Well my joining date for BRNC is fast approaching, Just wondering what i should expect to spend my first 48hrs at BRNC doing?
 
From dim and very distant memories, extreme culture shock, hard physical work, insane CPOs, all I can suggest is to 'go with the flow' if they say jump, you jump. After a bit it will calm down and you may even see some sense in it all.

Getting shouted at for no apparent reason
Hear the "there's bromide in the orange squash" story for the first time
More shouting
Learn not to call a MAA "Sir"
Meet you intake mates repeating the refrain "What's your name, where d'you come from, what spec are you"
More shouting
Learn that it is possible to tick-tock
Wonder why the hell you signed that contract...

Wondering what the hell you got yourself into.

Then being so busy and tired you don't have time to wonder that anymore.
 
ml2sjw, how long did you have to wait between passing your medical and finding out if you were successful in getting a place at BRNC?

Its just I passed my medical yesterday, now I've got to wait.

Good point, I've just got this perpetual image of the Joss, on the parade ground at Dartmouth, in No1s, just after I'd called him Chief.

Learned remarkably quickly
 
Do you still have to bull your parade boots (i.e. polish till they gleam like mirrors) and use the back of a warm spoon to smooth out all the little dimples? You rub in tiny circles using a dab of polish on a damp duster and have to have the right type of spit - some people's is too acidic. It takes ages to do but it's a skill learned for life.

In the day's of cadets, we had one who passed out at Passing Out. We all groaned inwardly as he was dragged away with a person under each arm and his highly polished toe caps trailing across the parade ground - all that work gone to waste. Turned out he'd broken his jaw in three places but that's what comes from fainting to attention. It's the only acceptable way to do it!

The Surgeon Commander told me straight away that I was passed as fit for Warfare, it may take longer for Aircrew. There is more to go over I think.

But the best thing about the whole Medical process was sitting around for ages in those bloody short green Dressing Gowns!

From then on OCs were instructed to go down on one knee if they felt faint - and explicitly not to faint at attention!

That instruction was in place seventeen years ago.
