HMS Raleigh kit muster

Just wondering if anyone knows how many pairs of underwear / socks out of your kit are actually used for the kit musters? Just thinking of getting brand new spares for the musters and being more prepared.

Thanks in advance

Bring three extra pairs of boxers that can either be presented in your locker day-to-day or out for a kit muster.

Keep the pairs you wear in your personal locker (clean!).

Don't worry about socks.

I thought it was 3 for kit muster but weren't sure, will keep 3 extra fresh new ones to the side then!

Thanks mate

Keeping kit aside especially for kit musters is not a good idea. It doesn't show that you are able to look after your kit and maintain it to the standard that is required. It just shows that you know how to cheat. Having extra kit is frowned upon and you will get caught out.

It was just a tip I was told off a few serving people. Won't bother with it then it's no difference to me I can handle ironing a few extra pairs of underwear lol thanks for info

Also is it ok to take extra bits which are not on the kit list like Deep Heat spray for after phys sessions etc or the sports ibuprofen gel? Thinking of packing them I'm in my first aid kit incase. Or is this a no no? Cheers

Agreed. Free socks have kept me serving in a Naval uniform for 37 years.

Greedy people want FRIs. Socks. That's all it takes. I'm easy pleased.
Surly U joined in the days of KUA, so have not been free for 37, unless you are the odd sock collector?
