    Do officers have trades just like a regular soldier or do you get posted around and pick up a few?

    unless i am very much mistaken, an officers trade is 'officering' (i realise this is not a word)

    So just taking charge and generally being an officer but with no specific trade?

    A Degree from an 'Educational Establishment' is a help - if only to show some level of Academic Discipline - certainly in a 'Trade' such as RE's or REME etc., - and it can do you no harm in the Promotion side either :) - or indeed when you leave the Services,seeking work in civvyland...

    Some Officers prefer to gain their Degree 'outside' RMAS - as that in itself (RMAS) is considered by some to be a 'Degree' in the Military - so it would not do you any harm, to be slanting your Life towards what you join up for - would it ? :)

    'Officering' - ain't just being in charge.... :D

    Thanks for that everyone.
    Do you get posted around to different units and if so how often?
