Advice for a new recruit

Discussion in 'REME' started by SandExporter, Jun 8, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A pals lad is joining the REME via Harrogate (seem remember my cousin going thru as a JL in the Sigs) in September .

    Can the collective offer (semi-serious) advice what to send with/to him?
  2. Check pm
  3. stay away from any female that that he can't get his arms around totally
  4. perhaps you should chat with a ACIO for advice!!!!
  5. Isn't that sound advice for life 8)
  6. I'm sure he has, but there are slways things that you wish you taken, known how to do before you start.

    He's got his heart set on a career in the REME and I just want to help him out.
  7. Sent you a few details on AFC and the joining instructions dont normally come out for Septembers intake till about July/August and will probably be given to him on his attestation at ACIO. REME is a good choice
  8. Check PM
  9. All

    Many thanks for the advice.

    I'll pass it along and hopefully the youth will have a pleasant time hopefully a successful career!

    Many thanks to all

  10. Get him to tell his section commander how he likes his brews,

    I don't know which way that one will go nowadays!
  11. Words of wisdom from my Dad when I joined up "Keep your ears open and your mouth shut"
  12. I really do hope he has a most unpleasant time, I did - so did you - why should he be any different?

    "If you can't take a joke you shouldn't have joined."
  13. don't bother mate - stay in civvy street :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

    Only joking - good luck :D
  14. Prepare to be "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah'ed"
