    I'll see if I can get an updated matrix with troop key dates but to be honest, as soon as he knows which troop he is joining they will tell him the projected pass out date. Until Final Ex is complete it's probably best not to go firm on any plans and even then, gawd forbid, things can change.

    Pass out parades tend to be every two weeks. It's not an exact science, as leave has to be factored in, but once your lad knows what Troop he will be in then you will know what date his KS pass out will be.

    Last pass-out before Summer leave is 235 troop on August 4th if that's any help, the next troop after that are 7 weeks behind (237).

    229 is the 19th. There was an extra week added cause of leave. So 230pass out on the 26th.

    But surely every troop had leave? How can they add a week on to one troop but not the rest?

    I've never seen two consecutive weeks with a passout before but I'm not going to argue with some one who knows better than a forgetful old bird with a spreadsheet! Ha Ha!

    It's cause those in the ivory tower decided that 339 would benefit more from an extra "buffer week" to keep phys levels up as if it was not there they would be strait into final ex then tests. 230 did the 6 mile speed march and have got their cap comforters before leave too, for the same reason. So yeh as you say it's rare for one king squad to be right after the other. 230 will deploy on final ex a day before 229 Finnish final ex.
