Hi all, Sorry if a similar thread has been raised before..... My son is belly-aching about joing the Army - he's a newly qualified Electrical Fitter and can't find any work in Civvy Street. He wants to try for either REME or RE - questiion is with all the redundancies going on - is it even worth bothering ? Does anyone know what the likely waiting time is for a position to come up - some of his mates say the RN list for A/C Handlers is FOUR YEARS !!! Any thoughts or comments wlecomed !!
