    thanks guys....

  6. maindy barracks?

  8. You will do the following (Could be in any order, and some things might be missing if your doing a one-dayer) :

    - 1.5 mile run (Under 14 mins to pass)

    - Jerry can walk/run

    - A couple of strength tests on some machines, including heaves.
    Just to note, they arent really tests - it's just to get an overall view of you so to speak.

    - A military lesson (Will most likely be a grenade lesson) with a test to follow. You will basically have to remember 10 things about the grenade.

    - BARB test. (touch screen test thing, nothing to worry about)

    - A team task. most likely scenario is you will be split into sections and they will set up a couple of planks and platforms and you have to cross the area as a team. (and not touch the floor beacause it will be either lava, acid or electrified!)

    - You may get an introductory PT lesson

    - And the last thing i can think of is a very, very simple maths and english test.

    All in all, it's pretty easy and nothing to worry about.
  9. Stay away from Shekin Jenkins he's a nasty b if you dont give him a fag or beer soaked beermat, oh he's the goat
