I'm on the list to join the REME as a VM very soon, i've got my start date for Phase 1 training on the 26th o feb. Only problem is I want to join the Rifles and be a full time soldier. Basically I put my name down to join the REME instead of Infantry to keep my parents happy 'cause they didn't like the Rifles idea too much, but being this close to leaving I realised if I join the REME i'll end up looking at the infantry lads gettin stuck in and wishing I was part of it. I picked VM as a trade cause I like to mess about with cars, but i can't see myself doin it for the rest of my life. I know I could be a damn good soldier if I go Rifles and It's what I want to spend the best part of my life doing. Is it too late to go to my recruiter and ask to be moved to Infantry? Will my date get put back? Please help!
