They don't know how lucky they are! That was a stinking ex.
Agreed! We done ours on the Common, just down from the MEG range. If you dug down 4ft you were stood in 2ft of water! A honking exercise made worse by it being an NCB ex and the TT shoving CS gas in your face throughout the dark hours. Added to that it was in December and made for a miserable few days.

Nothing like getting back on a Saturday and going straight into a bottom field session. Praying for traffic on the motorway haha.

An update for this thread courtesy of a forum user.

Attached as a PDF is a scan of the Recruit Training schedule which was issued to PRMC candidates in October 2018.

The schedule is for guidance only. Particular elements might be swapped around to make the training programme fit with available resources. Please take a look through other posts in this thread which may have details of specific changes.

Also RT evolves. Contrary to what is in the PDF please note:

Final Ex is now Week 29.
Commando Tests start on the Saturday immediately after Final Ex.
Check this thread for other edits as they arise.

Most importantly, this guide should not be used to plan weekend leave, etc.
Thanks

I’ve been reading some old training diaries from previous troops which have been great but they seem to have stopped. Anyone know if they are going to be published again?

@sharpe My son's troop (276) diary was available on line until (about) week 20 I think but it has now disappeared completely. He told us at around week 26 that he had just written one to be posted online but it has never appeared. :(

Shame as the troop diaries are a brilliant way of seeing what they've done and what is coming up.

Our Tp Cmdr still had one nod get voluntold to do one each week, and that was late 2018 in 26x numbers
Possibly they now have individual troop urls, known only to the NoK of each troop due to persec?

The Tp Cmdr screened them all to check for persec issues, and generally, they were censored to avoid the worst of the drips; not sure what persec issues could come from "its cold, we got extra phys because we didn't do a proper kit muster, its always wet" etc
