I've decided to try for a TA Commission as I complete an Open Degree to get something out of my wasted uni years before hopefully going regular in a couple of years' time. My background over the last couple of years (along with a bit of fair ribbing) is here: http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=107625.html My question is: which of the two equidistant units here would I enjoy more? I've got the Leicestershire Yeomanry to the south and the Steelbacks to the north and both look quite decent to me. The L'shire Yeomanry are FR and CBRN, and from what I gathered at the careers office have quite a varied role. I'm drawn to them more than the RAR at the moment mainly because of the greater variety in training, in that they operate both with CVR(T)s and on foot. Am I right in thinking that, or is the focus far more on one than on the other? The CBRN specialty is good too, because it'd be completely unlike anything I've ever done before to the same extent that soldiering would be. The only information I can find online about the 3rd RAR in Leicester aside from Wikipedia really emphasises the infantry pioneer aspect of the company, although I'd have thought that that is just a specialisation open to its soldiers. That's something I think I'd really enjoy learning, so if it's training many or most of its members get to do, that would be quite a big factor in its favour. I'd really like a brief comment or two telling me whether my image of the two units is about right or not, so if there are any current or ex-members (or anybody else with something to say), I' greatly appreciate your views here. - Edited once for gibberish.
