Hello, little peeps, have your Balls dropped yet?

Treats in store, for you, there are!

Beware of naughty men with large helmets, advantage could be taken with no payments made.

Aargh, Ugh, Oh, Pay and Paybook correct, Sir!

You'll be in Chatham for a very long time as a sparky!
Is it true they no longer have to have the standard issue haircut at bassingbourn anymore? Rumour has it, one lad complained it was against his civil rights and they agreed to let him just shorten his hair!
 
#16
I no! around 39 weeks chatham, but be worth it for if i ever come out to civi life :) Well on my brief for Bassingbourn it says come with shortish hair or if not we have a onsite babour... so im guessing you can have it shortish..

Yea, but it drags, especially when I went through on the sparky course, our badge was a complete anal c*nt. You'll get given a sheet at gib with lots of electrical formulas on it, don't learn them! You'll get taught them at chatham when needed
 
#18
Ah really? I know it gonna be a long time but its about the only course that was available soon.. and I got drawn to it too :) How long ago was it before you passed it all? The training hard or... :)

I'd edit that if he's such an anal cunt mate, possibility of him reading this is probably quite high. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out what your name is and the fact that you've only just left 1 reg, so that doesn't exactly narrow it down to many courses.
