For all of those who have finished selection and have a long waiting time u could join the reserves whlist you wait for entry full time. I have joined just asked Afco and they said yes been in for two months now there's quite a lot of people in waiting to go full time but serving in the reserves. This gives you a great head start before you go in full time with kit, drill, learning Ranks and who's who etc. Gives you a great insight and you get paid. You also once ready attend a two week course down Raleigh where you pass out. Weekends are good doing activties such as for example football fieldgun walking Dartmoor and loads of other things and you get paid for great. If you are up for it ask your Afco.
