15 weeks in and I’ve gone full circle information wise. 1st few weeks wanted to know everything, now too scared to ask:)
Yep, totally get you on that score.

Sometimes it's best not to get too philosophical. Stoicism is the better path to tread. :)

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.

I remember that Ex well! The water table on the Common is really high as Nigel Mansell found out when he bought a golf course up there and had hopes of turning it into a championship venue. He found that it is closed more times than it's open and has a ban on buggys for most of the year. He later sold it and moved to Jersey!

Can you tell me what equates to a long weekend
Son on week 3
Normally get leave Friday morning or after last detail, then return to camp Sunday evening. However long weekends apart from families day are subject to troop performance and schedule. A troop lose them at a drop of a hat, the same applies for a normal weekend

For the families of those about to enter into recruit training and those already in recruit training there's an excellent week-by-week series of video clips on the RN website which gives an insight of the each of the full 32 weeks training at the Commando Training Centre. Bear in mind, certain elements of training maybe adjusted from time to time, but coupled with the programme below, it gives a good insight: http://webarchive.nationalarchives....M-Commando-Training-Phase-1-CTCRM?week=week-1

Weekends off highlighted in blue.

There isn't yet a summary of ROP content in the public domain. ROP is very much a 'work in progress' and will undoubtedly evolve. It will be interesting to note if the content of RT changes to take into account the selection and induction phase of ROP.
