I am not sure if they are allowed or not. They probably are.

But you HAVE to have a wet shave every morning even if you don't get stubble. You will get a real rollocking if you don't and most likely be put on the flank. SO there isn't really much point in taking an electric shaver.

Oh and don't put your sheets in your locker wet either, they don't like that to much. :wink:

IMO electric shavers are never going to give a shave even close to a wet.

And even if you are allowed to use a electric at CTCRM (which I doubt) you wont have much time in the morning and a wet shave is much faster, also power points in the field are few and far between :roll:

electric shavers are SHITE unless you fork out at least 150 quid!i seen some in the shop for 200!opted for the cheapest 30 quid ones and its the worst purchase ive ever made.

still,im not keen on the idea of shaving everyday as my skin becomes irritated,and somtimes even after a shave,that nite i get the stubble back

Umm, nice cam cream mixed in with stubble and a bic razor with cold water....that sraping noise is something to remember.

Try using head and shoulders to get rid of cam cream. :D

Its genius.

Any liquid soap does the job. For best results put it on a paper towel then just wipe the cam cream off. You will have to rinse the soap off afterwards though.

As to electric razors, they were a big no-no when I was in basic, and I'm pretty sure they still are.

Get a wet razor which is easy to clean (i.e. not some 5 bladed monstrosity) and buy 'brushless shave'. It comes in a toothpaste type tube, and is the dogs nads for shaving in the field.

Personally, I like to think of shaving as another test. Just practise speed and quality and you should pass just fine!

Cheers.
