  3. Well, thank you kindly for pointing out my bad points, I hope my wit and humour wins one over ... ha ha ha sod tha, heheheheh I know I can't spell, and my grammar is pants, but thank you for that polar.... xx
  4. I think its weapon handling, CBRN, Nav., PFT and BCD
  5. think weekend 6 is Gas chamber time :D Dont quote me just trying to remember what week the other guys from my unit were on at the weekend :)
  6. Think its called a Respirator Testing Chamber?
  7. W/e 6 for OA&S consists of formative testing on CBRN, BCD and Nav a WHT as well as Confidence in kit/respirator in the CTF/RTF/whatever its called this week, as well as normal lessons, your testing should take place on the Sunday.

    Good to hear you are still enjoying it.
  8. Mate dont be worried at all.
    Saturday is basically a doss around do feck all, except for last thing when you go and have a play with CS gas :)
    Sunday tests are:

    Map reading - If you fail, you get the answers and redo it
    CBRN test - Same as above
    BCD - 3 quarter prone position and the ability to read the aide memouir is all thats needed
    Weapons handling test - Strip it down, answer questions on what you would do to the weapon in hot/sandy/wet/artic etc conditions, re assemble, function test, mag filling in under 75 seconds and stopage drills.

    Jobs a good un :)
  9. Karl what RTC did you attend? because they are failing the SUT if they give the answers!

    As to BCD it's a little more than reading the memoire and 3/4 prone, the application of a FFD etc,
    They are formative tests to see if you are capable of going onto the next stage. If you are not then they are just setting you up to fail the next phase.
  10. i know it the weapon handling an drills, nsps an function test,

    Hhhmmm well i think i will be the judge of that.

    Joke joke. Don't panick and stay calm it will all be fine. You have been taught all you need to know, and you have the hand out to refer to in the meantime. :D
