Au contraire Aunty S. I jumped ship in 99 after 7 years in God's trade and although I didn't get the £400 a month I can vouch that 3 years on Lance Jack higher band pay while getting student discout with my NUS card was fun fun fun. Me, I proved that it doesn't have to be gay and had a very interesting training. As for arse wiping, I bet you do it every day - more if you have kids.
In conclusion I can heartily reccomend QARANC nurse training to anyone who wants to be a nurse and wants to maintain contact with the army and wishes to remain on a decent wage.
Why did I not join up as a QA in the first place? It was not an option at Harrogate.
Want to spend the next 10 years being treated like a child, being severly fooked upon from a great height for no reason, want to wake up one day wondering why you have put up with this bullshot for the last ten tears just get some jumped up ssm trying to shove his pace stick up your arse cos his wife his shaggin one of tyhe siggies, if so stay in the signals, if not join the QA`s
Join the QARANC, yeah you have to be a nurse and get s*** from everyone but smile to yourself knowing that you get to spend three years at uni on full pay, with an extra 400 quid a month for food, live the life of a student/sqauddie and be respected
F**k that. Do the Foremans course. Where you dont get to go to Uni. Get f**cked over for two years. Get told you are the cream of the Corps while at the same time your whole course has to go and do piss monitor when CDT come calling. The best bit is the two quid a day pay rise which will be swallowed up by your new quarter charges because when you get posted you wont be living in filth. And to top it all off you get to watch Staffys who do the same course get five times the pay rise you do.
