pair of wet muddy boots and you will know what I am aiming at.

And where would you intend to "hide" this spare pair from the Div staff?

hmm I would have thought a extra pair of boots would be a bonus.

One for drill and one for getting muddy. As long as both pairs are broken in properly and your rough pair polished and cleaned regularly why would you have to hide them?

I know both the Army and the RAF actually reccomend you do this before thier Recruit Training - why would the navy be different?

Because it's the Royal Navy not the crabs or pongos. :oops:

So now we are into hiding boots are we. How the world has changed?

You used to get issued two pairs. One you kept for drill and one pair for doing the dirty stuff in which you still have to keep as clean.

So don't bother buying. Just wait to get issued the boots.

Thats an idea then you would have a pair you prepared earlier and a bit more time for other things (OH and also a spare pair) :D :)

For heaven's sake people!

You will be issued two pairs of boots. They are often uncomfortable, but get better. IF you have very bad feet you may get a biff chit for a slightly different pair to fit your clown feet.

When you finish you can go out and buy proper boots (I have 2 pairs of Altbergs which are the business, but my issued I use for normal work).

In the meantime, if you have an overwhelming desire to spend money go out and buy a couple of good supportive insoles; those made by 'SOLE' are excellent and you get 30% discount for forces. You may need to go up 1/2 a size to fit some insoles, but it is well worth the money, and can save your knees.

Happy? Good, now fuck off.
