Been in the Sigs now for a little over two years, qualified soldier however no trade as I opted to go down the Potential Officer route. Finally went to Westbury in January and got a Cat 2 (24) needless to say this was a blow to the old confidence. In my debrief at RCB it was suggested that I join the OTC to be amongst "likeminded individuals", I like the idea of the OTC but I cannot join until I start University again in September which leaves me twiddling my thumbs for a few months. I have no desire to continue with my current regiment, it was out of naivety that I joined. After talking to people on courses as early as TAFS I warmed to the idea of the infantry, a feeling cemented by the infantry training received on TAOC. Twice now I have tried to transfer and both times been strongly encouraged to stay for whatever reasons, I suspect to keep the OC's numbers looking peachy. As a result of this I have hardly trained with my unit and am constantly looking at surrounding units. The situation as it stands is that I want to join an infantry regiment as soon as possible and begin training again as a Jock and put the Officer idea on the sideline for a while as I get stuck into University however I don't want to discard the idea of the OTC. The problem lies in that my local regiment 52 Lowland may not take me on for three months, train me then let me transfer to 51 Highland when I move away to University where I have been told I can train with both my own unit and the OTC. My big question is who is best person within my unit to speak to regarding this? PSI? PASO?
