Just a quick question relating to beards at BRNC, apologies if it has been asked/answered elsewhere. I'm due to join BRNC next month and have just received the joining instructions. The information pack states that Officer Cadets can arrive at BRNC with a full beard but in a later section states that beards aren't allowed during the militarisation phase of training. Am i to take it that you can turn up at BRNC with a beard but would be required to immediately shave it off, or am i missing something? Anyone with recent experience of BRNC who can clear it up? Seems like a bit of a pointless query to bother the AFCO with.
