The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
What do you think is a better job and why because I am not sure witch one will be best thanks!!!
Have we not been before, please do not become a troll, they are so tiresome...
This is my Career am talking about and I like to make the right decision I only have 15days to pick Infantry or RLC Driver and I like to make the right one!
So why not persevere with the thread you have already started...
You have recieved answers commensurate with the information you have (or not) provided; there is such a vast gulf between the two employment options you have selected that it is difficult to advise without more information.
I think you are trolling but provide some decent information and I may re-consider this opinion.
Your avatar does not exactly reassure either!
Stouty - from the variuos threads you have posted you should by now have a more than a good idea as to what to do.
However to summerise for you:
1) become a driver - gain your driving liecence for almost anything that moves on the road ( at no cost to you )its a relativly safe job and by that i mean its not directly a front line occupation. At the end of your army life you will be able to use your skills as a driver in civvie street.
2) become a infantier - learn to fire weapons of all kinds and at the end of your army life you can run around civvie street shoting people !
(bad attempt at humour)
seriously - both options have there advantages and disadvantages, its really up to you to make your own mind up, sorry mate
ITS YOUR CHOICE !!!!!!!!
ok thanks I have made my decision I am goining to do Infantry
Having just returned from Telic I think the re supply convoys and their close protection are pretty close to the sharp end.
Es ist nicht alles Gold, was glÃ¤nzt.
Percy - i did say its not directly a front line job. everyone knows that re supply etc are "pretty close to the sharp end".
The point was more on humuor than exact-ness.
sorry if i have offended
No offence taken.
Just wanted to steer the guy straight, sometimes the humour can get in the way of a genuine question.
The waahs are hard to spot if your are as gullible as I am,
what are waahs i hear that a lot is it some Army saying??
Top Quality Waah. Hope you yet fella......
Fuckin Waaaaaaaah!!!! Out.
Stouty why not do both be a Driver in the Infantry. 70% of the British Army drves vehicles anyway.
Most Infantry Bn's need specialist driver too on deployents - of course once you are in if its not for you apply to transfer to the RLC that can happen too. However if thats just a bit too close to the front line go RLC from the off.
Just one piece of advice go in Army with one eye on when you come out - get military qualification of use in civvi street and while in enjoy the experience mate - the highs the lows and everything in between.
Oh I remember going to the careers office and the St said what do you want to do son - drive I said he laughed and told me the above - I went infantry and never looked back - now where is that lamp to polish and swing!
