For those of you that are going, or have gone. Is there anything that can be done to prepare? From what I've read on the other threads everything is kept pretty quiet in regards to what goes on there. Does anyone know how many people they are looking to bring on or is it however many are successful? I know over the 2 serials theres about 40 of us going. Sorry....more questions then answers at this point... :P

Just be yourself and give 100%.  During interactions with the assessors, be 100% truthful.  Also take the opportunity to ask thoughtful questions about the Branch, the assessment should be a two way street, the Branch looking at you and you looking at the Branch.

For numbers being looked for, if you are a suitable candidate there's room.

I'll echo garb811's sentiments as well, good luck to the three of you.  Maybe one of you will be lucky enough to get posted to the most glamourous posting of all for MP's..........Winnipeg.

You should have been there in the mid 50's, especially in February, there was only the C Pro C school and the AB FD Bty. and they had a pretty decent Corporals Lounge.

Cheers.

Meh...the best geographical location can be a brutal posting if the people suck and conversely the worst geographical location can be the best if the people are great. 

Cold Lake and Goose Bay have never been all that high up on the vast majority of people's places to be posted yet many, many people who were posted there in the late-80s to mid-90s rave about it and can't wait to tell you all their good times stories about their time there because the morale of the guardhouses was rock solid due to strong leadership and a "team" mentality.  Same goes for the Field Pls, while quite a few people hate every minute, I think most people come out of there with friendships they keep for life and stories they'll tell their grandkids.  Conversely, although I've never been posted there, friends who have been posted to Halifax hated it because the Guardhouse always seemed to have more than its share of morale problems due to petty personal rivalries which poisoned the atmosphere for everyone.

Agreed, but that argument can only be based on the degree of negatives verses positives, which we'll not argue here.

However, even if I had been Posted and Quartered with Jessica Simpson, I will still retain my opinion of CFB Shilo and Brandon Man.

Cheers.

Actually, the Artillery Chaps were a pretty decent and orderly group. And like I said, they had a Good Corporals Lounge.

As luck would have, I returned to B Det. Mlt., only to be posted to Valcartier, but even that was better than Shilo.

Cheers.
