You shouldnt really post your name on here mate, never mind your regiment.
With regards to your question, im in the same boat as smudge mate, cant really say what the careers office will do to/for him. If he is scared of typing on this site or even going up to the careers office, whats he gonna be like in a contact??? If he is serious about rejoining tell him to get some bottle and go the AFCO.
At the end of the day, the worst they could say is no.
I havent spoke to anyone in the battalion about it because if he is accepted he will come to the regt and will most prob be known as my mate and i dont want that. at the same time i want alot of arseache inquiring if he dosent even get accepted.
Knowing what the Vikings have just been through on Herrick and the name they and some of the lads made for themselves in Helmand, most with an average age of 18 - 19 many on their first tour. Would you really want this shurker in the Regiment I know I wouldnt.
As much as a friend he might be all that he might only be in for is to be part of the reputation that the Batallion now has.
