joining the gurka sigs

#1
im at uni at the moment, but im quite interested in joining the gurka sigs, as an officer, and was just wondering if you guys had any info on how i go about this. do i need to join the sigs first, then transfer, or is it a completly seperate unit that i need to apply to join while at RMAS?

any info would be much appreciated.

cheers, S5

You cannot join QG SIGNALS per se. You have to join R SIGNALS and then you can volunteer for service with QG SIGNALS. This is done on the basis of two year attachments. You have the chance to volunteer to be a Tp Comd or Ops Offr. You can be selected for sub unit Command and for Regt Command. In the interim you will have had to follow the normal career path for a R SIGNALS officer.

In my experience I have never met a crap Gurkha signaler, plenty of Brit ones but no Gurkha. I suggest you join the Sigs and then see if the Gurkha's accept you, not the other way around. I suspect that unless you have a good reason for joining the QGS you will get a brown envelope telling you where to go.

Here we go again, The Gurkha Supermen syndrome. Of course there are crap Gurkha signalmen as there are crap Brit signalmen. I served with HQ 48 (Gurkha) Inf bde in the 60s and although I liked the Gurkhas but I found that there were good and bad the same as in any unit.
