Re: IOT breakdown

Yes.
PM me your email address and when I go into work on Monday I'll try and remember to send you something…
Bear in mind you won't get asked to outline every single week, a general overview and knowing the names of the exercises is ok.
What are you applying for?

Re: would love to chat about whatever, laughter guaranteed

The original poster has hopefully gone to a website where she can find someone sensible to talk to… (No wonder there's a serious lack of female members on this site these days) I'm perfectly calm, takes a lot more than this to wind me up. :wink: Feel free to keep trying though if you don't have anyt...

Re: would love to chat about whatever, laughter guaranteed

Well I guess I'll pass that on to TDF then, as they're still advertising it as E&D. In any case, I'm still in date for another 12 months, and it doesn't matter what it's called, it still means the same thing. As you are so obviously expert on it then you know that what you said was beyond the line, ...

Yes.

Sorry for the blunt response, but it will. I had a friend who got medically discharged for occasional blackouts.

Not in the RAF it isn't. :wink:
That may have been your idea of banter but it wasn't particularly witty. You can't say that sort of thing to women you don't know. Especially civvies.

Re: would love to chat about whatever, laughter guaranteed

Really Firstmate?
You're clearly out of date on E&D training…
:roll:

Nobalie, I apologise for the crudeness. However, you might want to try www.forcespenpals.co.uk if you would like to actually correspond with military types, you'll get more sensible replies over there.

Re: Music and the Armed Forces Project

I find music very emotive - the Last Post, the Air Force March and Nimrod (Elgar's Enigma Variations) are guaranteed to make my lip wobble every time I hear them, because of associations they have in my mind or memory.
My brother is a military bandsman, have you considered talking to any of those?

Re: Hello

Don't worry - I guess most military types on seeing the word bootcamp are going to think of running about in a field with tyres etc! We forget there are other kinds! :D

Re: Basic Training FEMALES..

I'm in the RAF, joined up in 2004. We had mixed intakes, but separate blocks, so I guess we were quite lucky there were only 12 of us! I'm going to be going through it all over again in Officer training next year though - it's going to be much harder second time round! I'd never give anyone a blasti...

Re: Basic Training FEMALES..

I can only tell you what it was like for me 9 years ago... 1. how long do women get to use the shower for? Depends - after PT approximately 3 minutes. And there were only about 4 shower heads and 12 of us that needed to get through, so you have to kind of leave the inhibitions at the door. You'll be...
