    webbing - what to put where

    Hi
    There was a pullout in Connect just before christmas. It was aimed at people going for ARW selection, but it had a suggested list of what to put in each pouch/pocket when on the ground (mags, spare clothing, food, tacaides, model kit, etc, etc).

    Now would some kind soul have a copy they could scan in and post here?

    And have ye any comments on what they suggested??

    Kit-List

    Ok people here some of it, take in mind that this kit list is for soldiers going on Ranger selection! and we as reservist don't get issued big bregens or rocket pouchs. Also anything with a * is to kept waterproofed.

    SMOCK:

    Top Left Pocket: Pencils,Compass,Tac-Aid,Torch,Waterproof-makers*,Whistle.

    Top Right Pocket: Combat Survival Tin,High Energy Food* ie. marsbars-boiled sweets,Lighter*,Spoon.

    Bottom Left Pocket: Bush Hat*,Leather Fingerless Gloves*.

    Bottom Right Pocket: Laminated Map,Tissues*.

    Ok This is the PLCE webbing configured for selection it consists of 2 double ammo pouchs,2 Waterbottle pouchs,3 Utility pouchs at the rear. On the Left strap theres a filed dressing taped on(remember when taping on use black tape) on the Right strap theres a Pace Counter.

    I'll do the kit-list for the Webbing and Bergen when i write them down on a note-pad ok.

    Smock Kit

    Myself I carry a good deal of kit in my smock and as such its a weight. Also I've seen troopers with nothing in theirs. I'm just wondering what do you have in your smock? And do you change the kit depending on what you are doing? ie on parade or weekends?
    It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

    The smock has massive pockets for a reason. What the FU&$ are you doing with a mobile on tactics?
    One of my smocks is laid out as recommended with mozzie kit,cam paint,compass,small torch,small folding knife etc..Naturally all this comes out for parade....or i just put on my second,clean smock.

    There was an excellent foldout in Connect a few months ago, based on what is carried, where & why for the Std NCOs Cse, run by the NCO Training Wing.

    But personally, on tactics I carry as little as I can in my smock, eg whistle, pen knife, tac aide, sweets etc. The reason being it makes it uncomfortable when you get down, more difficult to run, & harder to get things out. The flaps on the pockets, while making sure you don't lose anything, also make it very difficult to take things out quickly (especially a tac aide).

    "The smock has massive pockets for a reason. What the FU&$ are you doing with a mobile on tactics?"

    Apparrantly you are unfamiliar with the lesser known code phrase invented by CIS personnell "use other means"= take out your mobile phone and ring the section commander because this radio is screwed.

    Bitching about SINCGARS: The SINCGARS cost about €10k. Handsets, without which the sets are useless, cost about €100. Guess what the DF didn't buy for the new radios? Or at least, that used to be the state of play.
    Take these men and women for your example.
    Like them, remember that posterity can only
    be for the free; that freedom is the sure
    possession of those who have the
    courage to defend it.

    Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
    ***************
    If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

    Even the British Army resorted to individual troops using their personal mobile phones in the Balkans because the Clansman?(i think) radios werent working.Come to think of it how come the coverage there was good and I have to look like an idiot waving my phone around trying to get a signal with my t610 in parts of Belfast???

    ever heard the saying

    LIVE, FIGHT,SURVIVE...

    live from your bergin, fight from your cefo, survive (cant spell) from your smock....
    Over the centuries, mankind has tried many ways of combating the forces of evil...prayer, fasting, good works and so on. Up until Doom, no one seemed to have thought about the double-barrel shotgun. Eat leaden death, demon...

    back to the pt

    For Tactics:Whistle, Lighter, Penknife and compas.
    Tie shoelace to each individual item and attach to the little ring at the top of your pockets (1 item per hole please).
    Result:no loss of eqiup,know exactly where everything is and its easier to take out.
    No need to thank me....... I already know.:D
