Pester those smelly troglodytes living in the Wales OTC II thread back out in the main ACF+UOTC board for unit specific stuff.
General OTC survival tips? If you're an ex-cadet keep your confidence quiet. Come to as much training as possible without sacrificing your studies. Get involved and don't be afraid of volunteering for stuff. Etc ad nauseum.
I expect most of the studenty types are away on holiday/camp and have far better things to do than look at arrse
Hes not one of yours you can ignore him. SHAG
You'll probably meet his missus before the first weekend! RAG
Get down to the stand at freshers fayre and go on the lash with them that evening, - eat alot of stodge before the night out, and vomitting on the bleep tests is nothing to be ashamed of!
For a start then you can insult people without anyone getting pissed of at you (Cowardice I know but who gives a ****). Second so the staff don't know who you are. and third 'persec' I know it's not very applicable ATM for an OCdt in an OTC but one day you might not want the whole world to know your opinionsâ and who you are.
I don't have a problem with that, even though the CO is a regular visitor, he still hasn't let on that he knows I'm on here, although he did apparently say it to one bloke. And, besides, why does it matter if the staff know who you are, there isn't one person in WUOTC who I have a problem voicing complaints to, its a volunteer organisation, not a proper job.
Other than that, I agree with you, its better to have a different name.
