Hello Chaps and Chappets. Before I begin with my rambling, please can I stress I've used the search feature and I'm well aware that this subject has been discussed before. After looking around the army website before I have found these 3 PDFs http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/rmas_cc113_list.pdf http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/rmas_cc111_list.pdf http://www.army.mod.uk/documents/general/rmas_cc112_list.pdf I decided to have a look through (Partly to find out how many places each Corps/Reg offers, partly out of nosiness!) Anyway I happen to notice that just about all the Officers commissioned into the infantry (My preferred arm) had gone to Public schools or Grammar schools. I'm slightly concerned about this as I'd been assured that selection based on Social standing was a long dead practice, apart from the household division, I'm worried about this as I'm not a Grammar boy and definitely not a Public School boy! So this has lead me believe that this 21st century army thing is a bunch of Bollocks, if you want to join the Infantry at least. Can any serving Officers or Soldiers shed any light on this?
