If it was anything like mine (pull up a sand bag time!) which was an RE carder then basic infantry stuff you may not have done a lot of was my big thing. Then of cause phys. Just prepare yourself for good old bullshit polishing. Oh and more phys. Everything else will be taught to you.
Oh did I say up to speed with the phys?

Unless there was referring to the location as in there was no fitness evident, as oppossed to saying "there, their fitness was a joke"

Y2KGeordie,

I'm assuming you're infantry. If that is so then you will do a two week cadre course that is choc full of PT and orders. 303 SMLE wrote a pretty good summary of his course here: PJNCO Cadre Course

As Sandy The Guvnor wrote, work on your fitness! There's plenty of time left. Tabbing is the big one that weeds the men from the boys on Infantry course and they're designed to be physically and mentally testing. Good luck mate!

At a guess, most of the TA Infantry! It is the compulsory course for Pte - LCpl promotion which is centrally run rather than the old "in house" system, and held at ITC Catterick.

It begs the question what where they doing on a Cadre?
