Day to day life as an RMP soldier

Discussion in 'AGC, RAPTC and SASC' started by jack_97, Nov 3, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Last year of high school, and I'm looking to join the RMP. What is the day to day role? Atmosphere arround the base? I understand they get a lot of stick from the rest of the army, but what's the situation within the corps? Do they all hate each other too? Are you on the higher end of the lance-corporal pay scale? And is it anything like an infantry rifle company? Just a few of the many things i'd like to know, I'd appreciate any answers, just no 'monkey' bullshit.
  2. One of the primary roles of the RMP is evidence gathering, ie using the search button.

    If they suggest you go out for a friendly kick about with some locals and only give you 10 rounds each decline their kind offer.

    Just detested by the rest of the Army 24/7/365

  13. Why not become a soldier or a policeman instead of something that is neither? Plus everyone hates you, not because you're that upstanding guy stopping us from committing crimes, rather...........oh you'll find out.
    Had one ask me why the number plate on my Land Rover didn't match the one on the trailer. You'll understand the stupidity of that when you join.
