  1. Good afternoon gentlemen,

    I want to join the HCav, but I have been told it is full of so called "Toffs". I hate it when people say that. But is it true?

    Will I, as a middle class lad have a chance of joining the ranks?

    Many thanks,

  2. is your dad rrriiiichhh,like real rich,do you own surrey,polo ponies at least 6,,-yacht -house in london -chelsea -and another in devon-go skiing 3 times a year---well your in then..
  3. I hope you've checked that fence for splinters, pupgreen.
  4. oh and i forgot you have to like boys,dressed in tall boots with pointy hats on..
  5. so i dont have a chance?? are the lancers HCav? dont they use warrirors?

  6. no horses and pointy sticks
  7. so what regiments have warriors?
  8. infantry battalions
  9. 1140,

    If you want it, go for it, old son. IF you fail, then at least you can say that you gave it a shot.

    As for finding out who uses what kit and where, try doing some personal research on the future career of your choice. It will stand you in good stead. Then you can make your own mind up.

    Rgds and best of luck


  10. If you think the HCR drive Warriors, then you will have bigger problems getting in than just your lack of private income.
  11. what do you mean lack of private income?
  12. we are not talking about you saturday morning paper round money here..
  13. what would i have to have a second income?!?
