    Picture the scene.

    You are taking the RAF Fitness test.

    You are holding on to your partner's feet while he performs sit ups.

    You glance down.:cool:

    Your partner is wearing loose-fitting running shorts and equally loose fitting boxers underneath.:eek:

    'Tight Boxers' are called Trunks in M&S. They're OK.

    However if by tight boxers you really mean 'large @rse', that's NOT, OK?:yep:

    As long as the PTi's can't see them hanging out the bottom of your PEd shorts during lessons you're alright, that's the real issue. Just get some a few tighter/shorter fitting pairs of boxers to wear when you know you've got a PEd lesson.

    Unless you're likely to be wearing underwear that shows at the bottom of your PEd shorts when standing up I wouldn't think it would be an issue... Just wear whatever you usually wear for the gym/running, it's not like the PTI's are going to be checking. :confused:

    Do you have anything that hangs out? Do you normally wear really loose underwear?

    i know we have to get name tags to sew on our kit etc, but like the guys on IOT, do you need to label everything with your surname by way of name stickers???

    Nursie, You need to stop flapping!

    We will tell you what to label and how, once you are here - just bring the labels with you. Not everyone reads this site and believe it or not, we have a system that works quite well without TSR! Don't worry about labelling your own stuff - it's the military gear that looks the same as everyone else's that's the problem!

    Having said that, if you have anything of value, it's worth marking that!

    Be prepared is great and all, but as has been said, not everyone logs on here and thoroughly researches every little detail of the kit they should be bringing and how to perfectly prepare in every single aspect (or does any research about RTS at all based on some recruits I remember...). Yes the standard kit list isn't too great, but you're not going to find yourself re-flighted just because you haven't written your name on your ironing board in the correct colour pen when you turn up.
