  1. Well, unfortunately after speaking to my parents, they weren't impressed when I told them I wanted to go Infantry,

    They would rather I chose a job which I can get a trade from.
    Dad says this because he was a machien gunner with REME or something and was attached to a couple of Infantry Regiments in the mid 80's I believe, and says there's not alot of work for ex-Infantry soldiers when they leave.

    But they have agreed that they're happy If I get a job with a trade, and still get attached to Infantry for ops and stuff.

    So I've been looking at a few jobs, and any help/information/pros and cons for them would be much appreciated.

    Please bear in mind that i'm going for Junion Entry, Thanks.

    1 - Combat Engineer.
    2 - CS Operator.
    3 - Tank Crewman.
    4 - Special Gunfire Observer.
    5 - Light Gunner.
  2. I will get right on it, just after I peel you a grape....
