Dear all, I'm waiting for my AOSB. In the meantime, I'd like to do what I can to maximise my chance of getting into the kick-ass infantry regiment of my choice. Problem is, I don't have any military relatives nor many military friends on tap. I didn't go to cadets. And, moreover, I am a city boi innit and while I am fairly fit and know on which side of a tree moss grows and a which farmyard animals sleep standing up, I assume this is hardly the fieldcraft headstart that I'll need to impress at Sandhurst. So does anyone have any ideas about how I could go about training myself up a bit this respect? Perhaps recommend a good book on subjects like miltary tactics, survival, fieldcraft etc? And any particularly worthwhile activities to engage in? So far, I've planned a bit of hiking few the Yorkshire Dales, and I regularly do bouldering , boxing, football and running. Anyway, any advice very much appreciated.
