Members must accept the walker leader’s decisions.  Each walker should have proper walking boots with ample ankle protection and carry: A complete waterproof outfit.          Personal medication, if required.          A whistle, head torch, spare batteries.          Spare clothing.          Rucksack and liner.          Food ( including emergency rations), drinks ( hot and cold).
