Infantry?

#1
Hi all, I'm currently in the process of joining the infantry. This might sound weird, but i'm not sure if i can handle bullets flying at my head when the time comes. How do i know if i can handle this responsibility since i dont want to waste my time or the armys time.

Thats why You have the 24weeks CIC .
Your not going to be given a gun and been told to shoot the flipflops in you first day .

Yep - go and do it; it's the best job in the world - wish I was 18 again.

You'll not be rich or famous, but you'll have memories to last a lifetime and beyond - and, to top it all, you will be able to hold your head high for the rest of your life!!

If you're bored of life and hate your job but want life to be worse, join the infantry. Yes you'll have memories at the end of it but ask yourself why retention is so low. In the infantry you'll be treated like shit, made to listen to people of a higher rank who are clearly mentally challenged and be forced work harder than everyone else for lower pay. As for being shot at: it just feels like an exercise, even when the rounds start hitting the walls around you, mortars start landing in the street and RPG's fly past your face. It's only when you're looking at one of your friends thats close to death will things hit home.

All that said you might enjoy it. Someone has to :)

Go Air Softing :D

If you play airsoft you meet some useless fat cnut walts and find things out about their fictional war stories and all their kit from Silvermans.

try it some time. I know it gets knocked but it is a hobby for pathetic losers who are too fat and scared to join up and you get to play with toy plastic guns like a 4 year old.
Corrected.

WTF?

Don't listen to this individual. You will meet some of the best folk walking the face of the planet in the Inf, unlike other arms and services!

Chris has clearly had a bad time of it, no doubt mostly of his own making. It is certainly not like this in the Bn I currently serve in.

Go Inf or dip-out!

It's like a football. To get the team to play on a Sunday you need a coach, manager, trainers, groundsmen, security guards, ticket sellers, lighting engineers, accountants, etc but the 11 guys on the pitch is where it's at. Who would you rather be: bog cleaner or John Terry.

In fact, don't answer that one :D

Join the inf, and be able to look yourself in the mirror in the morning and know you didn't take the easy option 8)
