  4. It's good if you stand in the middle of the footbridge over to minley manor. Be sure to take your beret off and lean nonchalantly against the railings with a fag in your mouth. That way passing motorists and anyone using the bridge will see you're busy and leave you alone.

  5. I now understand why the sign by the road says "slow troops crossing"

  7. Vodafone is probably the best network to use there to be fair but you will be running piano and bridges far too often to have time to use your phone.

    Maybe the DS at Gib have gone soft, but this lad is just crying out for his trg party to be afforded some extra "attention" in January.

    Hopefully the OP will have more on his plate than mobile phone signal worries.
     
  10. See. That's why I'm glad I'm not in the Army anymore. It just gets tougher and tougher.

    Afghanistan I could hack. But having to complete Phase 1 & 2 with a shit mobile signal?

    We should petition. Or start a new charity.

  11. Surely there is ample time to queue at the phone boxes outside the guardroom nervously waiting for a bored RP Cpl to come along and jail you or give you a couple of hours of quick change parades. Please someone reassure me that the phones are still there and this fine tradition remains :)

    If I gave a shit.
     
  13. Exactly, **** the Phase 2 training and onward career...............................................it's all about getting a mobile signal !



    Edited to add; "**** my old boots"
     
  14. I couldn't get any mobile signal when I was there either.

    WTF Is this desire to be bound to your phone these days?
