firstly, i know there is no way i can actually prove this, but i am not sum little ****** just blowing smoke up my own and everybody asses, about wanting to join the Rifles and the british army. i have been saving and training (saving because i am from N.Z and as you may know if costs a metric shit load to fly over and get a visa so on and so forth...) extreemly hard with the sole aim of joining the rifles 5th Batt (warriors Rock the effing house!) or any other Rifles Batt if not 5th. however being in N.Z, it is extreemly hard to find anything out about the seemingly elusive 5th Rifles Batt. so the aim of this post is this, Inviting any serving member of the Army, spesificly the Rifles 5th batt, to tell me as much about the Batt as you know/can be ARRSED (Clever ae...) Writing to convince me further that it is worth traveling half way around the world to join. now i know you may think, "i dont give a flying F**k weather you join or not." and thats fine, if this is your view, just dont post a comment. however any comments posted would be a HUGE help to me and you will have my word that in a year, when i am in the batt. if you a approach me i will shout you a pint! i know it is an Armoured Infantry Batt, i know the history and all that is displayed on the MOD site, i just want some inside info on things like operational activity (if it dossent defy OPSEC) Day to Day life, training, the camp and the people. Thankyou all so much, and i apoligise if i have been at any stage Daft/ignorent, have started a new and unnessery thread, and of cource for my grammer and spelling, we are a slow race us Kiwi's.
