Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by mikerascal19, May 6, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Jus looking for a bit of info on the signals.

    I've just passed selection and I'm going for RSigs Electrician.

    I don't know how this is as a job, but the reason I joined is because I wanted to serve with the corps.
    Jus wondering what lifes like in the corp? and also, after phase 1 and 2 I'm considering puttin in for p coy and seeing how I do there....buts thats a way off atm
    any thoughts?
    sorry if this is sum borin post, but hey, who gives a fcuk

    edited for chatting utter crap
  2. Dont get your first question.

    Life in the Corps (As in all the Corps') is extremly busy.

    Get to your first Unit before thinking about P Coy.
  3. sorry...

    first post...

    was a bit of a shocker
  4. What do you want to know about being an Elec?

    Mate, purely out of curiosity, what made you choose the Royal Signals? Was it your own decision after having viewed up the options or were steered towards the Corps by the recruiter?

    Just being nosey about why recruits choose the capbadge that they do.
  6. My recruiter was in the royal lancers, so he had no say really.
    Without a doubt I've had myself set on the para's, as my fitness has always been good (in my eyes)
    I wanted to join a regular unit first and also get a working trade behind me, and make sure I'm a good level of fitness, then put in for P Company.
    But out of all the combat support corps, I thought the Signals would be a good corps to join and get a good trade behind me.
    but from what I'm reading on Arrse, is that all the Signal's do is scrape rust off tent pegs...
  7. That is bollocks, all of our tents are brand new :wink:

    Seriously, The Corps is as good as any for trade/promotion/career.

    You also have the option of para/taped eyes/AAcommando, etc.

    It is up to you.
  8. taped eyes?
  9. Eyebrow removal.

    It happens at your first Sqn function :wink:

  10. Great!

    My eyebrows are fcukin huge

    They've needed sorting for ages :D
  11. could this be a journo??
  12. Wanting to find out what life is like as an ED? I know journalists like a bevvy but come on...
  13. Could be a journo, his spelling is worryingly good for a pot ED

  14. PD and choff, hope your next sh1te is a massive hedgehog :wink:
