Can i transfer?

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by cameron!, Jun 6, 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. This is my first post so here goes... Currently a soldier in the TA, i have been mobilised through rtmc Chilwell and attached to a Logistics Regiment. Now i have been told i can transfer into the regular army, but only to the unit i am with.
    Is this true?
    I would like to go in to the Royal Engineers does anyone have any information or contact numbers for advice.
    Thanks
     
  2. It's going to sound very cliche and "thanks for nothing" mate, but go on the armymod website, go onto the contact us area, bang in your postcode and find the nearest AFCO in your area.

    Opinion based response providing you qualify to transfer to the regulars I don't see why you wouldn't be able to do so to within the corps, unless the person telling you otherwise is within your cap badge misrecruiting you so to speak or is not fully aware of the possibilities without jumping the gun :roll:
     
  4. You can't transfer from mpgs

    Unless you are from Gib you can't join the Gib Regt anyway.

    Also are you inside the age limits to re-join?

    I was wrong - you can join as a non Gib. I would recommend typing Royal Gibraltar Regiment into the search bar and reading what others have put.

    As has been said I don't believe that you can transfer from MPGS to a Regular unit. For a start selection is different and you won't have been assessed for Regular entry. How long have you been out of the RAF?

    If you weren't RAF Regt then you will have to at least do Phase 2 at ITC and quite possibly Phase 1.

    Be aware that their are no quarters on Gib so if you are a pad you need to find your own accommodation.
