  2. On week 19/20 you missed out lose sense of humour.
  3. Thats because it happens throughout.
  4. 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.
  5. cudnt have said it any better, that is exactly why you joined...
  6. 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"
  7. May sound like a stupid question but its a serious one lol.

    During ITC do you pay for your own brekky,dinner,tea?
  8. this is a good point...other ph2s are PAYD, so what's score with CIC?
