First weekend

#1
Apologies if this is repetitive but I couldn't find a similar thread.

I'm going on my 1st weekend next week. Does anyone know what this usually entails?

Is this selection (No green kit, haven't been attested yet) or Phase 1/TSC(A) (Green kit issued, sworn an oath etc) you're referring to?

Have a look on here - CLICK

When you're on there, tell reni_77 what you think of him for his disgusting comments about TA soldiers.

reni_77 is obviously a wind up. Everytime someone bites he uses the "I'm starting training soon", to get the red mist to descend

Your first weekend will involve your bird with the fake tits taking one up the shitter from one of her work mates, whilst you're out playing soldiers with the rest of the stabs.
Have a good one.

This is TSC(A), I've done selection and got all my kit etc
Off to Grantham, perchance? I'll hazard a guess there's going to be plenty of foot drill and PT, plus a bit of death by powerpoint just to vary things - most everyone else at my unit who has done it recently did the 9-day version so I'm not sure what's first on the syllabus for the weekend-based version.

Your first weekend should be good. You will get some rifle training, some PT including an aerobic fitness assessment (AFA) which is the mile and a half in under 14 mins like you would have done for your selection and a night out in a bash (combat camping). If you’re lucky, you will get some drill too......enjoy!

It's my first weekend down in Strensil too.
Only thing i don't know is what Kit to take.

I'm sure it'll be an easy(ish) introduction into the TA.
If its TSC(A) take everything you have been issued. If its selection take change of clothes, de-odorant etc, running shoes and a towel

:D :D We had a sweaty sock collapse with heat exhaustion on his "first weekend". No one could work out why until his bergen was removed. Weighed a ton! He had brought "all his issued kit" including a kilt, brogues, sporran etc etc.

The Shetlanders got issued everything, including No.2's, at once as they did not have a QM store on the islands and got issued everything from HQ in Elgin.

Hope your weekend went well with plenty of combat camping :)
