I hope for your sake he doesn't go on boards! Touched or not, it wouldn't take a genius to work out who you are 'deanfitzg'.

I done my run this morning 1.5miles in 11mins and 30 sec. Not bad for my first run. But still not good enough. I dif could of done better I could of push myself more. Ill go for another run tomorrow after work and hopefully there will be an improvement.

Another thing regarding the LA 89 certificate that they want from you if you were in the reserve or PDF. Iv just found What I thought was my la 89 cert. But it doesnt say la89 cert on it. It just says Certicate of discharge and in it is my serving number, name, address, the amount of days effective service, start date, finish date and reason for discharge......etc

Anyone know if this the La 89 Cert or if I can just bring this instead??

Cheers in advance.

Haven't heard anything yet but i think by talking to the navy guys last week that it was only last week and this for the medicals. He said roughly a hundred were being called down and there is a class of 40 being taken on in April.

Relax dude, its a pretty chilled interview. If you turned up in a suit you'd just look posh mate. Don't even bother with a shirt - just get a t-shirt.

40 out of 100 people, first impressions count... I'll be sporting a nice pair of slacks and shirt, regardless of how relaxed the interview is!
