Hi, appretnly if "Not recomended for infantry" is written on any of your documents you cant go (infantry obviously) but also Household Cavalry and other FR regiments in RAC is this true at all?

No, it's an initiative test. The AFCO man will give you extra marks if you burst into the office and demand to be upgraded to ParaCommando.

And when a Corps becomes a Regt you can indeed join the RLC. But until then speak to UKTAP as he knows all about this Army lark by the sounds of it.

My recruiter,didn't have a problem with me being a tankie (MBT) or a gunner, so I can't see myself ending up in RLC, but if I was to be given the not recommended for Infantry label, would that stop me being in the Household Cavalry or Recce tank crewman?

Have you asked your recruiter?

You need to ask why. If its physical (??) then this may make a difference. If its something else then God knows. Im not a fan of the RLC at the best of times even though im in it(!!) but ill always stand up for it from anyone else but then you will learn to do that whatever your in. But you could join the RLC, get some sort of trade, then go Cdo or Para training and serve in a semi Inf way. Or you could sit in a metal box with a big gun only to be told in 2 years time your not needed as tanks are old fashioned.
But to be fair, the Not Being Able To Serve in Inf thing, you need to confirm why.

My recruiter didn't think I would get along with other infantry soldiers, sins of my perants sending me to a second rate private school. He basically thought I was too posh, although he never said it directly.

ahhh, so in other words "sensitive". Yeah, join the RLC.

I would have had you down as being state educated so I wouldn't think that would be an issue......

Full credit to you for hiding that fact with shite spelling and grammar.

You're obviously a credit to your family and school.

What school was it? I'm thinking of sending my grandkids privately but I don't want to spend all that money to find out they can't spell basic words at the end of it. Appretnly (sic) their perents (sic) think spending money should at least teach them how to use apostrophes.

Yeah I get it, I'm not the best at spelling and grammar but I still managed to scrape a C out of GCSE English so it's not all bad.
