Anybody know what to expect for weekend 2?

#1
Hello

Does anyone know what's in store for phase one weekend 2 training? At malta. It's a new syllabus and nobody at my unit seems to know what the schedule will be.

:?

Don't worry about communal showers; have three at home on friday night and you'll be OK for the weekend.

Oh, if you see a L/Cpl in a PWRR beret tell him his 'tache looks gay.

I really wouldn't worry. If you take everything on the kit list and do what is asked of you, you will be fine.

Unless you're a control freak like me and are unsuited for anything except General and above. Any day now, they'll realise it too and promote me.

Ahem... on a more serious note. Weekend 2, SAA Lesson 2 and 3, PT, Drill, CEMO CEFO and a couple of health and hygiene lecturets. Bout it really.
Wasn't the Colonel a klans man (no....not that one, Klans man)?

Is this gonna be the theme of your next few posts?

If your RTC is any good, I imagine they are, then your unit will have recieved joining instructions at least the week before you are due to go and no doubt on those JIs is the programme for the following w/e along with 'fit to attend' paperwork and kit checklist.

If you don't get your JIs then ask for them, our RTC sends them out every week prior to the training w/es.

Mate, you're better off just rocking up with all your kit and cracking on. Its more fun when its the unknown, because if someone tells you here that theres a 2 million mile run, or a gassing session with some noxious compound, you'll spend all weekend worrying about and take your eye off the ball.

Turn up. Crack on. Enjoy it.

[Sgt Wilson] I say sir, do you really think that's wise? [/Sgt Wilson]

Ah, happy memories...

OK then, no JI's, I will ask for them for the next weekend, so as not to bore some of you :D

Never mind the proper planning at this stage, turn up wearing or carrying everything issued and crack on. Does that include the sexy long johns :)

Have a word with your RTT, they should have the programmes for you to take a look at.

I can Understand your frustration, ask the RTC staff for an advance copy they'll be happy to supply.

Were you given an information pack after your H&S brief on day one, containing ALL the handouts and the Course Training Programme?

I dont think the RTC give out the training programme - this would only encourage the dears not to bring kit they think they don't need...

Best image ref the PWRR L/Cpl is when some recruit asked him not to keep getting at him because he is "a Brother..."

Wrong, wrong, wrong :D

All Units that use Malta Barracks have been issued with a set of Admin Instructions re Recruit Training - one of the Annexes is a standard set of Joining Instructions that are to be handed to each recruit (with the actual dates of the course weekends manually inserted). This specifies kit etc but probably now needs updating re the new course (something else to do!) . In the meantime though all Unit RHQ's were recently issued a copy of the detailed new training programme so that they could brief all Recruits accordingly with very specific instructions on the new kit requirements given Ex Icebreaker on weekend 1
So suggest that you speak to the RTT/PSI
