issued kit

#1
Im joining Raleigh in the colder months (october) and wondered if i would have to take my own woolies (gloves,hats etc.) also do they issue you with a jacket e.g gortex.... just thought i'd ask so that if they dont i can get organised.
:thanks: thanks Jord :thanks:

you get issued a jacket. you only get issued gloves for when you go off base as i do not beleive you can wear them on base. any way you should be able to stand the cold, be a man not a mouse for fcuk sake.

Dear me, we don't want you catching a chill Lofty, good thinking. All those government cutbacks, the Navy's bound to scrub around issuing the winter woollies.

Make sure you tuck your vest into your underpants so's you don't catch the collywobbles and ask your Mum to knit you a balaclava, just in case.

Jeez.

Uniform??? Does that not mean something like "all the same"

From memory you will get issued what you need. If you don't get issued it, you dont wear it whilst in uniform with others and you really wont want more clothing than necessary when you get kit musters.

I seem to remember when you do get shore leave you go out in rig anyway.

Just get used to being cold - wearing a bobble hat under your beret or titfer wont quite look right.
