Joemurray93 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
As a recent recruit myself, id say save the money and get a good set of Proban fireproof overalls. If you buy a cheap set now you'll only want a better set soon enough.

You'd probably be best doing the remainder of this season in 'normal clothes' and a tabbard. If you're looking to save as much as possible, wait until the start of next year and join the BMMC, then get the overall discount. saves paying the 20 for the rest of this year. Jeans etc should be fine for now, as a trainee we dont tend to get too close to fires!

I spent 30 on waterproof jacket and trousers from screwfix as i needed them last minute (dont really have any weatherproof gear other than that), but i imagine you could do much better than that on ebay.

Hope this may be of some help, and if you have any other questions, as a new marshal myself, id be happy to try to answer any questions you might consider silly (like i had!)
