A positvie attitude and a willingness to get stuck in,help others,learn and above all enjoy it!

As for kit,you will be well prepared by your Cadre Staff in advance.

Public speaking isnt a problem, but I am a medic so my infantry skills arent the greatest. Its not often we do tactics.

If you would like I have alot of doc's that would be full of knowledge I can send you. MODS, would that be ok? Also if you could, maybe see about training with an Infantry battalion during their Summer camp this year. My own battalion will be doing a week of tactics this year

Im in the Southern Brigade, I'll most likely be doing medic cover on an Infantry camp ths summer, so I should get my TOET's redone if i ask nicely :biggrin: Already know most of the basics of tactics from my recruit camp, plus doing cover on tactical exercises. Just need to know the more advanced stuff and practice :-D
