Foundation block was pretty crap, but its only for 2 weeks, so crack that and the block feels like a hotel. PT is quite hard if you put the effort in, but its only once a day (unless you have swimming too). Just started weapons training whichis pretty cool, and drill is pretty straight forward. The hardest thing to do in training is not falling asleep in lectures. I keep myself awke by watching people struggling to stay awake. Its hilarious.

Just remembered something that had me laughing for ages.

We've got 3 backtroopers who failed their NAMET's, and they said theres a nutter in there old troop (897). One of the lads was talking to him on Friday and he told him that hes got to go and see the troop commander becuase while on parade the DL asked the troop if anyone had a problem. The lad put his hand up and said ''You're a tool Corporal''

You only have to take NAMET if you don't have GCSEs in Maths and English.

Braywick, they're a good team, one Cpl is a proper evil two faced to**er, the only one everybody disliked. He can be a good laugh at times but is a proper evil barsteward the other half. He's the one with a dog and a tendency to bounce on his feet saying, "Awright men," constantly. But you'll probably hate them all for the first few weeks at least anyhow :wink: The Dutch stripey's hilarious tho, if a littly mentally disturbed...you'll see what I mean :lol:
