SCOTS DG soldier
No day in the SCOTS DG is the same but as a new Trooper a typical day would loosely be based on the following:
||Breakfast - All meals are ‘pay as you dine’ so you only pay for what you eat. The cookhouse offers a varied choice in meals at a very reasonable price.
||Physical Training (PT) - This can range from a steady state run, to circuits through to activities such as battle PT which can include activities like stretcher races and unarmed combat all taught by SCOTS DG Physical Training Instructors.
||NAAFI Break, time to change from PT and have a coffee and a snack from the café (known as the NAAFI)
||Parade followed by morning work. This can vary greatly from working on the vehicles to having lessons on weapons systems or tactics or to practising your skills on a local training area.
||Afternoon work activities will usually be similar to the morning activities. Within barracks, Wednesday afternoon is dedicated to sports of which there is a large selection (see link on left navigation).
||In the evening, the soldiers tend to relax, playing video games, watching dvds or going to the on camp bar. Many soldiers who live in the Fife area can go home. With Dundee and Edinburgh nearby there are plenty of opportunities to socialise.
