That unit has recently come back from an exercise in Italy as far as I'm aware, I think thats where that Huey footage was from as there was an article in the local papers a couple of months ago showing them over there in a Huey.
If your ex reg.....it seems to take forever, if not and you have no previous experience of milatary life your through in a breeze!! Thats my own personal view and that of one of the blokes who i was in with who is now recruiting people at the careers office.
Bearing in mind I'm only taking a snapshot at one ADSC, we average 8 during the week and this weekend we've got 38 penciled in yes not the hordes expected but still not at a standstill.
As to the time it takes between ex regs and new starts I can't comment as its not my field The_Iron may be able to answer that although i did mention it to the SO1 grown up the other day and recruiting group are aware......
