    Was just emailed an invite to attend a Potential Officers Visit with 40 Commando in Taunton in the 2nd week of December, anybody else received similar?

    110% going to be going to this!

    I haven't heard anything as of yet, but would really be up for this! I might email my AFCO to see if there's an opportunity for me to join in as well. Just wondering, have you had your SIFT interview yet?

    Ah nice, congratulations on passing. I passed mine Monday so we might end up on the same POC...

    Congrats mate, it's a bit of a relief isn't it? Looking forward to getting truly stuck in with POC & AIB! Yeah we might well be, I'm expecting a Jan date at this point!

    Oh yeah, definitely is! Same here, how's your training going so far? That's what I imagine too, least it gives plenty of preparation time - rather have too much time than too little.

    Yeah absolutely, I think the POV will be a good eye-opener about where my fitness is at and what more I need to work on. Training is going well, getting more and more motivated now that the goal is getting ever closer. The hardest thing I find is not having a training partner to be honest.

    It certainly would be, I've emailed my AFCO to see if I can get involved with the visit. I know what you mean, especially as it gets colder, training on your own isn't always fun... But it'll be worth it in the end!

    I had an email nominating me for it about a week ago, apparently getting confirmation mid November! Be good to bump heads with you all lads!
