  1. Hi i just confirmed my intake date however the officer stated that i was down to join ATR bassingbourn, i was wondering if i was correct in thining that that ATR was for junior entries and seeing as i`am 19 and applying to join the RE that there might be a mix up of some kind? thank you for any help
  2. now lichfield is closed down RE adult entries are at bassingbourn, im off there soon myself
  3. oh right thank you for the response i thought that RE basic training was being held at pirbright
