KGVI Frimley park

#1
To anyone that has done it, what is the above course like? how different is it to the A.I's course.
Is there any prep that i can do prior to attending this course that will help me through.
I'm looking forward to doing it but its nice to find out what its all about from those that have already been there and done it.

Many thanks

The KGVI is a much more demanding course then the AIs course. Whereas the AIs course spoon feeds you with a mix of skill at arms, map reading and foot drill the KGVI requires much more self-study late into the night. My KGVI involved the following: weapon handling tests, lecture on the ACFA, lecture on drug awareness, lecture on Army recruiting, many hours preparing orders, command tasks, fieldcraft (lots of planning and rehearsals for two exercises involving ambushes and night patroling), field demonstrations, training with pyrotechnics, planning exercise and a discussion about child protection. I don't think the format has changed too much since I was there. It'd be wise to brush up on the orders process beforehand.

Fully agree with C_B. As always wise words, sir

I remember doing Fire Control Orders followed by Section Attacks on the Monday morning. That was in 1992 (September to be exact), so things have probably changed.

Good luck Filltilt77

Thanks for the comments, i will look into what has been mentioned and get my head into the books. I'm also booked to do an alcohol and drugs awareness course in Oct so that should come in handy, must say that i am already fairly aware due to seeing many friends and a brother included playing with all kinds of stuff.

Saa i'm cool with, but due to that my fieldcraft has slipped...

Hope i do as well at the KGVI as i did on my A.I's course.

The old bumpkin is right, my additions are:
1, Take at minimum 3 sets of CS95.
2, At least 2 pair of boots, one for the field.
3, A good knowledge of extracting and preparing a full set of orders.
4, A good knowledge of how to make a model.
5, Full knowledge of IC and 2IC roles in a section.
6, Full webbing, not SAA, you will need the extra pouches.

PM me your email address if you need anything.

I think we have the same view on this one C_B. I really enjoyed my KGV1, yes its hard work at times, but I throughly enjoyed it, especially the field exercises. Defiantly worth doing the course.

Ok, let's re-open this post.....I am hoping to go on my KGVI in September so any tips/hints would be great... I am on trg wg at the moment and have a decent instructructor to work alongside to refresh my memory from when I did my Tac course back in 2001 !!

Doing my KGVI next week. Do I need a model kit? Anything I should take? Got a couple of nirex folders for orders

Made a model kit up today. Fits nicely in an old SLR cleaning kit box too. As I recall we don't use chalk on ponchos any more in case we're bumped half way through the O Group or am I over thinking this?

Didn't need model kit. We only extract orders and do a paper exercise. No O group now. Plenty on Safe System Of Training, running exercises with blanks and pyro. No EASP now. Two sided sheet called the Exercise Aide Memoire. Hmmm wonder if they'll find there way onto the ranges too. Still it's a good course. WHTs tomorrow on Trip flare, smoke grenade and the rest.
