Requires a clip board with two random VRNs written on it for full effect. "I'm trying to track these two vehs down for the MT Sgt".
discontented said:16 AA do A LOT of exercises... not just little ones either, these involve the entire brigade, the AAC, RAF (heli and airborne warrior delivery method - C130) and a hole montage of supporting units. The exercises come round thick and fast too, usually lasting for a couple of weeks at a time. Before ex the whole week is taken up testing your kit, check and test, check and test!!!! When you get back, role dependant but that following week youâre going to be cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning - Kit, weapons (hope to god youâre not stuck with a gimpy - complete Ar5e to clean!!!) vehicles, if your sigs then you got the radio kit to test and sign back in (after a clean of course), stores are also quite busy brewing up and making sure all the g10 crap is back in place, after all stores are for storing!!!
Rest of the time is taken up with phys phys phys, Fridays were my fav; you can never beat a good ol' tab after spending all of Thursday night in the toon. Mil training is thrown in for good measure when there is a 'lull' in activities, either that or 'sports' (read into that what you will).
Most weekends are yours to do what you will within reason (sadly fighting is not one of said good reasons and you will inevitably have fewer weekends to yourself for your troubles). Early knock off on Friday means come 1300hrs, thereâs a mad rush heading for the A12; think wacky races though I'm going to assume youâre too young to know what I'm on about.
Then obviously you got tour after tour to take off, think maybe 1 every 12 / 18 months and youâre about on the money.
Finally, if I'm honest and most of the older guys on here are prob thinking it too, your first 6 months are pretty much going to be taken up with brewing up for everyone, cleaning up for everyone (find a good brush handle, less blisters) and generally being a bitch to anyone who is senior to you.. And yes, for all you guys who don't know that does mean other privates. That and getting very, VERY drunk... initiation drinks anyone hmmmmm
Hope that scratches your itch fella, green light, go!!!!!
