I was wondering if someone could help me out: I am wanting to go regular officer after uni, and have always been really interested in the Household Cavalry. I went to a fairly average (not very posh) private school in aberdeen, and im far from upper class, and i was wondering if its worth getting in while risking not being able to afford a social life with your fellow JOs However, I am aware that they are traditionally the poshest regiment in the army, and have heard some horror stories about their mess bills being higher than their salaries etc etc. This said, i have also heard different things from other people, such as they recently commissioned an ex-para corporal etc, so you don't HAVE to be loaded to join... I fully understand that there will be many rich and socially grand people in the officers mess, and indeed a couple of my best mates at uni went to Eton and Winchester, and it don't bother me, but is this exclusive or are there non-aristoctratic guys too? Iv recently passed briefing and i have main board this June, and im hoping to get some fam visits done soon to a few RAC regiments, so I was thinking of going down and seeing the Hcav for myself... Anyone got any advice about whether its worth trying?
