    Is there anywhere on here where you can get familiar with with stuff you learn in training such as weapon handling drills revision etc please?

    In short no, with the exception of map reading. You will be taught all weapon training under strict supervision, the same with map reading, but a head start on the basics will see you right.

    Use the search function on here and you should find the links.

    Good luck

    I know that this will sound as dull as ditchwater but along with map reading, as mentioned above, arguably the best head start you can give yourself is to become familiar with dhobi.
    Dhobi is the service term for laundry and ironing. Anyone with a good grasp of the basics will benefit massively in the early stages of RT. Seriously.
