Gift idea for a FLT LT

why are these not already supplied to flt lt
I also wondered whats best way to go about getting a bit of money to get him something like asking parents if theyd like to make any contribution towards it but without the flt lt finding out? otherwise its all out of my own pocket really

if you think that’s bad, i’ve got my CIC soon and they’ve said that they can’t provide our rankslides so we have to buy our own!

That’s been on the paperwork for a while now. Our has resorted to buying :man_shrugging:t2:

Print out a few letters to give to cadets to take home explaining the reason why you are doing this and mention how much he has done to keep the sqn going for the cadets. It’s just a little way of saying thank you for his time he has put in etc :man_shrugging:

Yes good idea i think ill do this and hopefully OC doesn’t catch on lol to the letters

thats awful things like this are ridiculous shouldnt be having to pay or provide anything of your own.

Officers have always had to provide their own uniform. When I got my scraper it cost me close to £150 for re-ranking and new slides.

Something that the higher CoC totally forget about, usually after quite a number of years after your initial issue of your No.1 and middle age sets in :roll_eyes::man_shrugging:t2::face_with_raised_eyebrow:

No1s is the least of the cost as there is a p[ayment for re-ranking. But approx 8 pairs of ranks slides (Light Blue, Jumper Blue, GPJ Blue, Gortex Blue, MTP x 2, OG) and then No5s. Most places won’t reuse gold braid so its a fresh set each time :frowning:

CI’s get a polo shirt and Jumper if you’re lucky. There is no way I could be shelling out for upkeep of uniform :cold_face:
