Good evening/morning Gentlemen, First post, shouldn't be too controversial (one hopes)... I've recently attended AOSB Briefing, where I gained a Cat 2 (12 months, due to a poor physical performance and insufficient "life experience"). I remember somewhere in the mists of time asking my ACA when it might be a good idea to write to regiments to arrange familiarisation visits, and he said that it was best to wait until (and this is where my memory gets hazy) after either having completed Briefing or Main Board. I can't for the life of me remember which it was. I would write to him, but I've now changed catchment area due to moving to go to university, and come under the responsibility of the ACA for LONDIST, a post I understand is currently vacant. This leaves me in a bit of a quandary. I'm keen to stay active on the application front (aside from the obvious fitness work I need to do), so if I were to get some fam visits under my belt that would be great, but if I'm best off waiting, then so be it. Time isn't a huge issue; I'm 18 and am in my first year at University. The time restriction placed on me at Briefing means I can't attempt Main Board until September at the earliest, and my degree means I won't be entering RMAS until 2015 (assuming plain sailing with all of the admin). I'd really appreciate any and all advice you can give. Thanks, HWM. P.S. The Regiments I'm most interested in at the moment are the Coldstream Guards, the King's Royal Hussars, The Rifles, or the Mercian Regiment. The Welsh angle isn't hugely important (best username I could think of), although I suppose it'll make things easier when the Six Nations is on.
