recruiters course

heard recently that successful completion of said course brings with it automatic promotion to Lance corporal?
Any feedback appreciated.
Or does anyone have any information on courses that would qualify you for promotion?

Re: Answers please to settle argue with my ignorant pal

Thanks for that, so am I right in assuming, if you passed pcoy with 4 para in say 1990, they would actually have been 10 para? I'm trying to research the birth date of 4 para and everything to do with them. Do you mind me asking what year you did pcoy jumps etc?

1.5 mile Pfa time

Having not long since joined a Ta pioneer unit, I would like some solid info. I'm 46 yrs old, I would like to know what time I have to do 1.5 mile run. I gather it's age related. I have heard lots of different times, and had lots of smart comments, but no solid info. Cheers.

Answers please to settle argue with my ignorant pal

Ok, more questions to silence my ignorant mate. 1. When did pcoy move to catterick? 2. Previous to this, did 4 para do pcoy at aldershot? 3. What was 4 para's birth date? 4. What aircraft were used for jumps in those days at brize? I'm assuming it was brize. 5. Pcoy lasted 2 weeks? How long was jump...

Re: Let's settle an argument here

Thanks for settling that one for me, I will of course be smug when informing my friend.
We have lots of drink fuelled discussions, and many arguments arise, so with your permission I'd like to crack the little shit off on some more points?

Let's settle an argument here

Let's settle an argument here, when paying compliments to warrant officers? I have always braced up and addressed them as sir or ma'am, never saluted though. That has always done the job. My friend however insists warrant officers must be saluted? I'm fairly certain I'm right. Please put this other ...

Re: lost records?

Thanks, the issue has never been around me forgetting when I did pcoy or jumps. I know what year and month and number on jumps. Now, there is proof that I did pcoy but no evidence of jumps. You have to remember, its not me that is unsure of facts or numbers or dates. Far from it. I even remember som...
