    Wow, James ... looks like they get some quality (and quantity) gear. That's quite a selection of boots! It would be cool if after his transfer to the Rifles he compared the gear list of that unit to this one ... I wonder how much of a cross-match there would be?

    Thanks for posting,
    Joe

    Clothing items like the excellent MCT boots (similar in some ways to US jungle boots) he will keep but they may not be replaced. Trade items like the assault lifejacket, the seaman's goretex waterproofs and the maritime counter terrorist gear will have to be handed in.

    He's only 23 and has been in five years and done two tours (UN Cyprus and Afghan). He was due to for SF selection last year but his psycho girlfriend played up and he dropped the idea. Fortunately she dumped him last night so he can get on with the job of soldiering.

    1 Rifles is a light infantry Bn which has just moved out of the commando role, they are deploying next year. But first he has to go back to school and complete Phase II of the Combat Infantry Course.

    Thanks for the clarification, James!
