Do what you least enjoy first, then you have something to look forward too!!

But you never know you might enjoy your first posting more than you think like i did

If single definately Germany. If you can either Osnabruck or Herford. JHQ is not so great, usually praised by those who are there but they don't seem to have the same experience of the German culture/nightlife. If you are married then get to a section in England. Do not bother with NI, it's shutting down.

Another way of looking at things is if you want to deploy with an entire section find out which Brigade is going and where. If you want to go it alone get to a sy section.

If you want a suntan, go to Cyprus.

With any choice just remember to have a good time and make sure the Section has a bar!

God bless the Corps!!

Feck germany off, the AB or CDO sections will sort you right out.

Or failing that get to NI before they stop dishing out medals and extra pay for it!

Thanks all. appreciate it. Had a quick look over the Intelligence 'cliches' thread.. funny stuff! They do still teach most of those sayings!

qualified for mine over a year ago, just got handed it last week. ah, the medals office. almost as good as NTL. i love NTL, the stupidest company on the planet. when i didnt pay my phone bill on time one month, they SUBTRACTED it from the following months bill, and thus asked for just £7 instead of £150+. and their uniquely incompetent computer system meant they couldnt even find me on there when i phoned up :)

Germany. Cheap car, cheap fuel, cheap booze, Amstrerdam, Hamburg, LSSA when you go on UK course (over 10 days naturally).

Don't get me wrong there disadvantages ie you can't go home every weekend but hey, who cares.

Germany, no arguement for a single first tour.

of course they look at it. how else can they ensure your posting does not match anything you've ticked? :roll:

I got the posts I asked for! This is my second posting and it's exactly what I wanted. I just rang round and asked guys if they knew where gaps were coming. I put my PPF in at the right time and I was off!

Something to ask when you do ring up though is whether they have a bar/liaison facility... bugger...

I was just about to say, it's not really a pattern yet is it?

Seven or eight? How long have you been in CR? Posting extensions, a year at a time, are the way ahead.
Only problem is you only get one when you don't want it!!! Never been extended in Germany or Cyprus.

Lincolnshire tho', there's an extension paradise if ever I saw one....
 
#18
i've never extended anywhere - don't you find after 2 years that it's been great, but the right time to move on?


ok, you're a darksider. forget the "it's been great" bit ;)


as for how long i've been in... if you go by rank, about 8 years! :lol:

but i'm just up to my ninth posting now, not including op tours.
 
#19
The only place CR has extended is around the waist!!

As for first postings...just put down what you fancy, then bang for SD's as soon as you can. No matter where you go, you'll end up on Ops soon enough. Just enjoy and get used to be f*cked about...

right lads..on the bus, off the bus......

I had a great time in Germany for my first posting. I put Rheindahlen down as my number 1 choice and got it. Never happened since mind you...

If you like drinking, socialising, cheap cars, cheap cigs etc etc then stick it down.. all good fun.
