my self and a few other recruits are now coming to the end of our basic training attending weekend 7 this weekend
and a fit to attend medical on tue for going to catterick week beginign 6th may
the question i have stupid though it may be is
what is involved in the fit to attend medical i have hear two versions

1. it is identical to your entry medical
2. it is identical but will include things such as jerry can lifts and amo box lifts to asses our general state of fitness not just health

not a big issue just wondering if anyone who been there can advise me as to what to expect

Last fit to attend course medical I had went something like this:

Pob " Hello Doc I am here for my medical"
Doc " What the feck you doing here I told them not to bother"
Pob" Umm but I am here now . . . "
Doc" FFS, right ok then. Are you fit ? On any medication"
Pob " err Yes, and umm No"

Doc " here is your chit now feck of, and tell your PSI not send people again, just get the names and I'll send paperwork to your TAC"

Well I was glad I wasted a drill night on a trip across London for that. You'd think by now I shouildn't be surprised.

Yeah my last FTA medical, to attend a jumps course, was pretty much the same. It consisted of me jumping up and down on the spot, turning my head from side to side and touching my toes......I think that was more for the Docs entertainment than anything else!

Oh, and the usual "Are you generally fit? Are you on drugs? How much do you drink/smoke/weigh?" etc

Doc" FFS, my eyes! Put your clothes back on! Has that always been that size? Did you know it's not meant to be bright green?"
Pob " err Yes, and umm No"

Doc " here is your chit now feck off, and tell your PSI to not send you again, I'll just send a laminated biff chit and the require HAZMAT forms to your TAC"

Well I was glad I wasted a drill night on a trip across London for that. You'd think by now I shouildn't be surprised.

Mine too, he even crossed off problems I told the medic about, that I am claiming for through the Royal British Legion!!!

The med check is nothing special mate - same as the TA entry medical from memory.

Good luck at Catterick!! A hard two weeks and a demanding Field Exercise, but it gets you really wound up ready for P Coy.

Well your in good hands.

Tip from the top though (after reading a couple of your previous postings) - Stop being so negative about your fitness - just work harder in your own time and when your on exercise, show the PTI how determined you are and keep any negative thoughts at the back of your head. Focus on the task ahead and no matter what, dont stop until its done -even if you have to crawl over the fckn finish line!!!

as ricky will tell you no doubt i have never pulled out of an event or exersise yet no matter how long it takes me or what condition i am in i will always get to the end
and my fitness is gradualy improving

i know it is something to be worked on and something to be improved upon but hey thats why im here
and admitedly yeah ricky is good
he taking us for our first cft this weekend after we come back from the field

so am looking forward to it
and i aint stopping till i either finish fall or am told to stop

Good skills mate. When on the CFT try and get to the front of the pack - this stops you slowing down and then running to catch up again as people inevitably drop further back and out. Tuck in a metre or two behind the DS and just stick to him like glue.

Remember its only 4 miles at a steady pace - sheer determination will get you through most of that!!!

Good luck!!

ps: Be gentle with them Ricky!!! haha

No itis not difficult, and does not require sheer determination, just a willingness to be bored for a 1 hour walk in the country.

Scots - beast him!
