I hate my civvie job and was thinking of packing it in to go FTRS as a nurse (general or mental health, I'm dual trained). How likely am I to get a posting preference for the West Midlands (I've got 2 small kids)? Any other insights would be welcome. I'm 45, male, a Major and no I haven't got a fat arse. In fact, I'm pretty fit and do a fair bit of running/pt. I don't mind doing operational tours but, needless to say, I don't want to spend all my children's formative years in Helmand Province.
