Is infantry the way forward for me?

I agree with Suedehead. Join up to 49 Para, then after a year you're expempt approx 50% of the SAS selection anyway, if I recall. I'm sure someone on here will know for sure?

Of course it is! What's the matter, man? Don't you want to be a proper soldier?

You're a very well informed young man. Shame you can't spot a wind up at ten paces. Spanner.

I think your irony detector is due an MOT. Perhaps you should get your sense of humour serviced whilst you're there :roll:

In fact, why are you even here? You're still at school, and in no position to give advice to others.

You probably wont get the answer your looking for on here tochy01, my advice would be go to the careers office and ask a recruiter that is/has been in the infantry. AGC and RLC isnt all soldering lol if you want infantry, your local regiment or paras best bet?

You are a tool.

To the original poster, only you can answer that question. Make sure you do your homework on the various jobs available, personally I loved being in the Infantry full-time and I'm still enjoying it now I'm doing it part-time. The reason I enjoy it is because It's challenging, rewarding, the mates you'll make are fantastic and the opportunities to travel are second to none.

Goodluck with whatever you decide.

Do you enjoy sleeping out in the rain, running everywhere and digging an amazing amount of holes?

Future Squaddie,

Don't let them put you off - your posts in this thread have cheered me up no end, and indirectly you have helped me to remeber that my MOT is up this month so thanks a lot, keep 'em coming.
