Don't worry mate. I'm 33 and start BT in October. I will be 34 before I finish basic in February.

I agree mate. I am physically and mentally stronger than I was 15 years ago. Really looking forward to the challenge . Good luck
Yes definitely mate, I have my daughter so I'm alot more mature and know alot more about myself than I would have if I had joined in my teens

Think its just us two mate. Hopefully we end up in the same section, did you see the additional information pdf file in your portal? We are operating solely as rooms for first 14 days because of Covid. I'm assuming its like 5 people per room. If the intakes are halved it means there will be like 15 people per platoon.

Basically lads from what my recruiter has told me , once you've finished your self isolation period your free to mingle with other groups that have also self isolated but your not allowed to leave camp until training has finished so unfortunately no families weekend etc. Ill let you know more when I find out as one of my school mates goes to pirbright tomorrow (if he can get onto his phone ).
