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 ).
I'm going in tomorrow. Had it confirmed by section commander no long weekend! It's more due to the condensed training I think, as we're already losing 2 weeks!

Just one point, its not prison nor is it school. Your phone is a part of your kit list for a reason.

Exactly for some people contact with home Is the only way they get through training
Yup your phone is kept in lockers during the day, assuming Pirbright is the same as Catterick but after 5 or 6pm pretty much free reign on your devices bar the obvious if your on exercise, no contact with home. PM your FB name if you want mate as were both in 16th of August.

Its not really recruit specific, but I don't know if its something just thrown about, call the recruitment line and ask one be sent to you while your on the phone. Easily done.

Its mainly just the joining instructions mate that im more bothered about like the kit list as not 100% sure what i need to buy. As for the info PDF i was told it was something about covid or something i dont know if its even important
Not sure how id show proof haha

don't bother showing proof, just ask for the kit list, it can be found on the web i believe so i'm not sure why anyone would apply OPSEC to it :/
