I have recently been accepted to join the army, and my date of joining is the 28th July at ATR Pirbright. I am obviously well pleased to have got through recruitment, but I am dissapointed that I am having to wait 5 months to join. When I first went into the AFCO in November, my recruitment Sergeant told me that there was a waiting list you could go on if you wanted to go in earlier (ie you could potentially take the place of someone who drops out). I have been back in touch with my AFCO, but the original Sergeant who took me through the process has left, and another has took his place. When I asked him about going earlier he just said that its not possible, and to just wait until July! Does anyone know if this waiting list is true, or do I just take what the second Sergeant has said as gospel? I will wait until July, I just did'nt want to be sitting on my thumbs for another 5 months!
