best wishes to them bothI managed to speak to my saffa mate in Castel over the weekend, he knows of a scot in another company that is probably Guido, my mate is doing his Raid next week. So highly likely middle of March they'll know their place and where they're going. End of the month its off to Regiment I'd say.
REP fever?? My recollection was it was the bench mark regarding regiments also if I remember right it was quite evident that a lot were not going to make it or the grade but for the likes of myself ( it was the REP or nothing) so even getting jailed twice in basic training it came as a shock that I still made it and was given the choice to volunteer once again to fly!I'd say that our man Guido should be winding up his basic training by now. Probably got the raid march to go and then the week of tests followed by orientation (where they start to ask which regiment you would like etc).
At this time in Basic training, it gets a LOT less stressful. You know what is expected of you, you understand the orders and you are communicating with those who do not speak your lingo in French.
REP fever has died down for all but the die hards and everyone is wondering what it will be like in their new regiment. He'll be spending his first Camerone in his regiment.
