I start phase 1 in January for the rifles. I wanted to join 4 rifles and still intend on doing so if they allocate me to that battalion. The bulldog vehicles that the 4 rifles used on operations are now not being used and the 4 rifles apparently are now a light role. They go to afghan in 2013 according to a guy who is in the rifles now. Does anyone know the approx length of pre deployment training?
