  3. Im affraid everyone has to wait to get into training now mate. Thers not much you can do but just wait till a date comes through and keep your self fit, if its what you realy want then you will wait it out nad youl be in soon ! just keep on phoning your recruiter every few weeks and ask for an update. Even the infantry has a waiting list !
  4. I thought army chef was a fast track job? i dunno

    Mate of mine (TA) came off tour in early 2008, applied to go reg about 6-12 months later. Is still waiting for a joining date...
  6. What happens on the 1st of March?
  7. 1st of March is an intake date at Pirbright. Chef's usually is quite quick but you got a grade c, so expect to wait longer whilst all those better than you i.e grades A + B get their dates first.
  8. 1st time I joined the Army: 1 year from applying to starting.
    2nd time(this time): 1 year 1 month, still waiting. However also note I'm changing trade choice so naturally expecting a bit of wait from that lone as old corps confirms with new one, still hoping it's going to be good news when news comes...
