Might be joining an infantry reg, so just wondering if whilst on tours they do patrols every day or every 2 days etc?
Whoaaaa. It's nice to be prepared etc, but shouldn't you be worrying about Phase 1, then phase 2......then the op tours?

Yeah but my recruiting officer told me I'd best be suited for Artillery etc due to my small frame... So I was just wondering exactly how much strain would be put on me if I went infantry

Do you not get fast tracked if your prestige is high on cod?

You're too small for the infantry so he's suggested the people who hump round the biggest munitions the Army uses for a living instead?

Who says that all of the pisstaking's gone out of the Army?

Eh? They don't expect you to crawl up the barrel to clean the ******* thing. That's what pull through staves and Fijians are for.

The CO of the Regt that is on tour organises a rota with the opposition so that they have a set patrol timetable, because you would want to waste your time going on patrol and not meeting the enemy.

Forget the piss-taking, serious answer; it depends how hard you negotiate when you're attested - and make sure you have it in writing so the RSM has no comeback.
