Choosing engineer regiment

You get to put in a Posting Preference

It is then totally ignored and you get sent to fill a gap

Makes you feel involved though :roll:

Well, you ask for a geographic area, ie UK North, UK South, or Germany. They then flip a coin to choose one of the 2 you didn't pick, and post you there.

Don't forget... it's called an 'Assignment Order' not an 'Assignment What holiday resort would you like us to send you to?'

If it's your first posting then you'll go where you're bloody well told... simple as that!

What they said...

I put in for Northern Ireland after Gib, got fcking bast*rd Ripon. Put in again for NI after that, got sent to Germany. Asked to stay in Germany, got sent to Grimbish. W@nkers!

That said, the old cliche is true - postings are what you make of them. I acted the mong in Ripon and suffered accordingly. Loved Hameln and Wimbish though - despite my initial reservations - and now look back at both with a warm nostalgic glow.

At the end of the day, whichever unit you get sent to is the best in the Corps.

Gentleman I am afraid I need to interject into this discussion, having worked at Manning and Records.

Firstly the process is very complicated and stringently policed.

Secondly the blind folded monkey, who throws the dart at the postings map, has been trained to a very high standard.

Apologies if this is a bone question!!

So, basically the corp put you in a regiment that they want to fill a place in?

What about if you want to go for 23 or 24 regiment?

On the subject of 23 and 24, I read conflicting information, have read in places that you cant apply for the these 2 until after 2 years, in other places I have read you can volunteer to join either of these 2

This painting is hanging in the Corps mess at Brompton Barracks.

It shows "bo bo" the first manning and records monkey.

He later went on to a successful career as CRE.

you can volunteer for 23 24 at any time, including when you choose your posting on the first week at gib.

if your lucky, and have a long spell in tv troop after your b3, you can be sent to attempt the course before your trade course begins wherever that may be. if not, you will just be posted there after trade training, and then have a year to pass the course.

it's probably best to go straight from gib, as your still fit from your b3, and have yet to turn into a mong at chtham.
