    Wearing non-issued gear.

    I was only issued 1 DPM uniform, but I have a two week camp, will I get abuse for wearing uniform I bought as opposed to issued?
    Probably a stupid question but there you go! :P

    Are you a recruit? Then most other people will be in the same boat. You'll be able to get your uniform washed. Dont waste your money on buying things that should/will be issued to you.
    Everyone who's ever loved you was wrong.

    Don't buy Irish (and especially not foreign) DPM kit.

    On Day 2 ask your section commander

    Go to your unit section commander. Ask for 2nd shirt, trousers, t-shirt, by all means buy socks, plain dark green t-shirts with no logos on them if possible. Don't wear football socks. Go to tkmaxx.

    Don't wear non issue NON rish dpm. If you already have irish army issue clothing you bought, please note its illegal to sell or purchase Irish army uniforms. However if you have access to spare Irish army trousers and shirt, bring them.

    Your unit has a CQ (prob 4 after the reorg)? Not sure of recruit scale of issue, the info is out there somewhere though but if you're entitled to two uniforms your CQ can and should sort this out for you.
