    The start of your basic military training. Expect foot drill, intro to the rifle, badges of rank type stuff. Also expect 2 or three sessions of basic phys, one of which is likely to be an intro to tabbing - 3 miles or so at a steady pace. You will be briefed when you get there, and there is no need to prepare for anything (except the phys) so don't worry.

    Top tips:

    Make sure your boots are broken in and comfortable.
    Always have a notebook and pencil with you.
    Be 5 minutes early for every timing you are given.
    Work hard at everything.

    Biggest tip:

    There will always be the course loser - late, scruffy, falling asleep in lessons, jacking on the phys. Don't be him, and once you have identified who he is, stay as far away from him as you can.
  12. Thanks for the help
  13. Wouldn't a bit of coursemanship be better?

    If there is someone who is struggling with something that you find easy then give them a hand if they'll accept it.
  14. hopefully start jan 14 aswell
  15. How did you guess I'm turning up?
