A'reet folks, Some of you asked for an update and just got internet access so here be it, all going well, unfortunately stuck in a messdeck with ChicoJizz, the lad who is weirder in real life than he is on here (hard to believe I know, but it's true)... Instructors have been keeping us very busy, long days, hard work, shitloads of kit maintenance and little sleep but having a good laugh and starboard class is beating the port class at everything so far, naturally.. our DI is a good'un, and also met Instructor drakdi. Got back from Pier Cellars yesterday, went on a hike, had a bbq and did our sod's opera that was pretty much just taking the piss out of the DI's and PT staff, with some assault course / swimming about in a freezing harbour in our ovies and boots thrown in, our class won the ganges points for the fastest time of course... also visited a sub earlier this week, glad I'm going wafu now, god knows why anyone would want to be stuck in a dingey tuna tin sleeping on a torpedo for months on end.. Going into week 4 when SA80 training starts and am really looking forward to that... Loving the drill instruction, PT classes, Powerpoint presentations can feck off and so can potatoes, fed up of those already.. the time is going really quickly, week one dragged a bit, just paperwork etc, and looking forward to being able to go home for a couple weeks in the easter break... have passed the fitness, swimming and drill tests / exams, kit musters are going ok, few weak points but getting there slowly.. messdeck stinks of farts and takes a few minutes in the morning for the green fog to clear, should have been supplied with gasmasks. Anyway I'll stop rambling there.. a few from our class will be PVR'ing but I won't be one of them.. loving it. All't best.
