Ignore Red Square, he is a bit of a dick.


You'd get more replies if you ask this Q in the TA Forum.

HOWEVER... if the syllabus is the same as the one at my RTC - which it almost certainly will be - you'll do some fitness, have some non-demanding lessons and spend a night in the field.

Make sure you take all of your kit, despite whatever your unit tells you. Take wash and shave kit, spare shreddies / socks, a few £ in case. You'll also need a sense of humour.

Its the beginning of a great adventure, enjoy it.

Dont forget tent pegs, your rifle lessons will be intense, a lot to take in and they are demanding unless you have done it before.

I am boring my self now, just turn up, with all your kit, and go for it.

If Altcar is anything like other RTC's you do not need to take issued trainers which are sh1te. Take proper trainers that you normally run in and suit you; unless the PTI's are completely **** (v likely) no dramas.

How did you find it then?

Altcar is class, although at some points you think you don't wanna be there, at the end you miss it. Have a laugh and make some good mates.

My Bold You'll learn in time thqat you don't go to the very top of the organisation for what are pretty simple answers. You should have asked a Bdr or your Troop Sergeant Major. And remember the pneumonic NOBA:

Not
Officers'
Business
Admin!

But seriously, I'm disheartened to hear that he didn't even point you in the right direction!
