    Opening myself to abuse here, but bitter ex-STAB seeks training partner for fitness, AIB/POC prep and general banter. If you're in the area, give us a shout.

    My fitness is fine and I'm not exactly looking for help with selection. It would be interesting to share a beer if you're near Southampton though.

    Get in touch with your local TA squadron and ask if you can join in with their phys/fitness tests? Looks amazing for iniative and proactiveness when it comes to your interview and you will have the opportunity for someone to advise you on all of the above. I did this last year and they were very helpful, if one squadron won't help try another! Just remember, they'd be doing you a favour so lots of pleases. Good luck!

    They do the same initial fitness test though surely and if it's your positioning for press ups etc that you're worried about they could advise. It still may be useful to you if only for the fitness side and still looks good on you for doing something proactive. It's completely your call but thought I'd suggest it in case it helps

    Not sure if this is used a lot anymore but just wanted to say I am currently in the army as a Ammunition Technician (Corporal) and happy to answer any questions people have about army life.
