Have my medical on Tuesday Evening (UPDATE)

#1
Just curious...normally you have your medical at the selection weekend aswell as your fitness test right?

i have my medical on Tuesday evening and if i pass that im away to Catterick a week later for the weekend to hang with a para squadran.

Is it because the regiment is fairly new and they just wanna fast track anything?

As far as I understand it, your unit is responsible for your administration (documents, medical, pay etc) and the Regional Training Centre for your training, which includes the selection weekend.

If you have contact lenses then take them out at least 24 hours before hand, as they will do your eyesight and all that, and taking them out 5mins before the test doesn't do it...

So I'm told.
