they normally provide a large car park that is kept in good condition for new recruits to park on. Normally by a flag pole, but not always.

Seriously though, you can take your car if they say you can take our car.

I wouldn’t recommend it as you’ll end up being used as a taxi by your oppos.

As a general rule thigh, vehicles left on camp not only have to be booked in, but they normally need to be taxed, MOT’d and insured.

You won’t have too much time to nip out to the shops.

What he said, I don't remember being allowed time for anything other than eating and sleeping and those were at a premium during my training (many many years ago)

Every time? You have some high expectations regarding weekend leave. I suggest that you remember that leave in training is generally earned by hard work.

Snap.

We had a corporal who during room inspections used to like going through your personal kit and throwing it around, particularly out of the window. Once his behaviour became obvious people packed up suitcases and stashed civvy and personal possessions in their car if they had one as it was no use till the weekends anyway.

Fella. Do us old cünts a favour will you? Stop referring to us as 'lads'. Probably, 95% of us are old enough to be your dad at the very least.

You really aren’t going to get much chance to use it during phase 1. Best to leave it at home.

Getting back to Newcastle is easy, jump on the train at Darlington, it only takes 40 minutes. Better than trying to get up the A1 on a Friday afternoon. There will probably be transport laid on for the train station at Darlo, so you won’t even have to fork out for a taxi.

One word of warning though, if you get into Darlo and a strange ginger haired woman ask you if you’ve seen her pony, RUN.

Thanks for the advice
