I've been hovering around this site for a while and have read some truly inspiring bits and pieces on the different roles and trades. I personally have 2 career options in mind be it REME armourer or an infanteer in the R Anglians or Rifles as I am thoroughly entranced by the history of the infantry and the skill of the REME tradesman. My questions are what qualities must one posess to take on the combat infantrymans course and what kind of changes in themselves did serving infanteers see after the course? And what challenges are there in the world of an armourer? bearing in mind that they (along with various other capbadges) muck in as well as the infantry lads.
