All of that is broken up into very long and hard arduous weeks of training, your papers state these lessons as a rough guide but in reality you,ll be hitting the road every day from week 1. you will start out with a four mile march then by the end of the week its six miles then 7 then 8 and as the days go on the weight increases rapidly so when you get used to carrying 30lb in the next 2 days its 45lb and a longer distance.

Sense of humour does disappear and the training can put a strain on your mentality and turn you a bit grumpy at times but thats exactly why you joined.

This is all wrong, its 26 weeks of learning table manners for tea parties...surely?? That's what I did on my CIC 8O I left at week 22 because i accidently dropped my saucer, and said "sh1t,F^ck,C*unt!" instead of "oh my deary me, mary poppins would you please pass the dustpan and brush for me deary"
