    If you were the lad with the horrendous ponytail and beard, I don't care how good your scores were, you need to meet the business end of a lawn mower.

    I’d never have the balls to rock up with a beard and ponytail!! Plus I thought you had to shave as part of PRMC?

    I can confirm that I was NOT the one with a ponytail I was one of the many lads with short hair and a shaven face ;)

    Could have been the look at life course. You're all off the hook.

    I sent a guy on PRMC with a mahoosive afro many moons ago.

    I got the obligatory call from CTC; "WTF?"

    Two schools of thought on that one:

    a) The individual should maybe visually indicate they want the job rather than give rise to question motivation.

    Or

    b) He hasn't joined yet and can have pink hair if he wants.

    To be fair, the lad did ask beforehand and I said "Crack on".

    He passed. Joined & passed out successfully.

    Unrelated, but I've met the business end of a lawn mower, and I would not recommend you do it.
    It hurts.. a lot:D

    Yep! A great example of somebody training to meet maximums. Not minimums.

    Now a tip for you, that I don't readily dish out. You need to maintain those scores, but do not improve upon them. You're in the rare position that you will peak too early in training if you arrive much fitter than you already are. Not many lads have that luxury.

    What do you mean peak to early? Won’t it make training much easier if you was to go beyond the maximum scores?
