My son set off on the train from Newcastle early this morning for Phase 1 day 1 at Pirbright. My wife, youngest son and I saw him off. A proud day for us.
Good luck to all those starting basic training.
Good luck to him. If he ever thinks of jacking it in because the going gets tough. Show him some tough love, tell him to knuckle down and get on with it. My folks did with me and now I thank god that I had the sense to listen to them.
Good luck to TWs son. My Son entered Catterick just under a year ago and there were many times when he said he was thinking of pulling out, but now 12 months down the line and he is with 4 Rifles at Bulford and really enjoying the life. Go for it Mr Brown and I wish you all the very best mate
Good luck to him,he will be a lot different when he comes on leave and have the washing machine ready with a full box of dhobi dust ready for all his kit.The best years of his life are just around the corner.
Work hard, then work harder ... and when it's still not enough, do some more.
Regardless of Regt, Corps or Service, you are entering a noble profession of men & women [not boys & girls].
If it was that easy to get in, and get through Basic, and all the rest that comes later, the British Forces would not be the OUTSTANDING bunch of professionals they are, and always have been, and will continue to be.
