  1. Good evening all!

    I have got a place on an MPC course in February and was just wondering what I should expect.

    I've heard it's mainly orders with a bit of drill thrown in for good measure.

    Don't really know anything else other than that!

    Can anyone give me a heads up - anything I need to take with me to make the course easier/more comfortable?

    Thanks in advance!!
  2. The instructors carry a pistol, anyone that shows signs of weakness or hesitation gets shot.

  3. Are you Dixon of Dock Green?
  4. Would you not ask the folk in your unit who have done the course or am I being too sensible?
  5. What is MPC ?

    Orders, Orders in the field, Drilling a squad, basic weapon handling supervision, Couple of PFT's, room inspections of others, lack of sleep, that kind of shizz. Been a while, so bits have probably changed.
  7. I would ask people in my unit but I'm part of a national TA unit so don't really see anyone very often!

    Thanks C_d for the one sensible answer!
  8. Polar69 - it's basically a corporal's course. For promotion from L/Cpl to Cpl
  9. Since you didn't specify national or regional, I was not been unreasonable in my suggestion.
  10. Nice one, good luck.
  11. It's like Junior Brecon but with Down's Syndrome.

  12. I heard there's an endurance march with 29kg, not to mention your hands handcuffed to your ankles tabbing 6 minute miles. For extra morale the PTI has a horse whip which he spanks stragglers with.....and NO biff wagon
  13. Bloody hell, it was so much harder in my day. Bet they have quilts too!!!! Herumph!
