the time has come!!, ATR Lichfield, Monday 14th January 2008


I found out my start date a while back but waited till it got nearer the time before i post on here

So i start basic on Monday 14th January, Royal Signals, Technical Supply Specialist
Is anybody else on this board going to be spending the next 14 weeks with me!!

I hope at least 1 person replys!

fingers crossed

I'm going to reply - but no I'm not spending the next 14 weeks with you. Good luck all the same bud!
just hope no nasty people leave bags that go 'pop' on the train station on that day now youve advertised the day the next intake is.

All the best though, enjoy the ride.
ben 1985 are you nevrous at all mate? also what job you want to do in the signals? im hoping to be a communications systems operator i passed scotland but i cant even manage one pull up. i never have been able to and it worrys me
im not really nervous at the moment fella, but will be probably after xmas passes by.

regarding pull up's im not great i can maybe do 4-6

what your press up's and 1.5 mile run time like?

im going in as a technical supply specialist

your run times ok mate dont worry about that, erm how many press-up's can you do in one go all together, mine is about 25, i really need to improve them, would have been better if you was starting 14th then in a way can speak to you before we go but suppose thats the way it is

lets enjoy our last month as a civvy (like someone said earlier on!)

You dont need to worry too much about the press ups gents, your going to be getting plenty of practice! Basic training is all about building you up. You obviously meet the requirements (unless youve become fat and wheezy since your recruit selection). Its not easy, but if you remember to take it one day at a time you'll breeze through it. Good luck.
on the letter i recieved today it said that in the first week they will assess that we are both mentally and physically fit enough to continue training. can anybody tell me what this involves? is it a case of straight in and a test?
From what I understand, there is no mental testing in the 1st week, thats already been done at ADSC and ACIO/AFCO

I beleive you are tested on the 1.5 mile run aswell as maybe press ups and sit up's,

i think you have to be real unfit not to start phase 1, real unfit and no motivation!!
