Hi ipodbob.I left recruit training after week 8 because my girlfriend was 4 months pregnant,so i had to make the toughest choice in my life so far,either continue training or stop and come home,and i chose the latter option.I was absolutely gutted.All that hard work and months of tests down the pan!!But i new i would eventually come back into training again,and have just got to pass prmc again in the next month or so,which will not be easy as i remember the last one and am not as fit as the last time i passed it.But i have a month to beast myself into shape.

Andy5sm thank you very much for that information.much appreciated.

i think thats right in the middle of when your doing your tour, i read that in the army help guide that someone went on holiday because you get 2 weeks off right in the middle of the 6 months
