Well looks like I didn't need to produce my Discharge Papers.
We did ALL the paper work in one day, minus the medical papers, so I'm keeping on top of my doctor making sure he gets in done, and sent off! lol

Should be squared away then and get onto ADSC and strut my stuff again, as it were. :lol:

Does everyone think I will need to do PRAC, as I've heard recruits now have to do this aswell too; even though I was a good joe and didn't leave THAT long ago?

GPW is a re enlister and he didn't have to do PRAC so I guess it'll be the same deal with you, not sure though.

I was under the impression ALL adult entry had to do PRAC in order to weed out the shite and so the fittest chaps can progress onto depot para.

What you trying to say mucker...?? :lol: :lol:

Can see what your saying, and I would have liked to go up there for a crack at it, but it's nothing I haven't done before, and I know how hard the steeple chase, log race, 1.5 mile route and press up / sit up test is. And if I go un-prepared, then it's down to me and they will just back-squad me straight away.

Think alot of the PRAC course is to get blokes aware of what they are doing. I honestly shit myself for the first few days and would have happily walked given the chance. Some bloke wanted out after a couple of hours, others a couple of days. Think thats what they are trying to avoid too!

I've got reports from my old section commander and platoon commander speaking volumes of my fitness and my ability to keep smashing through it all.

They either called me Forest Gump, Borg or the Fit Mong :lol:

Either way, I don't mind doing PRAC.
But I'd rather not, because I just want to get back into Depot, civvi street is driving me MAD!

Yeah I've been speaking to GPW, difference is he's got a 1 Para recruiter and I'm stuck with PWRR Recruiters in Canterbury.....JUST MY LUCK! LOL

Any other lads in the process of getting back in, or joining Paras too?

AHAHA In my platoon mucka, we had one guy who re-fused to step on the coach at Darlington! LOL
But that coach drive to Catterick Garrison, and then we stopped outside Burton Block, I was like "LET THE FUN BEGIN :D "

What a waste of time he was!! :D

Think that is why PRAC is a good idea really, 'should' stop things like that, ADSCis nothing compared to Depot!

It wasn't a dig chap, I just thought the crack was that all adult entry had to pass PRAC and all junior entry were ok, being they have 42 weeks at the AFC to get a grip, where as the adult entry have 21 weeks.

Why did you leave in the first place mate?

I know mate, no worries.

Got medically discharged last time, but it's all good now, round 2! :D

See what your saying, but who am I to argue, 1 Para Colour Sergeant says I don't have to, so am happy with that! :lol:
