Used to think so until I heard of a chap loosing his foot whilst defusing a bomb. Puts a bit of a new slant on things? I used to think that any soldier in position of a note from Matron should be at least able to meet the minimum requirement of fitness. I recon my attitude has changed with age. We have a Fijian soldier who plays Army rugby and cant pass his BPFA! Food for thought. Are the Army sports standards all to cock or is the BPFA wrong?
