Advice

#1
Hello,

I assume that there are a fair few ppl on here that are already in the army and i've been wanting to talk to somebody that is.

I'm thinking of joining the REME, but would like to get some Tips, advice and personal opinions from ppl that are allready in.

Can you tell me a bit about what you do/have done in the army.

How you found training.

what training you do.

If you've enjoyed/regreted joining.

If you enjoy it, what have you enjoyed. (and vice-versa)

And so on........


Thanks 8)

Speak to 5Bn REME regimental recruiting team in Catterick (50 mins from Leeds). I am sure they can organise a visit to the unit some time soon. That will give you a broad overview of all the trades from the guys and girls who are on the shop floor doing the job.

PS I don’t know the number but try directory enquiries, I am sure they will be able to help.

I don't meean to be a cynic Jamie2K (or to you, Devilishdave for your very honest and good advice) but the guys and girls may be on the shop floor in 5 Bn REME doing their jobs, however (nice word) the guys and girls in 3 Bn REME have not done this for nearly 2 years. If you are to join REME you must learn the 7 questions before you enter the Careers Office.

Gents,

Long time reader, first time poster. If I may introduce myself. Son of WO1, grew up in Germany. Advice off the old man at the time, if I wanted to be in the military, join the Crabs. So 20 years later, still in, another 12 to push (19 to age 55 if I get further promotion). Having served with the Army, I will not have a bun fight about which is better. Both have pros and cons. Depends what you want to do with your career, where you want to go, what length/terms of service you want.

@Jamie2k
Obviously it is important that aircrew have good eyesight, however, poor eyesight is not a factor in the majority of ground trades in the RAF. As long as you meet the corrective eyesight criteria (i.e wear glasses/contacts)!
Some trades exclude colour blindness. Trade wise, it depends what you want to do/work on. Have a chat down the local AFCO and get a visit organised to a station.

It goes without saying that some trades do not have healthy futures bearing in mind the current round of redundancies, so get some really good info and ask lots of questions.

Good luck whatever you decide to do. Don't get upset if you get called a fcuking craaaab!!!
