Jumping Ship!

Discussion in 'REME' started by Op2death, Dec 27, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Over the last year I have become alarmed at the amount of our fine tradesmen (Men/Women) who have jumped ship and joined either the Australian, New Zealand & Canadian Forces...Does anyone know why, is the any particular reason?
  2. because they like being in the army but not being in the country perhaps?
  3. or maybe its because too many journos on websites?
  4. They haven't "jumped ship" they have merely joined another countries Army etc, on completion of their Colour Service (in most cases).

  5. Op2death - You are the DEME and I claim my 10 pounds!
  6. I'm one of the many lateral transferees, I came here because I wanted to live in Aus when I left the Brit Army. I came after 20 years as I had the job offer and felt the time was right to move on.

    I don't miss the pension and I am loving the life here, as is my family.

  7. Something I should have done when I finished my 22 years but didnt.
  8. Doesnt your avatar name give you the answer why people are jumping ship 0p2d
