Ok thanks that clears it up a bit, i was just curious as my recruiter couldnt give me a start date for Royal Artillery when i did my barb test, his screen was just blank for Royal Artillery intakes.
So if im found to be a good recruit at selection i should get a phase 1 start date in the near future?
I can't comment on start dates and the like, however, I have it on firm authority following a conversation with a senior Gunner officer in the know at Larkhill that whilst we've slowed the process the tap has not been turned off. We made that mistake in the 90s briefly (as an Army) and suffered the ramifications for quite some time thereafter.
The Army is still quite a big beast and as such things take time. It took almost a year from me walking through the doors of a recruiting office to walking through the gates of Sandhurst. Patience young padewan...
Hopefully if I pass selection Iv been given 3rd January from my intake to the RA and I know theres another intake on the 10th January so the're still recruiting it just depends what date they give you. Good Luck anyway!
