Hello All. I'll hearing tonight whether my application to join the TA is successful (ADSC(P) at the weekend). I'm unsure of what trade I should choose at HQ Coy, 7th Rifles; Assault Pioneer, Medic or Signals. I'm not an civvie mechanic or engineer so joining Remy would be ill-advised. I work a lot with computers on civvie street, so I'm not too keen on more of the same. I'd like to be running around - not stuck in some trailer staring at a monitor (is Signals anything like this?). I'm not too enthused by the idea of Assault Pioneers - are these guys ever on the frontline or do they just construct FOBs and camps? ARRSEPedia says the Pioneers is "a trade to avoid like the plague". I don't want to join as a medic since this would mean forfeiting CIC (which sounds like fun). I'm sure all these preconceptions are completely groundless and I'm fully aware of how ignorant I am. I would appreciate all recommendations!
