I'm confused to as what I should do, I've got all the kit listed in the Recruit Handbook but allot of it isn't listed on my official kit list from the RT brief. Should I bring it still anyway?

Well spotted, the Royal Marine kit list has been amended & medication is no longer on it. It remains on the RN kit-list, but not the RM.

I've amended the original post.

Those given a Recruit Handbook in addition to the AFCO joining letter should bring all items listed from official sources.

Those only given the AFCO joining letter should only bing that kit listed in the letter.

Ok so this may be the stupidest question ever but I can't find the info anyway on here and I fear being laughed off the phone if I ring AFCO so here goes...

The kit list doesn't mention underwear/socks so how many should I bring down and is there a certain type you have to wear?

Any help would be appreciated fellas...only 2 weeks till RT!

Welcome.

There is no specific, single training building at the Commando Training Centre, however if you "Google Earth" 'Lympstone', you may find out where it is.

Hi Michael, welcome.

Your standard kit is issued free of charge.

Upon joining the Commando Training Centre to commence Recruit Training (RT), each troop is given a unique list of additional items that are not issued, but may well prove useful during RT.

Recruits are advised to take around ?200 upon joining to cover any incidental expenses prior to receiving their first wage, paid to bank.

Hi Guys

I have a question that may seem a tad odd.

I am gearing up to apply for the royal marines, currently on a drive for fitness.

However trying to glean as much knowledge as possible and may have a whole lot more questions.

After looking at this list I notice it says a razor and spare blade, now I take my shaving fairly seriously and shave with a straight razor, would this be permitted for bringing along to lympstone?

What sort of things are on this list. I know they are unique, but are there any extras that are usually on there? I here the shop on camp is abit pricey, and if I can get anything before abit cheaper it would help.

So far as I'm aware anything with a 3 inch blade could be construed as a potential offensive weapon - as unlikely as that may seem.

The advice is take disposible razors for the first 3 weeks, make the enquiry via your training team & if approved, your family can bring your "cut-throat" razor to Families Day if "given the OK".
