    Took 26kg on Saturday, to make it a bit more interesting.

  6. Doing 25kg / 6 miles on sunday as we're daft / nails.
  7. I thought CFT was 8 miles?
  8. TA CFT is to be 6 miles unless mobilised then it goes upto 8 miles. Thats what I have been told any way.

  9. Don't worry, I won't be rushing to help you again next time.

    What additional training have you received?

  11. I thought 6 miles was April onwards? The MATT2 as laid down this year specifies 4 miles in not less than 57'30.

    After April we go to 6, then 8 in 2008.

    Wasn't 8 what we used to do?
  12. Shouting GRRRR a lot, and fablonning pictures of Chuck Norris.

  13. It's 4 for bounty this training year ie til April, 6 if you're deploying and then next year as PTP says.

    Not for us it is not!

    CO's directive states that 4 Para will train to MATT level 1 standard. MATT 2 will be tested at 8 miles in 2 hours, but the Bn will train to 10 miles in 2 hours.

    Only exceptions for Para Regt cap badge personnel are elderly (as defined in MATTs) or med downgraded who may be given an exception by the TM.

    Other attached arms are at MATT 2 standard.

    Max benefit, and the blokes love it!
