      normally 3 to 5 days and it reoccurs every 28

      Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

        Only for girls though.

          Attestation period?

          If you bring everything necessary with you the first time you go down, your security clearance should be sent off that within 1/2 days. That will take 2-3 months. During those 2/3 months, you will do an audiogram & medical. Realisitically you medical will probably around the time your security clearance comes back. You will then be sworn in to fulfill a period of 3 years service (4 yrs for NSR).

                Someone please answer the OP's questions :

                Perhaps like this :

                WHen you join you are subject to a security clearance. This can take a variable amount of time , from 4 days to 8 months . There is nothing that can be done about speeding this up.

                However an induction syllabus exists for you to be trained up on while you are waiting.


                The uniform , again is a variable quantitity since RDF have a certain priority when it comes to getting clothing issued but normally should consist of

                1: Magnum boots
                2: DPM trousers and belt
                3: DPM shirt
                4: Tshirt
                5: Beret and Cap Badge
                6: DPM Smock

                Anything else is a bonus at recruit issue.

                These issues should be new, you may be given part-worn at the time but you are entitled to have it exchanged for new at the earliest opportunity.

                      Oohhhh the tracksuits. evil prats who made them.

                        I understand that the paedopants tracksuits are no longer on issue, and now wearing the bottoms doesn't require you to sign on the sex offenders register first.

                          The issue PDF tracksuit is being changed (apparently) and I have noticed that the recent issues to my company have included a complentatry tracksuit (old pattern). Still a nice track suit though. As trelheim said, anything above the basic is a bonus and fair play to you if manage to receive it.

                            Yep, the new issue tracksuit is a predominantly green colour scheme, and not
                            with figure forming tracksuit bottoms, unlike the previous predominantly blue
                            version

                              Is the new one not black with green piping?

                              As recently as last Sunday there are no T-Shirts or 3*s (for No1s) in clothing stores in CBB!
