September 2017 course

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd make a new thread for everyone who has been selected to start on the September intake. Hopefully use it as a place to speak to our future colleagues before we meet them. 

Luckily I got the base I had wanted, so to say I'm chuffed is an understatement. I hope everyone got what they wanted. 

Anyway, hope to speak to some of you, and looking forward to getting started.

Was that one of your preferences? I was so happy to get Faslane as I think at the time I applied there wasn't really much space at either of the Clyde bases, and living only 50 mins from both, it was perfect.

Coulport for me. Was very unexpected because I didn't think there would be many vacancies there and I thought I'd be having to wait until the next intake anyway. 

Does anyone know what mobile networks tend to work best down at Wethersfield? I'm on O2 which has worked fine when I've been down but might be changing.

Congrats mate m, that's good you got something you were happy with. I agree that it has been a long wait, but I'm sure it'll be totally worth it. I applied last July, then done assessment centre on Feb and starting on this September intake. Suddenly it all feels so real now. Absolutely buzzing to getting started tho.

I'm happy to have got Portsmouth as I'm relocating and have family there. Better choice for me than AWE but I do regret not getting issued with c8 as it's an ally wee weapon with more punch than an mp7.

Good stuff mate that your happy with your base. What date were you doing for the assessment centre? I was the wed and Thur of the assessment week in February. I probably met a few people off of this site.

Best case scenario you never have to fire the weapon in a real life scenario anyway! ?

That's absolutely true and I think its a real testament to our firearms officers here in the UK when compared to many other places in the world that so few of our firearms officers have ever had to discharge their firearms in anger.
