Hi,
Thought I'd start a topic for my 1st post rather than butting in on someone else’s conversation.

I’m currently trying to get into the Int Corps. The place where I applied is really booked up for the BARB exam so I’ve got quite a while to practice.

I’m not great at spelling, and my arithmetic is a bit slow. However I do have a fairly high IQ, I’m very interested in Psychology and practical problems. Will this help sway application or is there a set score you must pass in the selection exams?

The site is really interesting, I’ll have a good look around before asking anymore questions.

AND he did a Cambridge comma after "and". Perevodchik would never countenance such an atrocity.

Well done for spotting the intentional mistake.

What are the SLA rooms like up in Chicksands?

I was thinking more along the lines of "mornin' CR"

SLA? Hasn't he picked up the lingo quick, too? It's not bad, but the maid service has gone down-hill of late; all these Poles etc. but at least the extras have dropped in price.

lol. Thanks.
Maybe I should join when the maid service picks up again.
Shame The Int Corps has moved to Chicksands. I live about 5mins away from Ashford.

How many people are based at Chicksands?


I was also quite interested in the extra soldier training. On the army jobs website it says that after your phase 2 training you then attend more soldier training and become a class 1 soldier.
Is this because you need to be a higher class of soldier in the Int corps? or to give you a better feel of what the other guys are able to do? or does every one in the army become a class 1 soldier after phase 2 training?

Looks like someone who is posting during works time, so that rules out anyone still serving then ? 8O
 
#13
What constitutes working time on a Friday?
 
#14
Lol,
Why do you think this is a wind up?

Is it cos I’m being really thick about something and havn’t caught on yet?

Too right - the wrong sort of question mixed in with daft questions, and too much knowledge of obscure TLA = journo or incompetent spy walt...

Or maybe I have had too much plonk before I venture out for a long good Friday :D

Mrs Raven shame on you, you should know by now there is no such thing as too much plonk. Especially cheap red.

What daft questions? What knowledge?

All I know is what can be found on the army.mod site and from talking to the recruitment officer.

I was interested to know if the SLA rooms had been upgraded cos There was some info on the army.mod saying that a load of money had been allocated to upgrade single living accommodation in the army.

I also wanted to know how many people there were at Chicksands.

I'm no Journo, I'm a Papermaker, from Kent. I work for Whatman.

True - and I have worked out how to jam the thing on the side of the box on whilst I lie underneath it and inhale deeply. Army coffee tables are the perfect height for Tesco's wine boxes... :wink:

MDN does something similar with glass topped coffee tables but that should probably go on another thread!

Noticed his syntax and grammar have suddenly taken a turn for the worse. Perhaps he is hoping to disarm us with his newly acquired estuary accented-typing. Lawks a lordy; it's David Cameron!!!
