    Go by car then, as long as its not your own - IIRC recruits can't bring their vehicles onto camps...

    Yeah they meet you at the train station. Don't take too much junk as they pile you all into a mini bus together. Make sure you wear a suit and wear it properly ;)

    Make sure it's a smart suit, and wear it smartly, not like it's a school uniform ;)

    Enjoy it, Lichfield was good, although I may be looking back with rose tinted glasses now because I distinctly remember sitting in the smoking sheds staring into the distance trying to think of 10 reasons to DAOR 8)
