Basic At Winchester


Ive just finished training after 14 long weeks at ATR Winchester and i loved my time there!

If you've got any questions about it let me know... specially if your going in the next 2 weeks because you'll be in my old troop! :p
Hey, one quick question. I start tomorrow, and havent been told what to travel in. Suit or just plain clothes?

yeah im goin in on march 17th, what was the part of it you most enjoyed, and part you dreaded?
Sorry for the late reply - the bit you enjoy the most is the down time with your mates!! and the bit i hated was the beasting we always got before the assault course lol
hey. ive got my adsc on the 4th of march and my phase 1 would be at winchester, is there any chance that i could get in to winchester for the 17th of march? at least i would have spoken to someone there lol
Dont think there is much chance in that, i did my selection in october and got given march 17th date, so you might be looking at august time when you join.
shame you got beasted before the assault course- what were you expecting ? Tea and biscuits ?
Has anyone ever not been beasted before assault course ?
got a couple of questions for u much civi clothes r needed?? is the course exactly 14 weeks?? (planning on bookin a holiday straight afta)
whats the longest distance u hav 2 run?? cheers
don't take much civies to winchester you will spent the first 6 weeks in sex pests (ron hills and atr jumper) when not in combats or drill kit. take as little as possible you will only need civies for going out of camp on map reading and for france on week 5. have fun i did ha ha
oh don't book a holiday after until you know you can. phase two can be the monday after you pass out and as for the 14 weeks it depends on injuries or backsquading so don't waste you money booking a holiday just in case. the bft is 1.9 miles at winchester (should 1.5 but hey) and the cft is 8 miles but with all the beastings you will spend a lot of time running and marching but it's charactor building mate you will enjoy it.
