my friend has just gone to his first regiment and he is now saying that he is wanting to leave the army b4 his 4years are up. i didnt think that you could but can any1 please tell me if u can or cant and if so how thanks
What bit didn't you understand before you joined up?
Go and have a conversation with your Platoon / Troop sergeant and tell him that you aren't having a great time. Lots of guys go through it, you aren't the first. That should be your first port of call.
It can be like that. Do training and get to your unit, only to find that big people are telling you what to do, you have to do "duties" and then, if that wasnt bad enough, you find that someone is telling you to pack your kit and sit in a field for 2 weeks!!!
Tezza, don't know all the circumstances but I would suggest that your mate goes through the chain of command for this. He/she will understand what that is if you are a civvy. If they don't get any joy then they should go direct to the RCMO for advise. It may well be that your friend is still within a period where they can claim their Right of Discharge.
