Phase 1 start date usually on a Monday?

#1
Evening,

Just wanted to know, some people have said yes others have said it's always a sunday?!

I know someone who's starting shortly and I'm sure they said to me it's a monday they start

can someone in the know clear the matter up?

Cheers

BW

Everyone who joins will have received instructions for doing so; these should include all appropriate timings etc.

When I was DS at ATR(P), rcts turned up on Sun in prep for course start on the Mon am.

Anybody ever struggled to get there on a Sunday? I've looked at trains for me to get to Pirbright, and its gonna take 15 hours! With 4 stops - great fun!!!!

Could do it loads quicker on a week day, but never mind - these things are sent to try us!

ATR (B) is a sunday

The easiest thing to do is listen to your recruiter when he gives you your joining instructions and travel warrant because he has your SSR on the computer with your enlistment details. The date will also be on your 271W (copy of contract) and the (271A)contract you sign in the careers office when you attest. Joining Instructions will have timings and date on as different courses will have different days and timings for all different ATR's for junior or adults. Your recruiter knows best :D

my recruiting Sgt said that changed and you "attest" at basic now...
You read your oath at the recruiting office before you go. Then you sign your contract on the 2nd day of basic.

All proper Army courses start on a Sunday. That way the Army can pinch yet another day off you plus give you the initiative test of travelling across country by train with a *reduced service* caused by engineering works. It also puts the DS in a bad mood ready to beast people. :)
