Anyone know what we are doing about haircuts before we go? And will the local shop on base be open for supplies? I still need seal bags small and large and wash bag with mirror and what type of flask does it have to be?

Cheers and Didn’t want to buy it all from shop when I arrive.

On the new kit list they've sent me there's a new 'get you in pack' which is free it says this includes "padlocks, tent pegs, wash bags, flask, torch and sewing kit" not sure if this will include seal bags too

No worries that’s pretty good then what a relief I guess

It's good, managed to get a hold of some weights and been training boxing still so should be too bad. What sort of run times are you getting?
They're not too great but passable for my job role. The last time I did 1.2 miles I got 10:44mins but recently just been running a 5km every 2 days at around 30 mins. Quite hilly where I live so that helps too. Just need to work on speed over a short distance, think I'm going to start doing HIIT and hill sprints more.

Did you already have a date before they all get cancelled? I think they will prioritise the people who had dates cancelled first I would've thought

Yep I had 2 dates mate. One in February but they had got my job choice wrong, and one in April. And I’m a rejoiner... here’s to hoping it’s soon
