Hi Guys, I'm making an application to join the RLC as a driver or driver/radio-operator, and am going to wander down to the careers office tomorrow to drop the paperwork off and sit the BARB test. Just a few quick questions, if I may. 1. Fitness: I easily can manage the fitness as described to me by the recruiting sergeant, but I've noticed a few discrepancies with what they said, and what is being said on the boards. Yes, I can do 1.5miles in under 10:30, and i've actually been doing a .5 mile warm-up beforehand (with some small weights in a backpack). However, someone mentioned something about having to do a bunch of sit-ups, dips, pullups and a longer "warm up" before the 1.5mile timed run. What's the truth to this? Can anyone give an actual definative answer? 2. Promotion/Job Change Prospects: Again, recruitment sergeant assured me that basically promotion isn't too hard if I take this route, and I can decide to specialise quite soon in another field if I so desire - Is this an accurate assessment, or are they just trying to squeeze me into a role that I don't want for four years because they're short on drivers? 3. Marriage: This is one I didn't discuss in depth at the careers centre, but I am married - while not a bar to entry, is this considered "not good" by the Army for potential recruits? Also, are married quarters some kind of "earned privaledge" that I can expect to get much later in my military career (assuming I'm successful) or is it something granted quite quickly? Thanks in anticipation for your answers, oh and please don't slag me off about being a driver, it's what I want to do that matters, not your personal opinions on that particular role.
