Discuss Air Despatcher, 47 AD Squadron RLC in RLC on The Army Rumour Service; As Fally states you can't receive both Para and AD pay but either is a nice top up for doing a damn fine job.
The unit is very close knit with the standards set high ...
As i said my first choice is Operator Military Intelligence (better work on the whole thinking side...4 years as a postman doesn't help the brain!), but i am well aware of the selction criteria. A second screening is done at Chicksands which is all very hush hush and from what i gather the Corps is not the easiest to enter. If i manage to pass ADSC but don't make the grade for Int Corps then i'm going to go for AD.
Any ideas on current intake dates? most Corps and units are well into next year, especially RA, RE and Infantry. From what i was told most RLC jobs are quick entry, Chef, Petroleum Op and Postal Courier (my specialty!!) all being fairly quick.
I on the other hand, am a fully rounded human being. With a decree from the university of life, A diploma from the school of hard knocks and three gold stars from the kindergarden of getting the shit kicked out of me.
