  7. I know, but I'm feeling charitable.
  8. Stuff being charitable if he's aiming for the FT GD's ;-)

    If all research was primarily interweb there'd be no job for the RRT's, Look at life teams, and the rest of the recruitment structure.

    Then again the ACIO's/AFCO's will soon been binned thanks to Capita so who knows.

  10. I reckon the OP has never served, just has a posh-o family and has meet a few officers in his time.

    However, on a weekend visit to London, his girlfriend went out with a couple of mates (Pippa & Tamara) and he found pictures on her mobile of her padding herself out with only a Bearskin on and now thinks he can actually start a fight between Footguards regiments.
  11. Read up on mate loads stuff on net about who got a ceremonial company what they all doing at moment and so on.

    I'm going micks my self but I looked on net made my decision and talking to my recruiter
