I assure you mate it is needed i've gotta fork out for a new s10 respirator next month and they cost alot.

Some even cover your laptop,digi cam and mp3 players, so its well worth it with the right company....which one though is the question i ask.
 
Certainly does. I do remember that if you left an item of kit skulking around and it didn't end up reappearing in the scran bag, you had to buy replacements (and, as a Junior at least, got punished of course), but that's all. Frankly I'm not sure I could have afforded insurance on less than £1 pocket money a week! I didn't even know what insurance was at 15! :roll:

As a householder I cover all my cameras and iPod when I travel on my household insurance but this may not help you if you don't have your own home. You could try contacting the Naval Families Federation who may be able to help you or try exploring the RN Community website, else hopefully someone on RR will be better able to help (I expect).

Well I'm told by a recently retired chief stoker that one should avoid NAAFI Insurance like the plague (yes the NAFFI does insurance now!), hmmm.

Have you tried E Bay?
You might dip in and find a Naval Officer with one for sale.
:lol:

I'm actually going through the process of claiming off my Naafi kit insurance. First claim in 9 years. I'll let you know how I get on with them.
