    Sigh...

    The EXACT Situation is governed by an Admin Instruction, DCOS SP Logs Admin Instr LIII

    Table VIII of this long document says you can have SD#1 after 18 months. There has been NO amendment to this since its issue date 01 Sep 06 to my knowledge.

    And Are No. 1's still issued?
    I dont really want them too much but I have been told by an Idiot of a brown-noser in my Unit that they are not issued anymore
    by the use of the word 'idiot' you summed up this guys knowledge. SD #1s are still on issue to all those entitled to them.

    All you have to do is ask nicely.

    The use of the word acquired, as always, suggests a less than legitimate sourcing!

    Universally known as a "schoolbag", since it's large size means that no matter how massive the person you put it on, from a distance they look like an 8 year old struggling under the weight of a normal sized schoolbag.

    They're good quality but look shite. Wish I hung onto the sausage bag I got in the reserve.

    Yes, kitbags and No1s are still issued. Everyone SHOULD get a kitbag on enlistment, and No1s after 18 months service.
