*sorry to be a killjoy

ask some of the other lads in your unit, at least one of them would have done the weekends fairy recently and can advise you on kit as one training centre may be different to another
 
#5
If you are attending 4Div RTC (SE) at Malta Bks in Aldershot your 1st weekend will consist generally of the following:

Fri - Arrival, booking in briefings and wpns to armoury.

Sat - Rouse approx 0600hrs, Platoon muster parade, breakfast, collect weapons, a series of lectures and presentations and some PT until lunch time approx, move onto a training area with all of your field kit, carryout basic field craft lessons, SAA lessons, night in the field.

Sun - More field craft, SAA lessons and PT until lunch, after lunch clean up of Bks, final Company parade and dismissal.

This is the general idea, you must be aware that Friday night is in barracks and Saturday night is in the field.

Take ALL of your issue kit plus washing and shaving kit & towel, spare underwear and socks, PT kit (MUST BE - green issue T shirt and dark blue issue shorts), boot cleaning kit, note book and pen/pencil, a small amount of money for stickies. No need for civilian clothing this weekend, but you will need it for the rest of your weekends.

Make sure you have ALL of your kit as you may be RTU'd/back squadded if you have not got the correct kit to carryout the training.

One last thing to pack, a sense of humour, but dont pack an attitude.

You will at times feel like you are getting fucked around and you will get shouted at by instructors if you do not do what you are told first time (or if you are a mong).

Hard to advise what to bring without knowing what you're actually doing!

See you all at the weekend.
Malta Barracks PTI :evil:
I think in the seldom used but in this case seemingly relevant, 'Quentin Crisp Scale of Scariness', a STAB PTI nestles tightly between the bloke from the R Whites lemonade adverts and male nannies.

I love STAB PTI's, they are an enigma, they are actually playing a role, within playing a role !! :D
