  1. Just a question please to serving soldiers,

    I have just had a call to say by selection date is being put back another week, as something was forgtten to be put on my forms!

    I've had numerous problems trying to join. Paperwork going missing, getting me confused with someone of a similar surname etc. etc.

    It's coming up to 1 year since I applied, I've not even been to selection yet! and just wanted to know if a lack of organization skills is something I'm going to have to get used to in the Army?

    Thanks
     
  2. Mmm - Northampton by any chance?
     
  3. It's a test, see if you are up to the "hurry up and wait" mentality.
     
  4. If it's a test of patience then I must be up there with F*ckin Jesus
