hey guys :D my names chris, 19 years of age, 20 in febuary. after long study at home and being sick and tired of being stuck behind a desk for the last couple of years i decided to push the thought of going to the army right to the front of my think box and i sent off my application.

i have been thinking about it since i was 16, and now im going to do my best to get into the best. BUT, i need some help on a few questions! :D

first off, i sent my application off yesterday (via online) for the position of 'soilder' as im guessing you have to choose a certain path once accepted, which id like to be infantry... whats going to happen now? what choices would be best for me? so on and so forth.

i dont want to swamp you lot with info, just a general idea as to where i am within the process. i just want to know what ive got in store for my self.

If you've been stuck behind a desk for a couple of years, then I would sugest you get out and do plenty of phys!
My current post involves much time at a desk battering a keyboard and its turning me into a right lard ass, mind your still just a "bairn" so you should be ah right.

In this army of the day is this a new position, in my day we were always referred to as "soldiers", is it a new rank ?????

after having a browse through, ive come across 2 choices that seem the perfect fit for me.

http://www.armyjobs.mod.uk/Jobs/JobDetail.htm?armyjobid=RA140/149&category=1

this observer post seems a brilliant idea! something i would enjoy alot.

OR even better

http://www.armyjobs.mod.uk/Jobs/JobDetail.htm?armyjobid=INF101A&category=1

i would specialise in the 'Sniper' role.

please do tell me if i start to get annoying with my constant posting on thoughts on this matter. its just i havent anyone else to discuss this with close to me.

Taxed? Pretty soon you'll be paying HMG for the privilage of serving your country.

Go to your local recruiting office and have a chat with the nice Sgt in there. The intenet is fine but somethings need a bit of face-to-face. You'll even get a brew.

just rebuilt my pc today with a new wc setup, so could do with it running for 12+ hours to bleed out the air.
