I understand that JPA is playing merry havoc with the mobilisations for Herrick 9. Something to do with the JPA equivalent of a Line Serial Number for your Regular Unit not being issued from the bowels of JPA, therefore you can not be mobilised by Glasgow.

So chances are that you may not be mobilised in time and you will look like a complete c@ck in front of your civie employer.

Corrunna Coy, 6 Rifles at Chilwell now.
On behalf of Imjin Coy; pull the pin now lads - save yourselves before it's too late :twisted:

On a more serious note, bring webbing with you in September - manbags are no use. And beg, borrow or steal more UBACs shirts - the yanks go mad for them :D

same here mate. hopfully i can bluff my way through chilwell. so are you off to sennelager straight after that? you'll need to save a space at the bar for me 8)

im not too sure how strict chilwell are? apparently on the dental side its pretty black or white, either you're dentally fit i.e. not likely to become a dental casualty within the next 6 months or your tusks are a bag of shite and they'll give you a big fcuk off pill! ive just had to spunk 350 quid on getting my gnashers in good order (last time i saw a dentist was on my release medical fm the RN 10 years ago :oops: )

on your other point, yep, i should hopefully be out in ze farzerland by late next month!

which sqn have you been allocated a pid?

the dental is what i'm worried about. i've never seen the dentist since 2004 and where i live you can't get any to see you. as for which SQN i haven't got a clue with anything thing like that

Go private and save yourself the embarrassment of being f**ked off by Chilwell and the eternal piss taking by your mates.

Just ask how much a check up is before you agree to an appointment.

I totally agree, i thought my teeth were fine, then after the check up i needed 3 fillings, an extraction and a trip to the hygeneist!

Squidypie, ive spoke to the RCMO a few times and he seems to think that jobs etc will be decided later. I have apparently been posted to A sqn but he said that its subject to change. Looks as though im going to be employed in a support tpr role....Nice!
