Put your full number on mate - stops any confusion.

No idea about the trunks - would have thought that any would be ok though.

Wah?

If not, then you may not be cut out for the Army. You will be given orders and tasks at various stages. If you can't follow simple things like joining instructions then you've got no chance.

Keep your head down, ears open and do what you're told, and you may get through.

Why not think outside the box and take a set of both? Swimwear will be the least of your worries though mate! Its only 3 months or so, you'll be able to wear what you like afterwards.

Most of the lads used plain black shorts or trunks when i was at pirbright if not we were allowed to use PT shorts. Either way take a pair of speedo's anyway incase.

Speedos. And don't fret, you'll all be in them, so you won't look silly.

Well, only as silly as the rest of the lads.
Thats what I thought! alas all the blokes bought swimming shorts and the PTI's didnt mind. I was the only one in peado speedo's!! Arrgh!

Just put the last four of your Reg No on as you will more than likely find everyone will start with the first four probably 2522**** or there abouts at the moment.
If I was you Id also ensure you stick the S's down on the SpeedoS trunks so your not mistaken for somebody nasty if they fell off. :roll: :wink:

Muck in with the rest of your platoon, dont gob off, work as a team and enjoy yourself.

Christ, Greg, not fair, mate. It's made clear at the ACIO to take Speedos, so good call on your part, but unlucky for having to wear them.

2525, thats wrong too. All numbers have changed since JPA. They now begin with 300?????

Very confusing.

Still shows the new from the old!
