This is my first post, since joining. I'm currently trying to join the TA, in the 7 Rifles. Waiting for my medical to go through, then go through my last few interviews and selection. I've been working on fitness for a while and have even gone to the local barracks to join in a PT session with the 7 Rifles. My 1.5 mile run time is at 13:10 at the moment. I've heard so many conflicting reports for the time required. All I want to know is what time do I need to run it in, to pass selection? I can also do 50 situps and 50 press ups in 2 minutes each. I am also hoping to go on to become an assault pioneer. I've been told there are places available at 7 Rifles for that. My other question is that if I go on to become an assailt pionner, can I keep my Rifles cap badge? Can't wait to get going with training. Sat in on a couple of lessons, including one on the GPMG the other night. Cheers.
