Good morning chaps, thought i'd post a couple of questions on here and see if you more experienced infantrymen could help me out. I'm absolutely set on joining the army and originally wanted to join RE but due to having shite GCSE grades would not be able to do any of the decent trade choices. Now i could go and do resits but this would take a year and i'm also currently unemployed and as there is no bloody work down here on the isle of wight at the moment i think the prospect of maybe being unemployed for up to a year would drive me insane. So researching other options i've lately been tempted by the dark side that is the infantry. I'm drawn to the aspect of infantry being pure soldiering etc i think i'd be suited well to it but have a few little reservations. Once through training if not on tour what's the day to day routine like? Is there an increased frequency of tours? Now this question is undoubtedly going to make me sound quite the vagina but my parents are a bit cautious of me joining the infantry due to the nature of front line fighting, as silly a question as this may seem what exactly is the level of danger whilst on tour compared to other areas of the army? Thanks for any wisdom that you can impart. And if it's any help i'd be joining 2 PWRR.
