You should be looking at round about 70 for each. But at ADSC, you won't as such be assessed on how many press ups and sit ups you can do, because there are strength tests that you now have to complete. But ideally mate, you need to have that strength anyway; and just show abit of grit and determina...

How many interviews do you have before ADSC?

The question is pretty self explanitory; I was just wondering because I've heard from a few sources that you have two interviews before ADSC, and I didn't understand why.

Anyone care to explain?

Cheers, Woody. :lol:

I don't have any advice; but when you served, did you know David Barlow Wood? He was in the Grenadier Guards too.

When you lived in Germany, was you based in Munster - Oxford Barracks?

Reason I ask this is because he's my dad.
