Language

#2
Unfortunately 3 Languages are required:

Arabic for Iraq
Pashtu for Afghanistan
Russian (Just in Case)

As you would expect all the above need to be spoken like a native for all the dangerous undercover work you'd be expected to do.

Plus, if you're not already able to down a man with a pistol at 300 yds then dont bother applying..............

To join the Corps do you have to be able to speak another language? And do you need to learn one among your training? Thanks
Actually no you don't but your language learning ability would be tested. Those with that aptitude and interest would be put forward for language training - something that supports both the Human Intelligence and Signals Intelligence disciplines.

I'm tri-lingual and was turned down... !!!!!

I speak fluent English, Danish and Boll@cks.

Oddly they were very interested in my third language, but finally decided that it wasn't up to par.

I did however pass the pistol test. I had a nine mil and a megaphone in a shopping mall and shouted GET DOWN! Mrs Turnpike and her 3 year old obliged at 350m. The slimes said I cheated though!... So much for initiative.

That's because the Danes haven't been a threat since before Edgar the Unwilling decided to stay at home rather than join in the game of battleships with the Vikings off the coast of South Shields.

Trust me there are longboats lined up in Esbjerg... they're just waiting for the ice to melt.

I don't see the Int babes getting any work done at all, once the Danish combat swimmers turn up.

Would you like any more detail on my estimate Bjorn???? :kiss:

This is true. From the perspective of a proper monarchy, which saw no need to import, successively, French, then Scots, then Dutch, then Germans to sit on the throne, the UK looks increasingly like a failed colonial experiment.

Laenge leve Hendes Majestaet, Dronning Margerete II, Dronning af Danmark, de Vender og Goter, Hertuginde af Slesvig og Holsten osv osv.

Sorry, just been to Scotland and currently despairing of the Union after a couple of deeply troubling conversations.

That's as maybe, Glad, but it didn't stop the Chief Clerk of HQ UKMF retrieving some of her pubes from the Royal turdis on Bold Grouse 87, so if we want one like her, we can always clone her.

I spent 15 years asleep in the Int Corps. I'd been gone 2 years before anyone noticed!
No, that's where you are wrong. The PTIs noticed immediately as they had one less BFT failure and remedial PT stat to deal with.
