Hi everyone, thought I'd start a thread for people who are starting with Strathclyde on the January 9th intake. I have been a member of the forum under the name Samba72 but for some reason I can't access that account so have set up under this name.

Anyway enough of that, had my medical today and also got fitted for uniform. Just final fitness on the 7th of December to go before starting on the 9th of January. Really looking forward to it and the challenge of a new career.

I'm coming from a long career in the military and am ready for a change. Hope that others who are starting in January will post on here and we can use it to get to know each other a bit before we start.

I applied in March so it's taken a while but it has been a busy year for recruiting.

Good luck at Tulliallan, I applied in June had my initial interview 2 weeks ago but I was unsuccesful and told to reapply next year. Cant do the Specials either because of my job.

Best of luck anyway!

ps. very jealous!

Well done Samba1972. I am military myself and am waiting for my final fitness date (mid-Jan I hope). Being 42 I know how it feels to puff around Jackton in your 40s! Have been given a provisional start date of 20 Feb 13.

oh so its the end of feb for starting? that changes things slight and means it could still be on the cards if vetting only takes like 4 weeks,
