    Normally when lads from the Wing go on "green Army" courses they are expected to wear the same kit as the rest of us mere mortals.The Gucci kit gets left in the unit until the course is over.

    AFAIK the Infantry Platoon Sgts course are trialing some new kit.And yeah.The GSBA report recommended a helmet upgrade.(Four point harness,upgraded ballistic protection,integrated NVG mount etc)
