    Congrats .. I just passed out of Pirbright. First 7 weeks are a bit of a shock to the system but the last 7 will fly by. Are you doing 3 weeks PT then starting your 14 weeks? wish you the best of luck : )

  10. My brother was telling me about the 3/4 weeks PT he had to do before basic. Is that your choice or not?

    Not sure everyone gets the choice or will have to do it but I heard of a few who went early ahead of the rest of the intake to do it. It's still only a trial at the moment I think, though it may well become compulsory for everyone or maybe just those who need it.

  13. My step-bro did it before basic 10 years ago. Described it as 4 weeks of torture, but in a good way.
