    Feck. Pity.Dunno what went wrong there.Well worth looking for on that site though.Plenty of the background on the new tests.
    "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

            My point about the amount of time it will take is that jobs are being rushed, done incorrectly or not being done, things that effect people careers. There arena enough hours in the day for a lot of people.

              Interesting video on how the RFT(S) is conducted.
              I reckon with a bit of investment( drag bags etc) this would be a good one for our Infantry units at least.
