Did a search for this and couldn't find a thread.... I was looking at the army website (don't ask, quiet day!) and I saw the piece on the 8.7 mile march and shoot. http://www.army.mod.uk/hqschinf/itc_catterick/itc_information/combat_infantryman_s_course/index.htm Now the thing that surprised me was 55lbs. Does anyone know what that includes? I'm assuming it includes everything - it can't be a 55lb bergan on top of webbing, weapon etc, can it? Averaging 4.35 mph for two hours with 55lb is not too bad if you've some ability, but still a test for many. A 55lb bergan and a load of stuff on top would surely bust half the intake, no?
