As an old fart who attended Raleigh in 1963 from what I saw during the adverts for this program todays recruits have to be far fitter than ever we were. Well I did do mant 1/4 circuits of the parade ground with a Lee Enfield bouncing on my shoulder but I still reckon we had it easy:-D

My damaged finger was still in plaster cast when our class did the final PT exam, stood and watched the rest of the class being beasted by the PTI's and was given a pass so we could all pass out from part 2 together, so yes Slim some of us did have it easier. :brushteeth:

:sleepy2: If you had been a bit more skin and younger Slim, you would have spent a nice year on the parade ground at HMS ST Vincent, and have gone to HMS Fulmar far less Rotund.....and fitted into the cockpit of a Mk 1 Buccaneer of 809 squadron more easily :laughing2::laughing2:

As an even older 'fart',Victoria Barracks and Indefatigable 1951...I agree whole heartedly. I would never have made the fitness requirements that the kids today have to pass. Maybe because we weren't given little bottles of water to carry around with us.
