  • Thick socks for the boots are generally better
  • Olive drab T-shirt
  • Combat shirt

  • Boot cleaning kit (a couple of brushes, cloth and polish)
  • Small personal first aid kit

Not essential but preferential

  • Torch (for night exercises)
  • Compass (these are provided but recommended)
  • Black or olive cold weather gear (hat, gloves, scarf or neck gaiter)
  • Scrim net
  • Webbing kit (required for some shooting activities and we sometimes use them for night exercises)

Types of uniform

Please note – there are two types of uniform you can acquire.

CS95 (Soldier ’95)

CS95 uniform

Newer MTP pattern

MTP uniform

Please note: MTP is more expensive to purchase due to it being a newer uniform type. CS95 is much easier and cost effective. Many cadets still wear CS95 and will do for the foreseeable future.

Note, our regulations do not allow mixing of the above uniform.
