Joining the Guards

Do you only do ceremonial duties for your first 6 months?
Depends on whatever the Battalions are doing/got planned.

For example SG are currently getting ready to move back up to Catterick from Aldershot. They are moving onto the new vehicles, damned if i can remember what ones, then they will be getting ready to deploy to a couple of places later in the year. I have read elsewhere that it is averaging 6 - 12 months in F company before going to the Battalion.

My advice... What do you want to do?
Look at the whole army. Royal Engineers especially

I want to do something combat based, Infantry or Cavalry. I have been told by several people that being in a infantry battalion is a very different (But better) experience than being in a large corps like RE.

Well if your good looking and hung like a grand national winner then the Guards is the place for you ( With the exception of the Grenider Guards as they all have tiny willy's and have faces like a pile of melted legos) If your exceeding good looking hung like a Grand National winner and large of Bicep then The Coldstream Guards is for you.

Kindest regards

Mate some of the sappers where better soldier than infantry. Plus you get a trade. I left the the engineers on posting in 2012. They were the only unit I knew that played hard and partied harder then, apart from the REME LAD

I am extremely good looking and I can make my pecs dance so I think the Guards are the place for me.

I don't need a trade as I already have something sorted for after I leave the army.

Go on then.
Do you have to join the Guards to get the money, going officer?

Not every Officer has a alternative income, that's not to say that some do not. How ever some of our OR's also have other income streams. Some trade for-ex some even have family money too. I could but will not name two in my old Battalion that possibly sat on more money than some of the Officers. For instance one that I will not name wore a 5 grand Brietling for his " Work Watch" and also had a wardrobe full of designer clothes that would match most wendy ball players. Plus a different car every few months and were not talking Vauxhall Corsas. Jags, Audis, Mercedes and even an Aston Martin at one point.
 
Cheers mate!!!

Assessment was great fun I was wary about most things but ended up getting a grade A throughout!!!

Run : 7 mins 45 secs
Mid thigh : 155kg
Med ball : 5.1 meters.

Not too bad eh!!! I surprised myself! A whole lot of adrenaline is involved so don't be nervous!!

Glad I've chosen winter for basic training..... What's a cnut I am for doing that......

**edit** - if you've got any questions a out ADSC, drop me a message!! No dramss

Regards.

Winter is always better. You can always put on extra kit if needed, but when it is hot you can't take take off much to cool down.
