Just wondered what those in the know think of today's Soldiers to Be. My first hand experience was in 1999 when I did my training at Pirbright where had a crow kept being a p*ssy and kept getting his mum to ring up the Platoon.Sgt up trying to give him a b*llocking. I've heard training has been toned down less beastings!?and more encouragement and while talking to a lad going for RSC he told me they done away with the 14kg Box lift and pull ups. Are lads that are arriving at Battalion any good or not seems like the Army is getting too easy. I also heard that they are set aside time in the day to sort kit out instead of doing the ol 1am ironing thing.
