I've just had the Recruit Test and now have the date of my medical, but I was just wondering at what point you think I should start swimming lessons? I am water confident, but haven't attempted swimming since secondary school so do plan on taking some lessons. My advisor knows this and just said that I'd need to be able to do the basic swimming test, but obviously these swimming lessons cost so don't want to start until I'm close to getting in? Should that be after my medical, now or after the PJFT? I've had people laugh at me wanting to join the RN as a non-swimmer but even if I wanted to join the army and go to Afghanistan I got told that I'd still have to do the basic swimming test so might as well join a service that I think I'd actually enjoy being in!
