Im Joining Infantry

#1
Hey People, Newbie here

Looking to join British Army Infantry. Done my online application, got sent a information pack and also a interview which is tomorrow. I've been looking at all the regiments and im interested in the Rifles. My Friend Suggested Rifles because they work with the royal marine commando's and also alot more roles to choose, was thinking about Sniper Training but dont know which batallion to choose.

Do i need to tell the Officer in the interview about im seeking information on joining that regiment or what? :? Please Help lol

Thanks

Jonathan Hull :D

Id get your user name changed sharpish if I were you theres a lot of nasty people out there and they are not particuarly fond of soldiers or those who want to be soldiers. So hiding your identity on here is a good idea in the army its called PERSEC or Personal Security.

If you're in Hull why not join The Yorkshire Regiment? Local regiment so the lads you'll live and work with will generally come from Yorkshire. You can get lifts home at weekends and you'll support the same football teams etc.

Whichever you choose just pop in to your nearest Armed Forces Careers Office and tell the Recruiting Sergeant on the desk your aspirations - he'll be able to answer your questions.

First of all, try the recruiting forum rather than this one. Secondly, things like sniper training you get chosen for, rather than you chosing to do it, and guess what, its a lot different from COD4.

I spent two decades with 2RGJ and 4 Rifles and never once worked with the booties so I don't know where your mate got the info that the Rifles and the Marines work together. Choose the Rifles and good luck to you.

If you're looking to join the Rifles in the commando role it's the 1st Battalion you need to join, based in Chepstow (currently in Afgan). Top Regt, i've served with them
