I start my RT soon and was just wondering if there is a certain amount of stuff that im allowed to bring?

Like a certain size of bag that i can take.

Anyone got any ideas?
No doubt Ninja will as he seems to know everything! :uglyhammer:

im taking a pretty massive holdall mate, but apparently take minimal civvys and boxxers and stuff because there isnt much space for all that. apparently you dont wear boxxers during the day *text deleted*.

In simple terms:

If you need to take more than one bag, either it's too small or you're taking too much.

The kit list pretty much tells you what to take & you really don't need much civilian clothes- just two or three complete changes of outerwear in addition to what you are wearing when you join. You'll be wearing uniform for nearly all the time initially, so other than underwear, you really don't need much. Your towels should be the bulkiest items you take initially.

Most people take an average rucksack, not dissimilar in size to a bog standard bergen. Remember you have to lug it, so keep it minimal.

When did you do your PRMC? Because I did mine on 04/08/08 and I got my date to start RT on the 10/11/08.

that was only because of summer break mate, you could probably do it 2 weeks after your PRMC.
