    I can't decide what trade to go for

    I've looked at ones like ammunition technician, armourer, fabricator and general fitter. Can someone tell me what life is best with one. I've read what I can on prospects and role but I need to know wether being one has better lifestyle and an overall career than the other.

    Soldier first...

    My Dad who is ex-REME has always made a point of reiterating the fact that you are always a soldier first.. I know this is true and I am not knocking it.
