Before PRMC there was the PRC (Pre Recruit Course), before that nothing! When I joined it was the recruit test, interview and medical, all done within a short space of time and within weeks you were on your way to The Depot, Deal.What was the reasoning for introducing prmc? I can see why it's there but was there anything that kicked off the decision to add it?
The only decent kit was our rifle, which was the SLR and the GPMG, all the rest was gash. No Gortex, no sleeping bags, no Jet Boils etc etc.
Ref sleeping bags, what did you use for kip/sustainment in the field? How about Norway trips? Take it you used hexi to cook with?
I no idea that Royal was issued with the Armalite?
Did most people have a preference between the m16 and slr?
