  1. Hi just hoping someone knows more than i can find on the old interweb as it all seems a bit vague:

    I'm 17 and looking to start the application process to join a combat regt. in June. Just wondering how long it would take before beginning phase 1 training if youve just arrived back in England? I've lived in Spain for the last 3 years..do they piss about with security checks etc..?

    Also would i have to remain in England while my application is being processed to attend any medicals, interviews etc..or would i be free to go back to Spain for a while and drink beer and lay in the sun 8) ?

    Looking forward to smart arrsed replies :D
