by | Nov 20, 2019 | Supply Drop |

Heading off to RAF Halton Air Force Basic Training for 10 weeks is stressful enough, without being prepared for it will be even worse. In this article, we describe what non-clothing items are in your raf prtc (BRTC) kit list.

This article concerns the non-clothing that you will require. At Supply Drop we can supply the items you need at an exceptional price.

Note that this article does not include the paperwork items that you need. This will be covered in an addition article.

Only Bring What You Need

A good idea is to split the items into two packs as they probably will not fit into one pack, and just in case you need to lug them up four flights of stairs when you arrive at RAF Halton
