Polishing Parade boots for Blues

Im am in the RMR and just got my parade boots a couple of days ago. A few of the guys at my unit reckon I should be painting them as they need to be ready for armed forces day and with only a week they think I won't have enough time to get them polished properly. How many hours am I looking at to ge...

I had some smalll concerns about the smartie tubes before I did it on my phase 1 course with the reserves but they are easier than you may think. I'd heard rumours that you had to go through with your arms outstretched to the front and you had to wiggle through but that is complete bull. There are 2...

I thought you meant the ginger lad from my troop sorry. Yeah the guy you're talking about is supposed to be Feb 4th as well but he said he was going to try to change it to a later date.

I would go with the promotion if I were you as puting the RMR first would be a bit like letting a hobby get in the way of your work although I know it's not quite the same. I wanted to ask if you are sure that you couldn't still attend RMR Cambridge as parade is at 1930 and it can't be more than an ...

It seemed to be more of an induction weekend than a selection weekend because there were a couple of guys on mine that were definitely borderline anyway but they were allowed to start training. Get to the Thursday training sessions as often as you can once you start training because these bring your...

I didn't get a kitlist sent out by mistake so I only got it a day before the selection weekend. The biggest word of a...

Im currently at RMR Tyne so I'll probably be seeing you guys about the unit. I know holding troop started a couple of weeks ago. Could give you a quick run down of the weekend if you want. Going to work just now so don't have time at the moment I'm afraid.

I would not worry about what to wear to the test mate, it is just a test, I just wore fairly smart civvie clothing. Save your suit or shirt and tie for the interview where appearance counts for something.
