Had a hectic 2 weeks, so what have I missed? How's my tanking protége (spelling?) doing? whats cloudy moved on to complaining about? :lol:

Having a blast so far with my training, not goner lie I'm finding it hard though. Being pushed harder and for longer then ever before particularly on PT, I was literally dripping with sweat to day doing circuits in the gym could see it splashing on the equipment and on the mats. And the endurance runs leave me aching the next day. They are basically 4 mile runs and a certain points there are steep hills you have to run up. First hill is atleast 1in 3, ever seen those signs saying 33% on steep roads. Cars struggle on them and we have to run up it a few times having already run there then go on the next hill :( and the next and so on and then run back to base. Feel good though once you get back and you realise how hard you pushed your self

Been issued my L85 rifle :D can strip it, clean it, assemble it, peform function tests, safety checks, load, unload but have to wait a little longer to fire her :(

Will try to post more when i can but that'll be evenings and weekends only so if I don't post i haven't forgotten.its just I have to little time :(

What a week I've had. Back from long weekend straight into a 4 mile tab :(. Tuesday we deployed on a 4 day exercise. First day was getting there and digging in. Tabbed a couple of miles from the drop off point then in the morning tabbed out to were the field lessons were only to find out our harbour area had been set up about 300 meters away from the drop off :Lol:

Poured down at night :( next was tests on field craft stuff, fail those n you get back squadded I naturally passed them all :D. The afternoon and evening was all fire control orders :D Lots of fire and manoeuvre using fireteam and section tactics. At night we did a stealthy exercise were we bad to get from one point to as close to the platoon commander and sergeant as we could. They were on a hill using night vision scopes. I got to within 50 meters then ran out of time but didn't get caught. Then the platoon numpty (we call him something I can't say here) was missing. All the Staff were out looking over the area for him for ages. Turns out he had decided he would rather sleep than take part so he got one hell of a shouting at. The sgt's hilux then got stuck so we had to dig it out. Lucky for our section we got back so late we were taken off our punishment of fireteam stag which is eboth of the fire teams of the section rotating on off stag.

Will finish this post later :p

Day four was fire and manoeuvre tests but before all that the training team launched an attack against our platoon harbour. I'd been on stag from 0130 to 0230 got back to my shell scrape then whilst it was still ***** down had to get my waterproofs, helmet, webbing, smock, body armour all off and get it inside out off the rain get into my sleeping bag still wearing wet muddy trousers, shirt and boots whilst not waking the two people already sleeping in the shell scrape. A shell scrape is basically a hole knee deep and big enough for you to lie in and you put a poncho over it tied to trees. so all the above is much easier said than it is done. Then theres the fact its pouring down and on the previous night my sleeping bag got wet so I was in for one uncomfortable night until we hear gun shots at 0330 "STAND TO STAND TO..."

 

I was out of the sleeping bag like a rat up a drain pipe grabbed my rifle which is was sleeping with got some rounds down whilst the others got their kit on (on of which forgot to body armour on :Stupid:) then I got my chance to get my kit on while they covered me. Could just make out the corporals silhouettes running behind bushes so I got to give some target indication getting our section to concentrate their fire in one spot (though I doubt any one down the lines heard me except in our shell scrape) then they started using mortars and small arms combined against us. After an hour the order came to pack up and bug out  to the emergency rendezvous. That was a good day that.

hard work but good.

 

Got back to camp once all the test were done got the kit in the drying room then chilled out. Had day release on Saturday so went into Guilford got a large big mac meal and a free mcflurry due to being in the army :D first shop I went into I spent £127 on a jacket and a shirt :O

 

Been a good week. Got the assault course tomorrow, hopefully smash that. Week 9 already :D counting down the days till pass out :D

Long time no speak.

 

AAAAARRRRGGHHHH I'll have you know that despite not being the strongest or the best runner I smash the assault course :p And you're supposed to call it the "Obsticle Course" as "Assault Course" is "too aggressive" :smileyindifferent:

 

Last week I actually had loads of free time and the week was unusually easy. They rattled through lessons quick which meant we finnished around 4 most evenings. Passed the written map reading test and the Basic Life Support test so happy days.

 

We were gassed on Friday though :Skeleton: Ran 400meters in full Chemical, Biological, Chemical and Nuclear kit. Hard/hot work in a CBRN suit and respirator. In the chamber they set off the CS gas then once it filled the chamber one by one we took off the respirator off. Was funny watching people trying to talk then I was like oh crap..... its me next. Took a big breath then wippded off my respirator off "I am number rank name blah blah.." Thinking this aint to bad then BANG face was on fire, eyes stinging throat burning, nose running :Ill: stayed in for a few minutes answering questions about myslef, hometown etc in the worst pain I have ever felt. Trying to answer questions whilst your throat feels like its on fire is horrible.

