Righty all, with 112 days left to go (WOOOO F'KING HOOOOO!!! YES!!! URMPH!!!!!) sorry.

112 days left to go, thought it was my turn to start one of these things everyone loves so much :)

So, anyone starting at Winchester on Jan 21 2008? If so what are you going into?

cheers. if i see you in some in one oh the desert countrys in the future I will get you a pint :)
Yeah reet, coz Basra is flooded with f@ckin Guiness and Stella... :lol:

You got more chance of getting a blow job off Ester Ranzen than getting a pint in Iraq or Afgan, but its the thought that counts :lol:

I applied back in March but my medical papers took ages!
I only went to selection a couple of weeks ago though , so the wait isnt too bad. I was prepared to wait longer due to the minimal RMP places available.

Have you been waiting a long time?

Coming from Blackpool. Which is fan-f'king-tastic, the coming FROM it as opposed to going TO it ;)

Ruddyhell, I applied in Feb of this year, passed ADSC May 8th.... still, only 111 days to go eh :thumright:

Does anyone know why the whole process takes so long? I applied over a Month ago and still haven't heard anything back not even from my Local Army Careers Office! Should I be expecting a letter with an interview date and time or is it best to just go in to their Office this weekend? I'm getting impatient as I want to get on with it! lol Any advice as to normal procedures would be greatly appreciated

lol IF I get to basic on january 21st, It will have taken around 12months to get me in...

Just keep pestering them, thats what I did, constant phone calls to ask whats happening and what Im waiting for now etc...

Medical takes f'ing ages to get done properly. If they haven't contacted you for a while just drop by and ask if you need to do anything or just have chat with your Sgt about the jobs your interested in. I'm meant to be at ADSC around 5th Dec, but havent got a confirmed date yet, hoping to get started before x-mas or early 2008 if not. ATR Winchester for this AAC recruit!

I started my application in March too, medical took months of phone calls to my docs before it turned up at my AFIO, then it took a few more weeks to get back from pirbright with an OK. Use the time to train cos I've only got a few weeks till my ADSC and if I'd only just started training I'd be screwed on the day. Good luck.
