My cousin sereena in auzzie is strangley is joining the army at the same time has me and we diddent know each other were!
It seems well easier to join their army! at selection you only do the shuffle run (beep test) and some sit ups and press ups, then phase 1 is 80days

The requirements you are reffering to are the entry level. Once you complete basic training and are posted to a Land Command unit the standards are almost the same as UK.

Asherz may want to do some research on Australian Army deployments, and maybe some 'googling' on awards for gallantry in recent months....

There is a fair bit of information in the 'Australia' forum.

Which equates to 1.5 miles in 12 minutes - so not disimilar to ours

I think its a 2miler in 15.54 for the U.S army. Not 100% sure though, they have some grading system or something.

just had a gander and the u.s army is based on a 300 point system. you have a 2 mile run , sit ups, press ups

and you have to get at least 150 points to pass out phase one. then 160 to pass out phase 2 seems pretty low standard IMO
