    Joining The Infantry

    So you're saying after DP1 we're responsible for our own living arrangements? Perhaps I'm making assumptions from army movies but I was under the impression that they would transport all of the new Privates to their new base immediately after DP1 and you would be staying in the barracks while there.

    What book are you reading now?

    Brute Force by Marc Cameron. It's about terrorists trying to take over the White House and control America and one special agent trying to stop them all. I haven't really gotten that far in the book to be honest and it's been over a month since I've last read it.

    Bettering Fitness Standards while Waiting for BMQ

    Oh yeah, I forgot I already asked this question there, sorry about that. Another question though. Is there a lot of classroom work in BMQ/DP1, and if so, is there a lot of note-taking required? Is it worth it to practice my handwriting skills before I leave for BMQ?

    Comparing the Regiments (PPCLI, RCR, and R22eR) and thier bases

    Do you know where in Canada I'm likely to be posted? Would it be near where I live (Toronto)? Also, what are the chances of being deployed on subsequent tours into a combat zone? How long does one specific tour last?

    Comparing the Regiments (PPCLI, RCR, and R22eR) and thier bases

    After DP1, does Infantry typically get posted within Canada or overseas? I always assumed that the whole purpose of Infantry was to directly engage the enemy in combat.

    Are you in Regular Force or Reserves? I was under the impression that Regular Force soldiers get deployed overseas after DP1. In either case, it doesn't really matter to me where I'm posted, I'm prepared to be away from home for long periods of time (even though I will definitely miss home)...

    No they don't contact you with updates. I had to email them myself whenever I wanted a status update. Other than that, you just have to wait.
