Belt Kit for Every Occasion…
I,ve noticed a lot of new larkers coming into the service fresh from training school are looking a bit like Officer Tackleberry from Police Academy.
I,m all for enthusiasm and I remember when I first started I always carried a nail punch in my caz box just in case I needed to get through that reinforced window. (Joking.)
Now after the passage of time and gaining experience all I carry are my Tuffcut shears (small, one pair for the use of), pentorch, stethoscope (small size which fits in my side leg trouser pocket), tourniquet and a black pen.
All the other kit is either in the big green bag or on the truck or RRV/RFU.
What useless pieces of kit have you seen people carrying? And what one piece of kit would you like to see issued to all stretcher monkeys?
