Basic

#1
Just wondering if you chaps can give me some tips on what kind of things i should take to basic training? Is there anything important i should take (sense of humour - check!)
 
#2
full set of webbing, imitation SA80, body armour. :D
A list of stuff actually not to take, id take plenty of personal cleaning stuff, plasters and pain killers, and lots of grollies and socks

good luck
 
#3
Dunno what a grolly is, is this northern speak? And should I take an ironing board?
 
#4
open ears and a retracted neck, let some other penarrse draw attention to himself

oh and dont forget to ask for a tour of the indoor grenade range, facinating stuff is that!

Fuking hell, I've seen once of those things, an OC (an ex-ranker) I once drove took one on exercise, looked like something Mr Delmonte would use.

asan instructor at training reg i would say,

1. Don't bring your attitude
2. Don't come thinking we owe you something
3. Don't come and expect to leave straight away if you can't handle being shuted at, it won't happen for at least 4 weeks.
4. Be a man
5. Smile at everything.
6. Do as you are told,
blah blah blah, the list goes on but most importantly just enjoy it, laugh at everything and bring a sense of humour

Except when you've got some hairy arrsed corporal screaming at you what a "fu.cking shagging disgrace you are and to start fu.cking "sparking".......

I think if you chose that momment to start grinning at him you'd end up pokey'd down to the guardroom or bum fu.cked in the abloutions for flirting :D

Serious question. Are you allowed to keep a diary during basic? Nothing fruity, but I know that a few years down the line it'd be hard to remember what I'd done.
