Always be at least 5 mins early for any time you're given.

If you smoke, dont ask for a fag break during drill / lessons (you'll be suprised, some people will!!)

When doing PT, address instructors as 'Staff' and ditto to the other advice.

Not on topic at all... BUT, there are Per Sec issues with the tittle of this post. I know chances of anything happening are small, but giving away the dates and times that troops are going to be arriving at the camp/Train station etc I think is a bit much.

Call me alarmist, but IIRC two or three young lads got killed by the IRA waiting for transport from a train station to their ATR.
