Private Roy's Diary

Posted on 17 Jun 2006
After six weeks of basic training for the territorials at Waiouru Military Camp I 'marched out' at Queen's Birthday weekend. The training was hard - challenging both physically and psychologically - but it was also exciting and enjoyable.  I graduated from recruit to soldier alongside my 41 army colleagues with a real sense of achievement and, as my military friends had advised me, wore my uniform with great pride.
