    The dates are filling up quicker than I though if they're already full until September. If I manage a pass hopefully I'll be starting around the same time.

    It's something in itself just to pass mate, you've shown your fit enough to begin training so I wouldn't even worry what grade they gave you, go and smash training now.

    Gotcha, atleast you'll have some time with the little one before training then.

    Just taking all the information I can so there's no surprises, so any tips at all from you and @Shadow Frog is appreciated, anyone that's done PRAC for that matter.

    Buy compeed foot rub stick. Dont buy own socks. Get boxers that dont stick up rear end and dont rub. For test its battle honours vc winners start date of corps you cant go wrong. You dont need to know at this stage every ounce of detail of them. I learnt 3 vc winners full story for prac.
    Tie your laces triple knott for 4 miler i would have enjoyed that i double knotted mine and it still came undone. Timpsons the shoe shop do a deal for midtan polish and boot brushes if you say its for army

    Might sound obvious but a guy wore vans...yes flat skateboard vans running shoes he failed. Dont take air max or anything like that just pure running shoes have you watched para platoon episode 1?

    Quality tips mate cheers, all taken on board.

    I've been trying to find the series for ages but can't find it anywhere, apparently a really good watch though.

    Good man. Get a good grip on the basics of regimental history too, particularly battle honours. Rather like dhobi skills, such knowledge can result in (a bit) more sleep. :)

    You can pick up a used pair of combats and a shirt/smock from plenty of websites! Make sure they are current issue!! Wash them iron them! Make sure you iron the pockets, and the creases are like sharp enough to shave with. Practice rolling the sleeves up on the shirt. 4 fingers wide! Roll iron, roll iron all the way up.

    When you've cracked it! Keep them in the house during RT, and when you get to unit, bang them into the QMs for a nice new set! Happy days you now got a buckshee set of PCS.
