I've some limited experience of the 'army' (UOTC) and enjoyed the soldiering side of it. I'm wanting to go into the infantry (as a soldier, not an officer), but have some concerns. The PWRR is my 'local' regiment but they're moving to Germany in 2009. I'm prepared for the big change and lengthy tours that come with being in the army, but being based in Germany..? Any views on the pros and cons of being based there would be welcome. Would you join now if that's where you were to be based? Should I decide against Germany, are there non-geo infantry regiments that aren't the paras (bit hardcore for me, lads), or is it seen as okay to be recruited out of units traditional areas? Finally, a bit old hat this, but with joining the infantry at 26 being considered a bit long in the tooth by recruiters (and I could be 27 when I apply), would I be pushed towards one of the regiments in the RAC, or in combat support? (combat service support holds little interest). As traditional, 'green soldiering' is what I'm looking for, would you recommend I consider these or stick to my guns? Thanks for the advice.
