ATR Pirbright 25th Aug?? Any other females out there??

I have just passed selection and will be starting Phase 1 training @ Pirbright on 25th Aug.... Anyone else out there been given these dates? I'm pretty sure it's just females for this date?
ooooooo i might be goin then! i was disappointed cos i was supposed to be goin in on july 16th but i will more than likely, if not definately be goin then if thats the next intake after july.....

so on that note ill probly see you ther :D
Shenda..... When did you do selection? Didnt happen to be last thursday did it :)
Ive got a provisional date to start in september but my AFCO has said this may get moved forward. Soooo.... mabe i will be ther at the same time as you.

I had selection on the 22-23rd May, But i think they put yo into basic training in time with the phase 2 training you will have. it depends on the regiment you are going into and the quota they have to fill the positions available. I am going into the signals reg. so its been timed along with the phase 2 training to ensure the entire programme rolls into each other as apposed to having a 6 week break inbetween phase 1 and 2.
I was wondering if you train in mixed sex or is it all female or male only?
Pirbright has changed from an ATR to an ATC now, so therefore is mixed sex, used to be a female only training camp but they refurbished the whole place, also the 1 Royal Anglian infantry is based there too.
Oh cool, not so bad, I can get to whoop some of the guys arses too! lol!
The trg is only with the same sex though.

I am supposed to be going straight to phs 2 which is in question at the moment due to my op tour being over 2-3 years ago so we shall see.

Shenda...u say you passed selection 22/23 May? I was on that one at Pirbright.
Yes it was on the 22-23rd May, my real name is Kimitra, my nickname is shenda, are you female? Did we do selection together, I was the only girl applying for the Intel Core?
I was female the last time I responded to your post! :)

I was on the one with annoying chavs wearing pink tracksuits who kill animals illegally!!?? Oh how I wanted to do the same to her!

I don't remeber your name.

Well done and Good luck.

I was No.1 :)
Monkey wench? OMG, yeh I was in that group, what happened to her, did she get through? Which one was you? I always shorten my name to Kim, so I may have introduced myself as that... you said you was number 1, im trying to remember who was ho, I was 27, its nearly impossible to remember. send me an email at, so we can chat hunny x
Monkey wench, I just realised who you are, your hubby has been in the forces for years right? and you was in the TA before you attended selection, I was sat talking to you loads, I was the one who just got back from Greece, I was the one who speaks 6 languages, I had brown hair tied back with a quif and a good tan?

any 1 joining royal engingeers in august 11th for pirbright if so add me
Not joining RE mate im goin in AAC but am goin to pirbright around august just waiting for my paperwork to process at glasgow HQ because im re-enlisted so nothing is new to me in terms of basic training and what to expect... So if any of u guys and gals need a low-down of what to expect PM me or post on here, or any tips for preperation that will definately help you, for now heres what you should do. Get used to sleeping at 11pm and waking at 5:30am trust me, small things like this will help avoid fatigue during early stages of basic, and sleep is one of the most frustrating things a recruit goes through for the firsty month at least. Im no fitness advisor, but for prep i tend to double what the book says, so instead of doing 1.5 miles a day i do 3 miles etc. etc. and on my rest days i dont rest, i still do 1.5-3 miler only at a slower pace.

If you want my msn just PM me guys, good luck in your army career :)
