Hey, this is my first post, so stick with me!

On completion of my college course, im planning on going into the Parachute Regiment, or the Household Cavalry. Im in the process of joining the East of England Regiment, TA I just wondered if there is there anyone on the forum who is, or was in the HCAV, or anyone who knows a bit about them? What sort of things they get up to, what to expect etc.

I've researched a bit on the Army careers site, and i understand their role in the Army. I was just wanting to hear some things from people in the regiment.

Any view given would give help a deal.

Ta very much. :D

Clarkey.

Mix both HCAV have a squadron ish attached to 16 Air Assaukt so they do Pcompany , wear the wings & the Beret.

most of them are okay I recently spent 7ish months with them, don't listen to the stories about them.

If you really want to be happy, serve with great friends and wonderful soldiers, join RHG/D

Were you with A or B when you were far away from Knightsbridge?
Agree with you on the point about listening to stories about them

B, what fun was had by all,
2 weeks before end of tour up sticks & move now.

Would I serve with them again? to be quite honest yes. if it wasn't for the the fact Afgahnis platz isn't complusory...

QDG best reputation in the RAC , and he is going to argue with that .
Most tours under there belt(is that good or bad?) .
Based in Germany (the land of LOA and cheap beer , cars and fags )
Lots of different trades and skills (sniper , FAC, Guided weapons , assault
trooper) .
Yes QDG as recommended by the Royal Marines .

Except if you joined the RE's you'd then be a Chunk, and life is embarrassing enough.

Join the cavalry old chap. without us the entire affair would just be a vulgar brawl.

Just go Cav , if your Welsh it has to be QDG , if your a paddy/ brummie
QRH are your men . If you drive a Corsa , wear a baseball cap the wrong
way round and say''init '' go for the RTR .Which ever way you go its the
right choice as you are RAC and that means ''Killing'' with style.
