Got my green lid yesterday. King squad on Friday.

Been on this forum a few years . It's taken a few years to get to this point aswell . Failed prmc. Joined in 2017 left in week 11 . Rejoined . Got in hunter for 6 months . Even had to re run the endurance course after 30 miler . Had Every setback you can have. So any questions I'm sure I can give some advice on .

43 probably . It's pretty much where 70% of lads get for their first draft these days .

First of all congrats. I had a few of my old lads in your troop.

Going to 43 as a first draft is a rubbish ( Exactly what happened to me all those years ago).
The corps should be sending lads straight to units!!

Well done! slightly off topic but why are so many lads getting drafted to 43 at the moment?

Its high up on the priority list to be fully manned due to their role in protecting the Nations Nuclear assests.

Lead Commando and 43 usually take priority over the rest.

Congrats friend! Just a question about fitness what did you struggle on the most? If you could start again would you do anything different? Train different or anything!
Many thanks for your time and congratulations!
