Hiya guys,

My name is Matt and im from Newport, South Wales.

Just joined 100 field Sqn in cwmbran RMONRE (M).

Thing is im already qualified as a car mechanic in civvie street. could i use this and miss stage two training ? or would i have o do an army input ?

Also i was wondering if anyone knew anything about becoming a commando engineer. It could be something that interests me. Im pretty much in the dark and dont know what i want to do in the TA.

Thanks for your help,

Matt.

Welcome to the site Matt. Firstly be aware of you own personal security (PERSEC) no names, addresses etc on here.

I'm not sure how much Ph2 training you'd have to do. If you are interseted in becoming a Cdo Engr try following this link, your nearest one is in Bath.

Link

or here link

I would suggest looking around some of the other TA Units to see what really interests you.

For TA Units in Wales try this link

It appears you wish to be in the RE, that's building things then blowing them up. Car Mechanic does not fit in with that role as an RE, however, it does fit in with REME.

If you are doing the RE side in the unit you intend to join then the answer is an absolute NO to missing any training as vehicle mechanic is not a trade in the RE.

If you have intentions of being part of the LAD of your intended unit then you would be cap badged REME, where your civilian skills are relevant.

HOWEVER, unless you have done military service in the British Army as a VM you will NOT get time off of your training.

For people that already have the VM type skills, it just makes PH2 easier, the reason you will have to do it is to familiarise yourself with current British army vehicles and procedures, certainly the latter is something you have no knowledge of.

Having said all of that each unit within the TA have slight variations and interpretations. So the ONLY PLACE you will get the correct answer to this question is from the unit you intend to join. ASK THEM THEY WILL NOT BITE!!!

On another subject, if you did not want sarcastic answers to your questions then this forum is not for you. Even a short browse through the pages will show you that nothing (and no one) is taken seriously here.

Although there may be the odd subject matter expert here they are few and far between. Even if there are, most simply do not post because of the p*ss take factor and the amount of 'keyboard Tyson's on here.

For the most part the answers offered are personal opinions and not finite.

Ask yourself this:

Would you seek medical advice form the people in the waiting room of A&E?

If the answer is yes, then carry on asking specific questions about your intended unit here and please don't be surprised when you get to the unit when your advice is wrong!

If the answer is no I'll see a Doctor thanks! then get your arrse down to your prospective unit and ask the specific questions there!!!

Hence why I told him to talk to army careers as he needs the "basic" info first about which regiment battalion does what, but he seems to think I was being nasty lol. Gawd knows why they told him RE have trade VM.
Having said that I'm a cloud puncher so i'm braindead... :roll:

Clearly a lying turd. NOBODY from Wales actually admits to it. Let alone (apparently) revels in it...