 

Anyways came to Brecon on Monday for adventure training. Accomodation is old POW huts from WW2. Basic is not the word to describe it. There is only a bed :| we had to bring our sleeping bags and own pillows, knife folk and spoon, cup.

 

Had orienteering this morning which was lots of running as we were competing against other teams. We came third overall so not too bad. Then on high ropes which had a step around 80 or 90 feet high that you have to jump off and grab a trapize bar. Lucky I am not phased by heights :D then we climbed a totem poll and had to get 3 of us on this little step which is very awkard as it sways.

 

Also SAS selection is happening on this camp :|

Not a lot a I can say about the SAS. All I know is they were there on selection and on Thursday night some twits in our platoon ***** off some of the potential SAS :Stupid:. They had just started I think as the Corporal who was telling us said watch that carpark empty over the week, and he was right :lol:  Think its 8 months the selection. There was around 150 there of out of those about 4 will pass maybe less :O

Me in the SAS :O Are you mental :p

 

Lets get out of basic training, phase 2 training and a couple of years with my regiment before we start having those crazy ideas :lol: To tell you the truth I doubt I could hack it.

 

Got a tough week coming up. Two tabs, first is a 5 mile and then a 6 mile (4 mile squadded, 2 best effort) which is the last and is a test. Last circuit training and lots of shooting to get ready for the marksmanship test.

Good evening yall. Had a tough week this week (well the toughet week for a while). Had our final circuit training PT on Monday and electronic rifle range. All day on the live ranges on Tuesday, 5 mile tab on Wednesday which left me with 2 massive blisters. On the ranges all day today for the Annual Combat Marksmenship Test which I passed :D. And tomorrow we have a 6 mile tab :( but its the last tab :D

Not sure if I will be given a marksmen patch on my uniform. Because they way they do it is you do 50,100,200 and 300 meters and the total is 49 targets. Each distance has a pass mark so if you fail a distance you only reshoot that distance. But to get marksmen you need tp get 39 or better. On the 50, 100 meter shoots I hit every target so 25 out of 25. At 200 I got 7 out of 15 so I failed 200 meters as you need 9. At 300 meters I hit 7 out of 9 pass for that is 3. So overall my score was 39 which is the marksmen score but I had to reshoot at 200. Now if you fail a distance and reshoot that one and your total is now a marksmen it don't count. I did a reshoot at 200 n passed but my score was already high enough for marksmen without the need of the reshoot so i don't know if i will be credited as a marksmen even though I got the score required first time but i reshot 200m.

But regardless I know I'm and damn good shot and my first score was a marksmen score. Think about 15 people got marksmen out of 44. As i understand if you get marksmen twice in a row you can apply to become a sniper :Sniper:

Well I'm a bit battered and bruised. Had the final exercise this week. 5 days putting everything we have learnt into practice. Tabbed out in full kit which is about 35 to 40 kgs.

First night was in a platoon harbour n the way it worked was each section would be given patrol times. our section went out on a patrol at 1am returned at 2am then factor in i had sentry at 11 to 12 and 3 to 4 with revali (spelling?) at 5 = a very tired Mr Inc. Then we bugged out in the affernoon set up a hasty harbour were we conducted more patrols and as we had a late one before we got a nice early one. Day 3 was in the FOB were got to experience what dailyife in Afghanistan is sort of like, we even got attacked by sucked bombers lol. Our partol went out with me acting as a section commander. We came under contact and one of my boys had his leg blown off :( so we CASEVAC'd him back to the FOB wich was basically running with him in a make shift stretcher were messed up my hip. My hip was given my trouble anyway bit after that i was limpimg everywhere :(
The heat in the FOB was horrible, in the big tents the temp was 33.8 at 9pm :(

Thursday we returned to were we had the hasty harbor, patroed some more that's were my hip was really painful. Coming under contact and having to run I could barely move :(

Last day was the final attack having been allowed to continue i was placed on fire support to reduce the runnong i had to do. The final attack is full on section attack and is the final test of your battle skills and has to be completed so that's why for both enemy position I was fire support. After that I was taken straight off the execise with a possible stress fracture. They allowed my to do the attack otherwise I'd of been backtrooped so they let me take the risk of further injuring myself but wouldn't let my do the CASEVAC n tab back.

Got bit to pieces by mosquitoes and was pouring sith sweat all day every day must of proper stunk after 5 days :Lol:

Anyway I have to see the doc on Monday to find out what's up with my hip. Pass out on Friday :D might not be in the pass out parade though :( will upload some pics when I get home :D
