I'm about to go on the final weekend of phase 1 with WMR, don't know much about A Company specifically but all I can tell you is that the A Company NCO's that have trained us are top blokes mate, even if they do have silly bog brush type things sticking out of their berets!
How many recruit weekends and other courses do you have to do in the WMR?
Already started on my fitness too, dunno what I'm aimin for though press-ups and sit-ups wise though. How many would i be expected to do when joining?
One thing I'm worried about is that I joined the regs when i left school hoping to go to AFC but got offered a place at ADC due to some paperwork fcuk up, so i dropped it to go back to college. Would they hold that against me if i joined?
there are 9 weekends followed by 2 weeks at Catterick, honestly don't know about your AFC/ADC issue, best thing either go down there and talk to the recruit team on a drill night (probably a Tuesday) or call them:
