It's sort of like a basic training depot but nowhere near as good, professional or as soldier like as Junior Leaders.

It is like a place with grammar and punctuation (full stops, commas, question marks etc etc).

Two major downsides to Pirbright.

1. its darn saarf

2. Its full of guards types, shouting Sgt Maj's and people who like to refer to others as "oi chippy"

You will enjoy your training, if you don't enjoy it you should transfer to be a civvie.

Although it is amusing watching people on the AA Drill Cse standing with head in hedge giving themselves a damn good bolloking.

I suggest you get on the Army Training Centre Pirbright website and read the blog being done by some of the guys currently going through training. Also be careful who you listen to as some of the comments are a bit dated or out of touch with how training is undertaken. Bottom line is turn up prepared (kit, basic level of fitness), open minded and motivated and I guarantee you'll enjoy it.
