Through fault of my own, there is no chance i'll make it into this years RT. Would you guys say it would be a good idea to apply now and attend a presentation before they stop, and then go for 117 troop?
117 troop start training in March. What point are you at in your application? I know there is a PRMCR in early March, but if you're not ready for that you'll likely be waiting until next year. Make contact with the unit and have a chat though.
If you send them a email, explaining you’re interested in joining and ask about upcoming recruitment events or insight nights at Plymouth. They may say come down on x night and have a look around or just give you the relevant info.
