  1. Hullo,

    I know there are many threads concerning these courses, but I was confirmed onto this course a while back and was told I would receive joining instructions soon after.

    Is anyone else going on this date and has anyone received there joining instructions yet?

    Cheers ABB

  4. Hiya mate,

    I'm bringing a small olive green rucksack for the day sack, so to answer your question, yes. Personally I am getting there by car, as I live quite locally.

    You? Also, what are you going to wear when you arrive?

    Cheers ABB

  5. Probably just wear jeans and a casual shirt, seeing as I'm going by rail.
    Also I'm going to try and borrow a patrol pack off one of my mates in the cadets.
    See you there.

  6. The JIs should have the final word, but if it doesn't say then I would turn up in a suit.

  7. I will be going in a suit because there is no information regarding what to arrive wearing, and that seems like the safest option as it is a Potential officers course, I think they are expected to be smarter.

  8. Briefing notes say to travel in casual clothing, obviously not ripped jeans, offensive t-shirts ect. So I'm just going to wear smart-casual; jeans, t-shirt, trainers.

  9. My joining instructions don't actually say anything regarding clothing, but if that is the case I will follow the trend.
