Is this the POM course or the regular Oggie one, as you will need beer for the Oggie one and beer and pies for the POM one.

[Serious mode] These courses are well worth going on. They literally do what they say on the tin, from the mess to the field. [/Serious mode]

Some of the things that you will do

build bridges
build rafts
Fanny about with Plastic Explosive (under close supervision)
Fanny about on high ropes stuff
Fanny about in fast boats on the Medway and get wet
Do some PT/Games
Look around the workshops at Chatham
Visit an Armoured Regiment (operational commitments permitting)

Not necessarily in this order. You'll be based at Gibraltar Barracks and coached to other locations like Chatham as necessary.

so its bullshitting to civis
recruitment (ri'krut:t'ment) n 1. orchestrated campaign to convince the gullible that life in the Army is all about having a great time in the NAAFI after work with your best mates 2. activity that attracts the some of finest tour dodging pie-munchers to perpetuate the un-truths about weekly windsurfing and ski trips to simpletons 3. process that is passed to an outsourcing company for the which the collqial term "passion fingers" was created on account of their ability to f**k up everything they touch

Does anyone know when I can be misled on a propaganda trip? I have to go so they'll let me go to selection. I can't wait to be disappointed.

Okay serious now, when is the next RE insight course?

P.S. Diggerdaddy is not my daddy. The milkman is.

Ill let you know , so long as you gob off to regular soldiers when you visit Chatham and Gibraltar Barracks. On the condition that its got to be equal if not better than what you say here.

Shit! took me hours to come up with that.[

In that case, have you given any thought to the RLC insight course ?

Couldn't find the sarcasm font for earlier post.

I'm always respectful to people who love press ups. When I was a cadet I had to do the odd set of press ups because of some ******** in the group. I went on two courses with the Marines and on one of them someone in the group really pissed them off. But if I think I can get away with it I'll make a joke so long as it's just me doing press ups when no one laughs.
