Hi there everyone, first things first I've been a member on here for about a year I guess, just for browsing purposes until now evidently! Right, I all but passed selection about a month ago, the reason being my eyesight wasn't good enough (I really do still think it was just a bad day!) However, I took the form to the opticians from the nurse at Lichfield and did all of the required. (even got a nice new pair of spec's out of it!) The good news from the opticians was, my eyesight wasn't in fact that bad. (?) I go to my Sergeant and hand in the papers etc, He progresses to fax them over to where ever, I'm guessing to Lichfield. As I have head nothing for about a week I rang him today and all he really had to say was, that he was "waiting for me to be allocated" Now in retrospect I should of just asked him what that really meant, but alas I'd just finished a night shift and wasn't entirely on the ball. Sorry for my ramblings, I thought I should try and paint a picture of the whole story. I would just like to know if anyone has any idea what being allocated entails? I'm hoping to join the Royal Engineers, as an electrician! Thanks for any kind of information, although I obviously do intend to go and see my Sergeant, probably on Thursday!
