No families allowed in due to the rule of six, but after pass out the KS were allowed out to meet their families and have happy snaps taken.Also to note, it looks like all the pictures are taken outside of CTCRM so I'm guessing the family either had to wait outside for all the pass out parade or maybe until they could be close enough without breaking guidelines.
I'm curious to know what his first unit will be though, cracking effort and looks like he has a very supportive family behind him.
Yeah, a double parade with both 291 and 292 troop. It made the left turn at flag A interesting. Got it cracked thoughA good parade with around 50. Mine was slightly smaller at 11! We didn't even make three ranks, but still had the full band and the sense of pride was just as great!
i was going to ask about this as i am still planning to come down for pass out, even if not allowed in base. As my son can't come hime for christmas it will be last opportunity to see him before he goes to his unit.No families allowed in due to the rule of six, but after pass out the KS were allowed out to meet their families and have happy snaps taken.
CTC have stopped allowing families in to the base for KSPO due to the current restrictions. There has been one passout where they were allowed in in groups of two family members, but that was before the current rules came in. There is nothing to stop you coming to the camp and waiting outside as the guys have been allowed to come to the gates after the parade and see their families and have photographs. I also believe that some shore leave has been allowed up until 22.00 to allow them to celebrate.i was going to ask about this as i am still planning to come down for pass out, even if not allowed in base.

May i ask....how long do they get to spend with families and after the day is wrapped up when are they free for leave and how long?
i have seen members of the public clap them along their 30 miler, in general do many family members do this? And can the public witness them getting to the finish line and getting their green beret? no mire questios I just need to plan, which is near on impossible when his pass out date could be hampered with injury (not going to say failing tests!) Being positive!
They normally get a weekend's leave after KS. On return most start their driver training at CTC, depending what, if any, licences they hold. Afterwards they sometimes go to the main driver training centre for more specialist vehicles at Leconfield, Yorkshire. They are also used at CTC to provide enemy for recruits and other courses.@Caversham & @Cheledon thank you re the 30 miler info, good to know. it's hard to plan anything as you say with covid, added in with the unknown of passing as an original and added timeframes.
So after KSPO when do they leave the base permanently for their new units? and will their be some leave between the two?
thanks for your info.
