Alright fellas, First post on here, so please be gentle ! I took the shilling in '84, got out in '90 & although I missed being in the army, I never re-enlisted for all the usual reasons. Anyway, took my lad down to the local recruiting office about a month ago & (as I am currently jobless), I jokingly asked the WO2 there if he could find me a job as well. Said WO2 mentioned something about RPGS(which I'd never heard of), but I later discovered that I'd been out far too long for that. Now, I don't know if I'm having a mid-life crisis or what ! But the idea of getting back into green really appeals, so I went next door to the TAC & am off down to Donny on Friday for selection. Sorry that I'm waffling a bit but now for the questions : 1)Chose RLC over INF due to my advanced age (42) & lack of useful qualifications. Is this a good choice ? 2)Does anybody know what the RRR( what's that all about ?) course is like at Donny ? 3)Got measured up for kit last week & don't fancy the boots at all ! I know that I won't be permitted to wear my Gucci Alt-Bergs during phase 1 training, but would I get away with my 20yr old BCH ? (Dug 'em out along with the rest of my reserve kit, done a couple of mile & 1/2 runs in 'em & they're still in decent nick & comfy as..) 4)Would I be allowed to exchange my old kit ( ie shirt KF, ect ) for the new gear ? You can't have too much kit, after all. 5)I've missed the Midland Challenge, so will have to go down the "every other weekend" route. Does anybody know how long this takes ? I'll leave it there for now. I'm sure that I'll be back with more daft questions in the near future ( subject to a favourable time next Sat). Thanks to all who've stayed the distance on this marathon of a post & thanks for any answers, advice, feedback, piss-taking received. Cheers.
