What?!

I've had a career change from wanting to join the police to joining the army, I just want to know what kind of things I can expect as an Intelligence officer. Why are people on these forums so unhelpful :roll:

If you want to join the Army. Don't do Int Corps unless you like nerdstation, think that telling people that everything is secret is actually cool and that being socially inept with the basics manners of a warthog is acceptable...then you will fit right in.

I had to spend a month at their training establishment. Hated every minute. They wouldn't even stand in the mess when a lady walked in....chippy w@nkers.

Thanks for your input - slagging off the Int Corps in the Int Corps forum.

rich - go on the army recruiting website look there, then go to your Army Careers advisor, there will be one affiliated to your university. And go through those channels... much more helpful and accurate

This has been posted on both the Ruperts and the Spooks forums. It has attracted no response from the Occifers, but seven on here.

Interesting no?

Trust me, if you're seriously looking for some information on the blessed Corps on the internet, that’s going to be your best bet. If you have read it, you should realise that anyone in the know on this website will not tell you any more. You'd might as well stop asking unless you are deliberately trying to goad people in to hurling nonsense at you.

If you're serious about wanting to join the Corps, are you really bothered what a few faceless people on here have to say about it? Get yourself down the army careers office. Let them have a look at you, ask you some questions and see what their answer is.

Top tips:
1. Don't take a Dictaphone with you or a journalist pass.
2. If you a fat useless Walter Mitty wanna be, don’t bother.
3. When they ask you your name, reply 'I’m Batman, tell your friends about me.'


Please, let us all know how you get on.

Just seen what Rich_2k3 has wrote in the Multinational HQ forum. Anyone spot something unusual concidering this guy is asking questions about joining the Corps as an officer? Doesnt even sound as though his a Brit....

The UK is truely an amazing place to live. Theres loads of intereting places to visit, the countryside is beautiful and the people are great.

They DON'T drink warm beer, this is an age old myth, they like it ice cold and by the pint.

It is not that expensive, only if your living in the centre of a major city, esspecially central London (studio flats can be £millions, no joke), its pretty cheap otherwise.

The people are great and have a cool sense of humor, the T.V is sooo much better than the states.

The nightlife is THE best in the world. Theres multi-story super clubs, trendy wine bars, traditional pubs and slick bar/club style joints.

Comepletly disregard all te crap about high crime, living costs, chavs blah, blah, cuz most of these peeps live in a ghetto in the worst areas of east london. The quality of life is high. The only places in the country that have high crime/drugs are the nasty inner city areas, you know the types, there are in every country in the world, and most of them are in the states anyway.

Great schools and education system, this is one of the reason american stars like to live here cuz they can bring up there kids with first class education.

Loads of castles, history and stuff, make sure your visit Scotland and Wales as well as England, loads to see.

Free Health care!

Loads and loads of other stuff too, its a great place:) ignore the ppl who say otherwise, theres always a few...
I'm not making any more comments. What a tit.

that is chippy indeed. in our mess we afford the fairer sex far more attention, normally a couple of bottles of cheap white wine and a quick knee trembler round the back of the staff quarters.

Pretty much the same as any other officer in the army. First two or three years you dont know anything and are more of a pain than the lance jacks (who at least mostly do as they are told), then for a few years you think you know what you are doing (most dangerous time) then after a few more years you become a Major and actually seem to know what you are doing.

(Obviously this is differernt for LE officers)

Assuming you wanted a serious response, what do you want to know?
