Nice one IdleAdjt .... like it
Poet, if you could just be a teeny bit more specific I'm sure there's a lot of advice available here.
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.
Ensure that beret is shaped and not officer style !
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"
Look he the story wanted to go in to Infantry got the right time but got told it was not good enougth.
So i am going for my second job choice with rlc want to know how hard would it be to change cap badge? From rlc to infantry Can it be done? (If I wanted to re take rsc again be 4 months so dont want to wait that long)
Thanks in advance for any real help.
if it was reverse, then I can see the point but to WANT to go to Infantry
Yes I do dui-lai that a bad thing?
335 views and no one can answer my question! has any one here ever changed cap badge even? Just wnat to know if it can be done.
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 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)
