ATR Lichfield Closing????????

#1
Alright guys. Going to Lichfield on 10th September, but I'm pretty sure its closing soon. I'm concerned to say the least that either I'm going to have to wait longer or I'm going to turn up there and the whole thing going to be closed. Does anyone no when it closes, if there actually is an intake there on Sept 10th, and if not where will I go and will I have to wait longer? :? :? :? :?

Cheers, any info would be much appreciated :D

Yes the Army is going to spend money on your train tickets to get you to a base that's closed :?

Don't think it's closing until much later.

I'm not to fussed where I end up as long as I go on 10th Sept I joined the army last September so I think I've waited long enough already!

It's not uncommon Trussell, depending on what you're joining. I did selection in September '06, and went for REME Blackie (Air Tech). Got quoted, eventually, a joining date of April '08.

That's a long wait.

So long, that I did Officer selection in the mean time and now start Sandhurst in January.

If I wanted to certain trades in the Sappers I'd of had to wait until may 08 not quite as long as The_Goon, but still pretty long

Indeed it is. But a good move, I think. I had the required qualifications, and apparently I possess something Officer-like (Possibly my Cords...) and so to Sandhurst I trot.

It's been a long time since I've been to Lichfield so the information I had is probably out of date. Weren't they shifting all the Royal Signals and Engineers away from Lichfield to Pirbright and moving the RAMC in there?

No, i'm no longer going for REME. For one thing, you need a degree to be an Officer in the REME, so i'm out.

I'm going Army Air Corps, I hope. I have flying grading in September, and if it goes well, and I do well at Sandhurst, they might just take me.

Sounds good. Do they give you a scholarship of something or do you pick your regiment/corp and trade etc. after you've done your officer training?

Become an RTFL pilot - dangerous but a highly skilled combat job!!!
