ScottC: I just finished my military swim test and fell in outside the front of the gym, and saw you lot passing out. Looked very good :)

Whats the usual age range of people at Raleigh. Are they mostly just out of school/college? I'm 23 now, and I can say I've gone through that phase of ******* about and making pranks on others. I can have a laugh as much as anyone else, but not at the expence of someone and if it's going to cause bad feelings. Hope I am not too out of place when I go there. I mean we were all young once and you only get one shot at it, but I hope I don't come across as the mature boring one lol. Oh well!

In my half of the class, so from 35ish, the ages ranged roughly as follows.

16-18 = 10
19-22 = 16
23-25 = 7
26-28 = 2

In the other half of the class thre was 3 aged 30-36, so you get a wide range.

Well the lad in question didn't divulge this until he had his medical stuff on week one. He said he couldn't really lie down straight and situps were almost impossible.....

I'm not sure how he expected to get anywhere knowing he couldn't do situps.

How badly does yours affect you?

You've got some big buggars in your class, so my body won't miss them. I'm sure it's a tradition you can pass on/beat on to your juniors in a few weeks :)

As for the back thing, he said it was very difficult for him to do any due to a curve in his lower spine. Yours sounds abit abnormal but if it doesn't impact on you in anyway i don't see why it should be a problem, especially since you ahev already divulged it to them.

yea i have to the bloke that did my medical he said it was ok but my curve is in my upperspine not my lower spine so maybe things will be different thanks for the help

Cannot understand why they let you join up one week before leave. Waste of time in my opinion. Whats this no uniform until Wednesday. No wonder it takes 9 weeks to turn you around.

God help us!!
