This is a question aimed at currently serving officers of all ranks and corps. I am currently in the process of visiting as many regiments and corps as possible before I start RMAS in Jan. I am leaning towards the teeth arms however I am not going to disregard other arms on the basis that "the Infantry are the ones that do the real job and the rest are just there to support us...." Furthermore I was told by certain officers that the choice of regiments should be based on several factors not least willingness to go on ops. I understand that going on ops is the ultimate test of any young subaltern but I had the feeling that what I was being told was "if you really want to go on ops then you should choose your regiment accordingly" As much as I want to go on ops and test my skills and do what I will be trained to do. I would not like to go into war with a group of guys I just don't seem to fit in with. It seemed like a rather odd way of choosing my regiment. For me it seemed that the most important factor was how well you got along with the other officers and soldiers. My question is as follows, how important is it too feel one would fit in? firstly in the officers mess and secondly with the soldiers? If possible I would like to get some different opinions and experiences that some of you might of had in your careers. From what I have been told not much time is given at RMAS to make the decision and everything seems to be rather rushed. Thank you in advance for your replies. Kindest regards, Xoums.
