Joining as an officer

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by The_Newbie, Jan 12, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just before I go and make an arrse of myself someone with more knowledge than me help me out.

    Am I right in saying that you cant join a UKSF (R) unit as an officer having had no previous army service?
    You have to start at the bottom and work your way up, unless your already holding your commision?

    :?: :?:
     
  2. Enlistment rules for SF vary from time-to-time (allegedly :D). Suggest you contact the unit you intend trying out with and ask them directly.
     
  3. Am I right in thinking that you cant join any inf unit direct as an officer? or is that just regs? =\

  5. Being good Officer material you have, of course, noticed that there is a seperate Recruitment Subforum haven't you?

    Oh and you are aware of the small matter of the TA Commissioning Course?

    Mind you, could be a typical young Officer: why bother searching for info when you can just shout and have it brought to you on a tray :roll:
