Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. alright guys,

    im in training at the moment, but am thinking about changing trade.
    being a bright sort of lad, it has been suggested i think about a geo trade rather then being a knocker, as it would mean the corps benefits more from my brains.

    now i read through the blue book on armynet, and glanced over the EOD specialisation annex.
    they seem to me to suggest that you need to be from an artisan trade in order to go to 33.

    now army jobs says 'the royal engineers...blah blah booties paras divers EOD'

    so basicly, if i did change to a ME(geo) would that nail shut the coffin of my wish to do EOD at some point, or has the army done the usual by taking the hardest route and managing to confuse everybody to the point where nobody knows whats happening?

  2. geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek. 8O :wink: 8O :wink:
  3. Snigger!
  4. Dont do either be a Driver get out and about in a warm cab, Knockers freeze in the back
  5. planty's take up the back(door). :wink: :D :wink: :D
  6. What a complete load of fcuking bollix!

    The Corps would benefit from 'your brains' regardless.
    Whether youre sat in an office compiling data on whatever, or whether your putting your so called brains to good use doing dems calcs or planning the best way in which to attack a far bank with your section, your weapons, a small weasel and a 5 bay MGB.

    As much as I slate knockers off (nearly as much as Coneheads) there's no way that anyone can justify the part of your post that I quoted above. I think theyre simply gap filling.

    Or maybe they simply think you wont make it past Sapper... :wink:
  7. Check your PM
  8. if you meant me, iv not got anything.
