In light of the current thread about whether or not RR is dead, here's a quick post from a relative newbie. Passed out last Friday on what was, without getting too sentimental, the proudest day of my life. Pretty special for my family too. The 10 weeks just flew by. Loads of PT, drill,kit and bollockings! There really wasn't a dull moment and the days flew by. We all mucked in together and have made a load of new oppos. The only slightly annoying thing was having 4 weeks summer leave after week 7. Don't get me wrong it was great to get home but most of us would have preferred to carry on to week 10 as we were really into the swing of things by then. The pass out day itself was something I'll remember for a long time. According to my family it was really well organised and they were really well looked after. What happens now? I've joined as an AC along with 4 others. Apparently we're one of the first direct entry AC, hence the long wait to get in(+2 years) Kept back in Raleigh for a week. Then off to Collingwood for WS training until Xmas leave. In the new year off to Yeovil. 3 weeks of intense study and then an exam to decide whether we carry on as AC. So no pressure then! Anybody about to join up, the advice is simple, and I read it on here ages ago- Work hard, keep your head down and keep your gob shut!
