Hello, has anyone else been given this date?
Yes I have, still awaiting medical face to face and security clearance though so fingers crossed!
@Dutch88 have you done your vpjft already ? And do you have any idea of when the face 2 face medicals will commence?
I’m on this one! Good luck to all of us
Have any of you been given a kit list yet?
Yup. I did the vpjft a few weeks ago.
No idea about medicals though.
I see 89 in your user name. Does that mean you're 31?
Im 32. Would be nice knowing I'm not the only oldy in the troop.
Though I'll probably be the eldest. Ha
Nah not yet, my CA said he’d be in touch as well send out joining instructions closer to the date.
haha yes, us over thirties must rally together!
My question is has anyone done his vpjft before face 2 face medicals or do we have to get the face 2 face done before we can book for the vpjft
VPJFT can be done after triage, as for Face 2 Face medicals they have resumed but in limited numbers and are being allocated across the RN / RM in priority basis and while RM are in the top ten list they are not number one on the list, there is also a lack of some kit so applicant s may be asked to do a peak flow diary for 1 week.!!
So bear with it guys your AFCO will get you moving as soon as they can!!
I’m on this date
