11th November is the day my little brother will pass out of the Royal Navy.

The physical is fun. Turn your head and cough.

Hope he gets on well with the rest of the it. I'm sure he will.

isn't the physical the bleep test etc? i think he's already 'coughed' at the medical lol... grin

i was commissioned on 7th November lol - it always makes me laugh that i can't remember when i joined... grin

ooo, big adventures ahead for all of you!

Ah yes my mistake, physical is mile and half or bleep test. (I threw up all over the MOST gorgeous gym instructor when I did mine for the Navy). Passed though grin.

madwomanintheattic Thu 18-Jun-09 10:40:46

tis all done at the local gym these days <sigh>
no throwing up over uniformed types until you get in the door <gives tpp a paddington bear hard stare for letting the side down with ill-timed vomit. you're only allowed to do that whilst you wait for your kebab, not doing pt wink>

OracleInaCoracle Thu 18-Jun-09 20:10:27

lol, am v jealous of him. he has a 3 day pass to the local gym. i wanna go!!! <sulk>

ThePhantomPlopper Sat 20-Jun-09 16:50:56

It was the first and last time I vomited in my entire Naval career. Not even a bout of sea sickness. Hardy Sailor type me!

lissie - I'm jealous too, I didn't get a 3 day pass, I got half an hour! But if you move to a MQ by his base you should be able to use their gym for free. Not sure about RAF rules so I might be wrong.

madwomanintheattic Sat 20-Jun-09 17:01:34

nah. usually the same. you'll have to attend a familiarisation class and probably pay £5 for your gym pass though. (obviously laminating is quite pricey...)

OracleInaCoracle Mon 22-Jun-09 10:53:37

woo hoo, passed his physical today!! only the final interview to go!

ThePhantomPlopper Wed 24-Jun-09 20:09:43
