Did mine in June! It was rather emotional at times! Then did my NCO carde a few years later in June and it was wet as fcuk! Bloke got swept away in the stream! Ohh the joys of catterick training area!Skinn_Full said:It must be frustrating, missing out on Platoon attacks in Catterick, in the middle of July, being engaged from 400m away, especially when your the section grenadier, crawling the final 100m in the dead ground, blinded by a toxic mixture of sweat and cam cream, gathering into a nice soup in your chin-strap......then doing a casi-vac back to the start line.....those were the days!! hahahah!!!
That's the reason I was given yesterday. The instructors are instructing on Summer Challenge so can't be running a CIC as well.PartTimePongo said:
But is that the same number as are needed to run a CIC?FFBox said:So all the CIC DS are teaching all 7 weeks of various Summer Challenges?
They only sent a platoon staff, i.e. Capt, CSgt Sgt and a handful of Cpls to the SCs I've been on and only for two weeks at that.
