ICAREC and life out there

Discussion in 'Int Corps' started by cypress_green, Feb 16, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Cognitio Consultants

    As two former members of the Corps, we have recently engaged with ICAREC to support Service leavers from the Int Corps, and offer assistance with Transition, Resettlement, and with specialist employment.

    A few of this community may know us, those who do not, feel free to PM.

    Please contact Carolyn at ICAREC for details, or go to http://www.cognitioconsultants.co.uk
  2. What about those who have been out for more than a decade? Is it condidered that you are too out of the loop, or does it depend on what you are now doing?

    Do you help with CV writing? :)
  3. BA,

    Check PMs.


  4. I dont know about other employers, but I just found out last night that today is "wear your uniform into work" day here at United Agricultural Machinery Manufacturing GMBH.

    The G Shock, jeans and the check shirt are no problem, I think one of you may have borrowed my Hi Tec Trail boots and forgotton to return them? In the interim will dessies with para-cord laces suffice?

    The Mini Maglite is in the car somewhere, but the cordura pouch is probably adrift. I have been out of uniform for so long, can someone remind me, what is the correct knife for an event like this, Buck or Leatherman?

    Will I need my watch cap to walk between buildings?
  5. And you can't put your own names and faces up there because?
  6. I think you will find the knife of choice these days Sub is the Gerber. Kandahar PX do a nice line in them along with some very fetching forest cam fishing waistcoats! Very useful in the Sangin Valley this time of year :?
  7. What a Schoolboy error on my part!

    Moreso having got some early Ventile fishing waistocats for the section on an underspend some years back.

    I hear there is some good fishing if you know where to look.
  8. That's standard 'geologist-off-duty' dress, and should be avoided if you don't want to be thought of as a rock-licker by the floozies down the WhenWe-Frontier Bar.

    You can redeem yourself by substituting Courteney's for your dessies, though, when you'll be recognised as the Sheriff.

    (I had to edit that fontsize down; it made my opinion look like a loonie's ramblings, even after all this time.)

  9. 1. Everyone said - screamed, actually, that you should have gone straight at Red 97. The fuckup that caused was astronomical, and I'm sure you understand the fugue and grudges resulting. Still, so long as you've changed addresses a few times you should be alright.
    2. I know nothing. It wasn't me, and if I was involved, I was the junior perpetrator. I can give you his address in Colombia.
    3. Good article. I devolved from the argument at item 4, frankly.

    (Interestingly, I remember a meeting of people with a similar experience to mine once, when I was foolish enough to say that " ..(doing our job in NI) under stress was tremendous fun; it got the blood flowing", or some such trivia. One of the group became immensely incensed, and stated that I was demeaning the value of peoples' lives by diminishing their this and that and the other. Shocking stuff, but he was the sort of Thiepval-based twat who wore a flakjacket to go shopping at Greens in Lisburn; later to become very Senior and deeply disrespected)(by me, at least).
  10. Our man in Columbia was out here about 6 years ago and we had an interesting couple of days- what happens in Phuket STAYS in Phuket!

    If you can't find out the founders' names, address, profiles, Linkedin, ARRSE username(s), company information, etc, within 90 seconds (depending on connection speed), then you aren't worth recruiting.
  12. Whatever became of G2LB?
  13. Like what happens in Portrush with your sister, stays in Portrush ,

    except when she is really on duty in Dunmurry ,
    whilst you are in Portrush ......
  14. Right, I'm yer man. I have a thousand yard stare, rohan trousers and one of they multi tools on me belt. Where do you want me to go?

    Oh, I forgot to say that I have a stunning beard too.
