I'm new to this website so without trying to open a massive can of worms it would be intresting to hear other people's opinion's on the matter, as I certainly don't claim to know everything. One of my major winge's with the Signals has allways been PT. Most units probably do PT twice or maybe three times a week at most which isn't a lot but certainly better than nothing of course. My gripe is probably directed a lot at med centre's, we all know that a large % of people going sick in the core in normal units are people who just want to get out of PT. I'm not sure what the answer is but perhaps commanders could take more of an intrest into suspect case's? Whilst recently at Blandford on my class 1 cse, I was shocked by the number of overweight, downgraded or soldiers on the sick on the camp. When we did do PT on the cse nearly half the cse were not there, shouldn't this be reflected on there cse report's. However none of the instructors on my class 1 are intrested, and I see even less of them ever do any form of PT. In summary it is now far to easy to get out of doing any PT at all. Having spent most of my career in infantry of specialist units, where you are ridiculed if you do not meet the standard of fitness. It is a shame to see in normal units or Blandford that it is just accepted as the norm to go sick, or be overweight, what happend to the pride in being fit?
