When did you speak to this person? A week ago, or 10 mins ago.

If you think sufficient time has passed, why not give her a follow up call to jog her memory.

Did you ask when your recruiter is back from Holiday? It's good to be keen, but a few extra days waiting won't break the bank.

I'll save you the time. Get a really old tent. Put it up. Wait until someone with a red face & a shouty voice comes along & tells you it is in the wrong place. Take down & re-erect a few feet to the side. Repeat until bored. For extra points do it in the dark & rain.

Spend all your time at work staring into a computer/working on electrical stuff. When you knock off spend all your time on your X-box or similar. If dangerously outgoing you might wish to try Dungeopns & Dragons or something similar.

Take your school uniform. Put lots of badges on it. Wait until someone with a red face & a shouty voice comes along & tells you they are in the wrong place. Remove badges and reapply. Repeat until bored. For extra points work out if you must or must not tuck your shirt in or roll your sleeves up.

I think that covers life in the R Signals for the moment :wink:

You forgot the bit about drinking brews and smoking tabs. Unless it's changed since I got out.

That's the advanced course along with skiffing unpopular Staff Users' mugs.

No time...too busy sending emails, ******* each other around, shagging each others wives and trying to work out what badges go where...
This from a Loggie?!? Do you not have a single mother to take off duty and a Fijian beating up his wife to attend to :wink:

So, what trade are you hoping for in the Royal Corps?

In all seriousness I was only R Signals when I joined the TA, but the majority of the members of the Corps Regular & Reserve I worked with were solid chaps/chapesses & generally pretty bright. Admittedly there was quite a bit of putting up & striking down tents, but there is a lot of variety, the chance to get a trade, and for those into that kind of thing the funny-coloured beret outfits too.

If you're on LinkedIn it may be worth applying to join the R Signals group. As long as you don't treat it as Facebook an aspirant member of the Corps should be able to get some sensible insights there.

I once knew a Captain who loved coloured berets. During the course of his career (from Junior Leader to LE officer) he collected every colour possible within the corps.

But to get back on topic (almost), Capt. P is correct, R Signals offers it's members an awful lot and it's a fine ambition for a young man to want Jimmy dancing above his left eye.

I certainly enjoyed my 13 years in the Corps, but I guess six years of that in Cyprus might of helped. 626 jnr did the Signals look at life course a while back before she joined bleeps for real, really enjoyed it as well.
