    Another thing regarding boots. Are they used only for firearms section, or do we wear Jen as soon as we get issued our uniform? Thanks.

    Bulking boots for Wethersfield

    I've been at them the last 2 days. I'd say that they're shinny, but not the mirror shine that I'm aiming for. As long as I know they don't have to be perfect for getting down there and I can work away on them whilst there. Thanks.
  6. Hi all, im heading to down Weathersfeild this Sunday to start training. I'm having a bit of a hard time trying to get my boots a mirror Finish. I've tried all the different guides on line. What I'm asking is do the have to be bulled to a mirror finish on our first day of arrival, or is that more important for passing out? Thanks.

    Weathersfeild for training

    I ordered a pair of Magnums that are quite comfy and relatively cheap, plus found a 10% discount code so I'm sorted for boots. Do we also need any sore of parade shoes or that? It doesn't mention it in the joining instructions.

    I just got a pair of Magnum with a zip on the side today. I'm a 7 in everything and these have plenty of room inside them in a 7. Actually quite comfortable.

Someone mentioned takin like a clothes horse or line to hand washing on as there is no where to dry stuff? Is there enough irons for each block? Worth taking an iron for my room? Thanks for the reply.
  10. Hi all. Getting nearer to start of my training in September, and I'm just looking for tips/advice for anyone that's been for the 17 weeks? What do you wish that you took with you that you didn't? I'm taking my car with me the first week, driving down from Scotland, so I can take some home comforts, so to speak. Thanks for any advice.
