What's the drill on accommodation on course at Chicksands,and recommendations for transport? I've been flagged up for a course as a civvie and possibly unlike some would tend to prefer to stay in the mess for convenience etc and also don't want to blow my training & travel budget on a week in a hotel. Do they automatically allocate space for accommodation or may they assume civvies winge if they don't get hotel? Also transport wise I can take the official car but that means depriving everyone else of it for a week. Would I go insane inside all the time if I rely on public transport?
