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 youâre lucky, you will get some drill too......enjoy!
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
