Ok im now in my last year of uni. And decided I want to join the Royal Engineers. However I can't decide between joining as an officer or a sapper. I don't want to join as an officer and take command of a troop without any experience. As I am worried I will fail the people under me. Whereas a sapper I wouldn't have that responsibility. What are the benefits and short comings of each? Any other advice for what regiment/trade to go for in the corps? cheers EDIT: For those pedantic people out there.
