Hey guys, I appologise in advance for blowing my own trumpet but I'm proud to say I passed ADSC! Got back from pirbright yesterday feeling like my body had been battered to pieces but had an excellent two days.

Yeah anyone who is waiting to go ADSC the one piece of advice which I think is most important is 'just get stuck in' I was nervous waiting at the train station but soon as the other lads turned up we all started chatting and having a laugh and nerves just whent. Also if your really nervous about the icebreaker don't be. Just be confident and think about what your going to say, some lads were so nervous they stopped speaking and just looked at the ceiling which didnt go down too well.
When you do team tasks you get 2 mins to devise a plan, make sure you have a definate plan and you have nominated people to do certain things, my first team task when down like a lead balloon and we got beasted for it. The sergeants and test examiners are sh*t hot on the team tasks so definately get stuck in as much as you can. The run isn't too bad but the pt lesson is hard. Oh and for gods sake remember, one stripe on the arm and you call them corporal, two stripes you call them sergeant if you dont know call the women maam and the men sir! One lad called a sergeant corporal and got ten pressups. Above all though lads just enjoy it, I had an excellent time.

Im sorry to say that, 1 stripe is a lance corporal and you call him corporal, 2 stripes is a corporal and 3 is a sergeant.

Well done man!
What are you hoping to do?

I remember on my 1.5, the guy in front of me just before the final straight on the Pirbright run he got pushed on by a sergeant and said "Yes corporal" the sarg went fu**ing nuts and chased after him while beasting him to move his arse to the end as fast as he could.

I Laughed, while breating through my arrse.
