Feels like they’re throwing info at us left right and centre with no process or revision time. Do you get much evening time after week 2-3 to actually study lessons and crack on with admin ?
Week 1 is the easiest week - starting soon you will get pushed for timings and start marching around and going on exercise which is hard
It’s not to bad in my troop anyways. We weren’t allowed to the shops till week 4 and still can’t go to papa johns till after EX HALFWAY as training team does things differently. They get stricter on locker inspections and timings but have more free time in the evenings. Ex first nights isn’t hard unless you are late and unorganised
Thanks just struggling atm thinking every week is like the first haha

My son is about to go into week 4. He found week one tough as it’s is definitely a shock to the system. But now he has got into a routine and is really enjoying it. It’s hard work but determined to get through it.Phase 1 is no joke 1 week in and all we’ve done is iorn and drill feet are throbbing and head is melting trying to process all the information. Hopefully is gets a bit easier with routine. Anyone any tips is appreciated

Welcome to phase one training. Don't forget though, your section commanders are actually there to help too. You just have to pluck up the courage to admit you are struggling to them, and ask for it.Thanks. Just feel like there’s no time to learn the things they teach us and get a bollocking for not learning it etc etc
From what I know from my son is that you get given blue bands as soon as you arrive and then you stay within your section for 2 weeks and then as long as no one has any symptoms you move to green bands after the first 2 weeks.So anyone who’s been to pirbright over covid and had to do the blue and green bands and tips and advice would be appreciated even if it’s private messages. Thanks.
