Forget fancy knives, axes and other Gucci kit, a course like this is probably the best £120 anyone could spend on bushcraft, other outdoor activities or just for day to day living - my first aid ticket is up to date but I’m tempted. :)

I did an expedition first aid course with Wayne (Forest Knights) years ago, excellent; I can't recommend it enough - as Nomad says, better than spending money on kit IMHO.
