Now after talking with an officer i decided to put my hand up for Midlands Challenge, off i wander to the closest unit in the catchment area only to be told that i cant train as an armourer and will do Infantry training and then i might be allowed on the course when one runs. Now i again said i wanted to try out for armourer, No says the recruiter you can do infantry training like everyone else then if your a good little choco, you suck arse, and your a good boy, well send you on the course, thats what everyone does. From the bits ive read on hear and the army websites this is bullshit. Why do they bother telling lies when its so ******* easy to catch them out, i know there are three groups of 100 people doing the MC and atleast 200 are not doing the infantry training. I know for a fact that women have applied and last time i look girls = no infantry. The officer that suggested it clearly stated i could go in as REME and train straight off as an armourer, doing the courses as the come up. To all the recruitment people out there when someone walks up to you and says id like to join, whats the deal, can i do this trade, can i get on operations, what Adventure Training does the company do, does the PSAO stand in the way of FTRS service, dont ******* lie you will get caught and you'll lose the person. So much for the midlands challenge its more like the midlands fuckabout with lies, cheating and idiot. Some other really obvious things Fill out the forms after you've explained whats going on, what the choices are - you wont waste 6 hours of someones life then. If one of the people present cant complete most of the form with out major prompting do you really think there going to be any use - the ability to write ones name and address seems required even of the stupidist infantry member if the person cant do it suggest they come back when they can. Dont leave porn on a work computer, and then try and cover it up - you look like an ******* perve. Dont boast proudly how half the company had a big titted blonde slag in unit pictures the night before deploying in the sand dunes - youll show how the unit are a bunch of ******* perves. And finally again lieing though your teeth is a really dull idea, you will get caught out.
