Ive been asked to attend an interview with the unit I want to join in two weeks and I was wondering what should I take? Should I do any research beforehand and if so what? And lastly what should I expect?
Dress smart, shave, highly polished shoes - This is a job interview.
Research a bit of research about the Unit and Regiment and what they are doing now. They should have a web site with this one.
Ask loads and loads of questions, look keen.
Nay bother, As for the interweb application, I wouldnt expect to get anything remotely helpful out of that. In a month or so time a DVD and a few booklets will arrive at your address, thats about it.
Can you travel or would you like to keep local.
Have you looked here?
Hey Stayce sorry to hear its not going so well for you. I heared that applying through the net doesnt go very fast. What were they on about no woman spaces? Surely they dont have a certain amount of spaces for women? Although i know the army isnt it claims to be an equal sex employer so i would question this.
Lol i know im a girl but lordvonharley doesnt:

I didnt get DVDs or anything like that. I had booklets but only because i went to a TAC and they gave them to me.
Not my fault I did not know you are a girl. You might be a bloke from Lesbeth who is light in the loafers.
Though I have worked with some very hairy women over the years so the advice is not all wasted.
I don't know about the RAC, but in the infantry there is no actual regulation preventing female recruits joining a TA infantry unit. In theory there is nothing to prevent infantry cap badged female TA soldiers and there was a time in the 1990's when there were a fair few.
Since the Strategic Defence Review shake-up in the later 1990's, any female in the TA infantry was rebadged as an support arms (clerk/cook/medic etc). I wonder if the Armoured Corps has the same policy? I don't see how they can place a quota on females if they accepted the principle that a female can be badged and serve in the regiment.
