How much combat have you done as a sapper?

#1
Now I am just about to complete my application form and an armored engineer is what I want to be and before you ask me, yes I do love Gregg's breakfast pastries. Im wondering how much patrolling/combat you have done as a sapper as I don't want to be stuck at base constantly fixing things, I do actually want to get 'out there' once in a while!

Please I beg of you, serious answers please! :D

I try and use it on a regular basis, however, the bandwith is not to good with the current system

I hear that BCIP 5 will enhance the capability and make it so much more user freindly.

Oh god!!!! **** it then i've just written down armoured engineer as my first option but tbh i cant think of much i can or would like to do as my second option. I thought general fitter but i got told there being phased out/not really wanted. Only other option ive thought about is doing something in the infantry.

Ask to be a figure 11 target. Not the most interesting job, however regularly needed. In fact esential for operational training :wink:

You're asking people how much combat/patrolling experience they have. Do you honestly think that there are ANY trades in this man's army that don't end up sitting around painting wagons and sorting out stores? Likewise, do you think there are any trades which don't deploy regularly? If you're bent on being an armoured engineer, go for it. Don't let trivial circumstances dictate your career.

Not me mate, I'm a postie ;)

Everyone will deploy in some capacity, at some point, unless they choose not to. Don't worry about it.

Only on the first Saturday of the month, if she’s in the mood and I haven’t been in the Sqn bar on the lash, and the kids aren’t in, and if her friends aren’t around, and if she hasn’t gone shopping, and if we aren’t visiting relatives, and if I am not on Ex/Tour, and we can be bothered.

Then yes I get abit of action
