    Hunters Moon turns boys into men that's for sure. It's that moment the lads in the troop look at each other and know they've been through an arduous part of training and have gotten through it together.

    It's always been a tough one, even 10 years ago when I did it!

    It is essential to maintain good wet and dry kit discipline in the field. Where the tactical situation allows, a clean, dry set of clothes should be worn at night, even though this may mean changing back into wet, dirty clothes for the next days activity. Socks and underclothes should be changed and washed frequently.
    Your dry kit is a full set of lightweight MTP uniform that is used solely for the purpose of sleeping in and all measures should be taken to ensure that it remains dry. Night is often the only opportunity for your body to dry out and recover. It should be an identical set up to the daytime ‘Wet Kit’ and you should always bear in mind if contacted at night that this is what you will need to fight and survive in for the foreseeable future. The likes of maps, compass and other mission essential equipment from the day’s ‘Wet Kit’ will be moved into the ‘Dry Kit’ for sleeping, allowing soldiers to function normally if bumped. This is particularly important should you ever have the joys of a jungle stint. The humidity found in the jungle and wetness caused by frequent river crossings can cause morale to dip lower than you ever thought possible!
    Waterproof all equipment where possible and practicable. Maintain good wet/dry kit discipline on all exercises.
    Enjoy!
