Discuss Joining The Rifles, Infantry. in Regular Soldier Recruitment on The Army Rumour Service; Does anybody know how things work in regards to changing battalions?
Can you be changed at any time to meet the army's requirements? Can you request a change? Or once your in a battalion are ...
Paderborn is a nice place to live, but get used to the fact that you'll have to live in some s****y places too. I'm lucky, I'm only a wife (and daughter) of a soldier. My Dad was an ASM in REME and we lived all over Germany (short stint in Cyprus too), but we also got to live in some rubbish places too.
I'm glad your excited about joining up, that's how it should be, just remember it's not all rose tinted glasses my friend.
Edited to add: Should say hubby is Infantry, we're in Germany now, then we're on rotation to go somewhere sunny, then somewhere really crud. Army Life...love it...lol
Well done mate, i go on June 3rd, have you got your dates through yet?
How did you do on your run and heaves? Any recomendations for me :D ?
Think ive decided out of 1 and 4 Rifles, 1 will be the one im going to try and go for :D
Now just gotta keep up the fitness training
Not got dates yet speaking to ACIO tomorrow about that. Did 7 heaves and got 10:06 on the 1.5 mile run. Only thing I can recommend is to do your best and do as your told by the staff, dont mess about and don't back chat.
