hi guys just wondering if anyone can say what litchfeild is like, i have my 2 week recruit training there coming up,im a mature recruit in age, any tips to get me through alive, many thanks and regards
cheers 4th_of_foot, yes i suppose fitness is a must. whats the situation on kit inspection and do you still have to have it laid out on your bed. never had to on phase 1a and 1b, any tips on that would be great. also what sought of rest time do you get as training 15 hours a day for 14 days at my age will zap my batteries lol. im sure we would not train for that time every day.
dont worry mate my missus feels same, daughters upset, keeps crying at night time asking me to not go, hard choice mate, if i get treated like a muppet it might just be enough to rtu, family come first mate.
some reason im going early sat am, only one going from my unit (RE)
my running fitness not too bad, just enough to out run the local hoody gangs in my town lol
just hope training team not anti ta or we can kiss our ass goodbye lol
Food in Litchfield is fine....... if you like pasta bake. If not, tough.
Just remember that CMSR is BASIC training so stay motivated if you get bored. THe best bit will be in a years time when you get mobilised to go and play in the sand....
