How are Commonwealth servicemen treated in HMF?

#1
As a Fiji Islander of British descent attempting to join the British Army i would like to know how Commonwealth soldiers are viewed and treated in the different regiments.
Honesty is the best policy.
Cheers!

If that's the case, then why are you claiming to be a Fiji Islander (It's Fijiian not Fiji Islander) of British descent?

As far as I've seen commonwealth soldier are treated the same as any other bugger. If you're a mong and screw up you're in the sh1t, if you're a good soldier you'll do well, simple as.

Not a bored journo by any chance are you?

What do you mean by mong and if one happens to screw up how deep does the sh1t get? im not a journalist just bored training and waiting for the next selection team to come to the islands. Appreciate the reply.

Mong, re idiot, moron, waste of oxygen etc.

How deep in the sh1t depends what you do obviously. Overall, as a commonwealth soldier you won't get treated any differently to anyone else. No discrimination, no special favours. End of

Someone who lists his ocupation as Full Time Dildo? You cannot be serious.

If you are from Fiji, why the hell you asking about how you will get treated, theirs frigging thousands of your Island who are serving or who have served in HM Forces.

Not one i know got bad treatment, drank like fishes and were good blokes, however id say this was a fishing trip.

As you know the British army thrives on tradition. To that end, I have a delightful coloured chap who fans me when the weather becomes frightfully hot. Another man of Asian descent keeps me supplied with Pimms.

My bold: Mate, the terminology is actually a pretty contentious (and emotive) issue still. The 'native' Fijians (i.e. non-European or Indian descended) seem to have fought to retain the label 'Fijian' as theirs alone, despite attempts by Fijian Indians mainly, for the term to apply to all Islanders.

yes my learned friend you are right on the ball there. The current interim regime led by the Royal Fiji Military Forces commander Frank Bainimarama is pushing for all 'Fijians' to fall under the common name of Fiji Islander. I for one support the move as we well know race and nationality are not the same.

Try writing to Maj Gen Sitiveni "Steve" Rabuka. He'll give you a straight answer based on his experiences... :twisted:

I remember him as a Captain serving a secondment to our Regt in Hong Kong. Nice bloke and I made him a brew on the OP once - not many ARRSErs can claim to have made a brew for a right-wing military dictator, eh? :wink:
