Hi All,

I'm new to this forum. I'm applying for The Rifles and would like to hear from any other potential Infantry recruits and in particular Rifles applicants.

well done lads for wanting to join what I believe is still one of the finest Regiments in the British Army - especially days after a 'Chosen Man' was killed in Afghanistan.

I served 13 years with 1RoyalGreenJackets (formerly 2RGJ - now 2Rifles) and I shall never forget some of the amazing times I had with some of the best soldiers you could ever serve with.

keep at it lads, do well in training, don't give up and you too can become 'Chosen Men.

all the best,

Once a Rifleman, always a Rifleman....

Go 1 Rifles, your affiliated with the Royal Marines and get the chance to complete the AACC at Lympstone. I still can't decide weather to go for line infantry or airbourne its a tough decision. Punk I thought you were going Para?

nah mate, always had my heart set on 1 rifles cos its so near Bristol, i want light role and wanna do the all arms commando course with 3commando brigade at Chepstow. i believe the rifles will be one of the tightest knit regiments and if i give them my all then i will be one of the best soldiers in the world, cos after all the British soldiers are the best!!! :)

Ah O.K, yeah just give it your all thats all you can do mate. Aim high and reach the sky. Ive always wanted to be a commando, but I think I'm going to try the Royal route. I've just been training my ass off and I'm going to join when I know I'm at a very strong fitness level. I want to go in and stay with my original troop etc... Be one of the best as you say. I'd love to be a Para aswell though mate but you can't have the best of both worlds ey. See what I'm thinking at the end of the year.

Your doing well mate, you need to knock 10 secs off your 1.5 miles, don't see that being a problem though. Yeh I need to get on them protein shakes myself.
