excitments kicking in now!...

#1
Just done my Oath Of Allegiance this morning, got my certificate, train ticket, kit list, and arriving at Catterick info booklet.

Getting really excited/nervous now as its only 21 days till i go (1st july)

In the booklet it says we visit the 'Leeds Armory Museum' is this definate? and is it any good?

Anyone got any other info/advice they could share with me that would be great.

Many thanks.

Brett

Oh i'm not very far.
Just looking into various options here and there.

Tried out for the Royal Marines almost 3 years ago but didn't get it.
Was a bit gutted about it but, thats life. Now possibly looking into other areas. Got a mate I might be joining up with.

Anyway good luck to you mate.

Not really much to offer just my congratulations mate.

I held off my application for a couple of months as i had some bits going on home and wanted to work on my fitness some more. Ive got to go to my ACO run club end of this week and confirm my run times again and then get my selection dates. Cant wait.

Good luck matey!!

Listen to your instructors (never the "old sweat" who is 3 or 4 weeks ahead of you, unless they are saying the same thing as your instructor). Work as hard as you are capable of (there will be temptations to "slack off" at times, resist them) in everything you do. So listen/learn and try your best.

Good luck young-un and welcome into a second family. You are right to be proud, excited and a little nervous.
