Question about passport

I'm starting in pirbright in january and I just got my joining instructions. It says there is a "world war I Realities of war tour" which i asume is aborad. I recall at some point my recruiter asking me if I had a passport (mines is out of date and no longer valid) and it has never been mentioned since. Will I need to get a new one prior to joining up or will the army supply one?

Do yourself a favour and get your own NOW that way you won't be sat in your room on your own when your mates are doing their trip to Flanders!

You mean the army may not supply one in time?
Mate, get your passport sorted yourself, it's just easier to have it done before you get in, work on your phys, both endurance, speed and upper body strength, give up the fags and buy a good steam iron and you'll be fine. Good luck!

The Army don't provide passports but if you're disappearing overseas on duty, say a six month tour, they will pay for it. Advice above is sound, get it sorted now before you're left on your own during the Battlefield Tour.

from reading over threads, people say take a ironing board because if you dont, there is only 2 to share between alot of you, therefore u wanna get it all done quick so you got mroe time to get ready etc

A proper board is best and easiest to use, but if that isn't feasible then get down to Lakeland and buy a an ironing mat and some thick towels. Provided you get it perfectly flat (use a table, but put the towels down first to protect it from the heat) it's nearly a good as a board. Good for courses or when luggage space is limited.

Every time new recruits turn up at least three of them have ironing boards,then when they leave they cant be bothered taking them home.
Trust me there will be enough ironing boards!!!!
