army or marines?

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Connor, Apr 12, 2009.

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. Have not yet decided what i want to join, can anyone give me the pro's and cons' of each.

    Thanks
     
  2. The Army has a larger careers guide and the marines is smaller. So do some research you muppet
     
  3. If you want the best, Army = Paras

    If you want second best, = Marines
     
  4. Oh dear.
     
  5. wht are you thinking of doing in the army ? paras?
     
  6. As someone with a history of Asthma which can be triggered by extreme exercise would your other choice of RE Surveyor not be more appropriate connor?
     
  7. Or perhaps apply to be a track pad.
     
  8. Does that involve travelling?
     
  9. Lots! Must be willing to work under pressure :D
     
  10. Yes but is the career path not sometimes a bit slippery and I’ve heard you get can get bit stuck in the same old rut?
     
  11. That can sometimes be the case. Apparently the job involves going round in circles quite a lot? But there are pros and cons, sometimes you're on top, sometimes you're not.
     
  12. On the face of it it all sounds good but they will just grind you down and replace you and 9 of your mate randomly, just to get a tick in the box.
     
  13. :D
     
  14. Pro's Women you give money to so they will sleep with you
    Con's People who have done/are doing time at her Majesty's pleasure

    Hope that clears that up!!
