Driving down instead of taking the train.

#1
Hi i start my phase 1 training this Sunday at ATR Bassingbourn. Instead of taking the train my Parent offered to take me down after i said i was taking the train. I rung the office to say that my Parents were driving me down and they said just hand in the travel warrant in at the office. Is that all i have to do? Or do i have to ring ATR Bassingbourn to tell them that im driving down?

Just turn up. Go to guardroom on arrival and they will direct you to where you have to go.
Guardroom is just inside main gate.

Although did anyone else get a weird mental image from the thread title?

Guardroom is just inside main gate.
The Guard Commander (Big Bloke behind desk in Guardroom just inside main gate) will check you off the list, ask if you would like a newspaper, remind you where the dining hall is for breakfast and call the porter to take your luggage to your room.











Sorry couldn't resist :twisted:

Just take the train. Your mum will only embarrass you at the gate by crying, calling you her little soldier and spitting on a tissue to clean your face.

I was going to but they insisted and it would be hard to refuse. Especially since i handed in my warrant.

Also didn't notice the typo in the name. It's edited, thanks for not taking the p*ss.

used to be at ATR B - jus take warrant with you. They do a reception and dont mind parents dropping you off. They get a quick tour so they know we will look after you - then they leave - then it starts lol
