What happens when I pass out?

I start training for the Scots Guards on the 19th of Feb, and should all go well I should pass out by the end of September. I know that the Scots are going on tour in October, so I was wondering what I would do when I pass out. Normally, Guardsmen go to their ceremonial companies post-Catterick, but with there being a tour coming up would I be posted straight to battalion?

Any insight would be appreciated, Jake.

I doubt it as you would have missed the PDT.

You'll more likely be put on a driving course for your civvy licence, then leave, then Ceremonial bullshit, then 2 weeks in Bas for a quick suntan, then back home, then maybe join Bn as a BCR ....not neccessarily in that order but close to it.

....or none of the above.


Either way, suck it up and stagg on.

I've often wondered the same, as whenever I come to, I'm usually missing at least one eyebrow, various items of clothing, and/or my mobile/wallet etc. and often seem to be wearing comedy drawn on spectacles.

Buckfast and schnapps is a dangerous combination.....




In your case though, I reckon NS123 has probably got it about right. Best of luck whatever happens.

Not 100% in the know as to the linguo yet, what does BCR mean?

It means Belize Cidney Redux. That is Spanish for waking up in a bath of iced water in Belize with a pain in your gut and a sign pasted onto the wall saying "Call 911. We just stole your kidney Gringo".

Be careful where you pass out.

It depends, it's most likely that you'll go to F Coy to do some ceremonial, however all the Scots Guards from my Plt went straight to Germany after Catterick as our Plt Sgt was Scots Guards and pulled a few strings.

Will you get to go on tour? Again this will depend, if you are lucky enough to go straight to Bn then there's a good chance you will deploy, or go on rear party but with the possibility of being used as a casualty replacement. If you go to F Coy then you MAY get to deploy as a casualty replacement, but you would be quite far down the list.

My advice is to wait till you've completed training and passed out before you worry about getting on tour.
