I'm shortly going to Briefing, and with any luck then to Main Board and Sandhurst in May. My corps of choice are RLC or Signals. I know people in both, and I get conflicting advice every time I talk to them. A few people I know in the Signals say they wish they had joined the RLC, and I'll agree that there are plenty of things about the RLC that attracts me. However, there are also several things about Signals that attract me, and the problem with what you read in the recruitment spiel is that its all pretty much the same, whichever corp you look at. Chance to lead, diversity of role, good career prospects, good sport and so on. Both corps appeal to me a lot, though at the moment the Signals is slightly ahead because they say you are highly likely to be sent on operations quickly after commissioning. So I'm just after some friendly advice, on what an Officer can expect. I have my fam visit in January which is sadly after my Briefing, but the earliest they could manage. I realise at Briefing I don't have to have chosen a career, but I want to go in forearmed as to which corp I want to join and why.
