Transferring to a different cap badge.
Im due to get promoted this year to Lcpl in the rlc, the trouble is that I do not like the job I do and I'm thinking about transferring to 4 rifles. If I do pick up rank and do my mpc courses or even jnr Brecon. Would I still keep my rank if I transfer?

a) What trade are you?
b) Have you had a posting outside 13 LSR? (ie have you got any more experience of the Corps other than log runs round Colly and CLPs in Afghan)
c) Have you considered changing trade within the RLC instead? Or going to a more exciting unit?
d) If you've been selected but not wearing, it's unlikely you'll retain the selection for LCpl.Gladly returned to society after a while of doing some cool stuff, some boring stuff and some other stuff.

I'm a driver, I'm posted to Warminster in September I have had a look but I don't like any other trade, I want more of a challenge to be fair

Have you looked into the Inf closely...I mean REALLY closely. Spoken with people in it and everything else...ever wondered why lots of them re-badge..?
Have you looked at AT...or indeed get a taste of that kind of challenge with a posting to 11 EOD as a No.2?
I'm not usually one to big the Corps (indeed I've signed off, disillusioned as hell) up but I can see why a junior Dvr trade chap would see their trade as a bit wank and see greener grass over every fence - look inward first - I know the Inf talk a good game and have (one of?) the most exciting jobs on Ops but in peacetime, it's a lot of sitting around getting fucked about.Gladly returned to society after a while of doing some cool stuff, some boring stuff and some other stuff.

The grass is always greener on the other fellow's grave...To eat well in England one must have breakfast three times a day
London: its "buzz" and "vibrancy"... can be codewords for drugs, late-night noise and multi-culturalism run (literally) riot.

Its hard to retrade to AT or even get a posting to 11eod. It was even hard to get a posting out of 13aasr. But I will look into it thanks.

Wait until Thursday. There may only be one capbadge from then.I can say the name of that railway station in Wales, as well.

I don't see the whole infantry merging into one cap badge.
