Poet, if you could just be a teeny bit more specific I'm sure there's a lot of advice available here.

Thanks IdleAdjt.
From RLC to Infantry?

My suggestion is that you re-phrase your question and take it out of the NAAFI - unless you like wandering down the garden path.

Fair comment about Officer Berets - might I suggest a substantial length of time in the ranks before becoming an officer. This ensures you are not wearing a crumpled cornish pastie alike heap of kack on your head.

I qoute my CSM during basic: "Berets girls should look like a pimple on an elephant's arrse"

I did, just go and see your Sqn Clk and ask for a AF B241 (application to transfer), unfortunatly you have proberly been told that you can transfer as soon as you finish basic, which is usually quite hard. I also recomend getting hold of AGAI Vol 2, which lays down all the rules on transfer. Hope this helps :D Why Inf ? get a trade behind you.

Yes, I've changed a few times, as indicated by my username.

I think you're nuts to want to leave the RLC to join the infantry. A close friend of mine enquired into doing just that but packed in the idea after further investigation.

Stay in the RLC and do P Coy or the AACC instead.

Just dont start basic? wait a few months go to another ACO and try and score nice and low on the BARB. Unless the RLC have a lower score to get in than the Inf? (not saying the inf are thick, just not always as academic as some other corps)

Go Inf and be a true warrior. Don't be put off by all these milk- sop wendies. Who needs a trade when you are a god in green.
