  • Its not what, but who you know!!

    As the old sayin goes, just wondering if ye all believe this when it comes to getting issued or re-issued new gear/uniform.. Some turn up on camp with an old smock, a new smock, and sure an extra one just in case. Are these people doing special "favours" in return for these items or do they just acquire them??? any help would be great.

    I got issued a second smock because the Q couldnt get me a Norge.

        We overran the CQ's entrenched position in a surprise attack while he had vacated it. Ah the spoils of war!

          I don't think its what/who you know, but how good you are at aquiring these items yourself. If you wait for a Q or whoever to get it for you then you'll be waiting.

            The Q once asked me, before I was due to go on my Standard NCO course, if I needed any item of kit.

            "What have you got", was my reply.

              Well lads, my whole company was green with envy as we watched 12 new recruits being issued brand new Magnum operational boots, there were no parade ones available so they got the good ones!

              Its not who you know....its your timing!

                  Better then parade boots, unless you're on parade of course...

                    But i was under the impression that everyone got the same items upon entry.

                      The difference is PDF rec. pl. is taken in and equipped together, RDF recruit throughout the year & depending on security clearance times will get new recruits to their rec. pl. at different times. PDF are all issued the same stuff at the same time, RDF unfortunately get issued as they are attested so some items are not in stock ect.

                        Yes, like 24B's and jumpers...
