Alright arrsers Apologies for not updating on my progress, been pretty busy. In week 17 now and just got back on christmas leave. Found it alot harder than i thaught i would, i always thaught my drama would be with fitness but its personal admin im struggling with, never been in any serious shite for it though. Been infront of my div capt once like but that was for underage drinking. Main reason im posting is because i deploy on tac-ex 3 the night i get back off leave (Yeah, while the platoon is still full of booze and mince pies) and its a trench digging exercise, where we dig trenches non-stop for between 32 and 48 hours and i was wondering if anyone could provide me with any advice for it. Were also allowed to wear our own kit this exercise, so any recomondations for boots, warm kit, gas burners etc with considerations on a recruits wage would be much appreciated aswell. Thankyou, Bradders.
