Tabbing - tips for shorties?

#1
Hi all,

I've just finished week-end 1 of my TA basic training where I've discovered that being the shortest in my cadre is not exactly going to benifit me when it comes to tabbing.

Are there any tips anyone can give me on how to keep up with my male daddy long leg colleagues?!

Thanks

Make sure you start at the front next to the PTI then when you start to slow cos your stumpy legs don't spread far enough the start the Brecon shuffle.
You'll be fine, grizz it out

thanks guys!

I'll make sure I push myself to the front, march as fast as my short legs will carry me, then shuffle once i start to drop back!

will practice most nights before week-end 2 and just grit my teeth

I've seen at least one airborne forces PTI around that height, so it's definitely possible to be a shortarse and capable of doing the job. It's probably about stretching your legs and sheer willpower.

Perhaps you should just accept the reality of your situation and head off back to The Shire to rejoin the rest of your Hobbit bretheren?

Only children, amputees and circus carneys are any shorter than 6'.

It sounds like you need to get yourself down to the big top and get an application filled out.

OR

anyone over 5'10 are circus giant freaks...

you care to join me under the big top?
Nice one Hightower.

I shouldn't worry you'll fit in well in the TA. Whenever I see a gaggle of Stabs they invariably look like a DPM version of The Bash Street Kids, all sorts of shapes and sizes kitted out in ill fitting clothing.

There will also be at least 2 with skin conditions, 1 with a shit 1980's issue fullscrew tache and a Mr McGoo lookalike.
