i'm curious to hear what basic training's like. i've seen the dvd and at one point, it shows a group of lads being shown how to iron a shirt, is this genuine?! and from what i've seen on other posts; i don't have a problem with authority or being shouted at (as long as it ends within 12 weeks ), i can spell, read, write and march, possibly all at the same time, and i can read a map. i've got my BARB tests this afternoon and hopefully i'll get a good enough score to go into the intelligence corps. if anyone can give an insight into how their phase 2 training is different to phase 1, that would be great.
