PS Gladrags, how did you find out he's Armed Forces?
I think Mr Rowley was a little naive, he really should have done his homework! If you are going to "skip" parts of the course then at least check your watch and keep the timing right,lol. Do you know that you can actually "miss " 15k and still cover all the mats, you can even miss 1 and "save" 25 k
