Good luck, UK Gen. Don't forget to enjoy yourself.

Don't listen to qman, UK Gen. A test of a man's character is to identify the value in anything. Do to ATR(P) and take it for what it is; a good crack.

Yeah, ignore Qman, we do!. Enjoy your time there but when you realise your mistake at being a AT, then transfer to the PetOp trade. You know it makes sense! :wink:

Listen UK Gen -do yourself a favour and re-badge to RE or something. The Army lied to you when it said it could give transferable skillsets, it's what they do - it's called "recruitment". Unless you want to spend the rest of your life defusing UXO/ IED's or w*anking into peoples soup then the RLC doesn't really offer that much (don't start with the rhetorical bollox about driving licences -my wife can drive so it doesn't count). DO NOT become a Pet Op 1. You won't get a course for ages and ages and ages, and 2. The trade is being sold down the river and will very shortly become a Spec Qual and all you do is get dicked to do trog shit anyway. The Army can offer you some good oppurtunities and experiences it's just they are few and far between in the RLC and the rest of the Army hate us too!

Ignore qman.

He was abused as a recruit.

Yes feeling fine thanks. (?)

Just had visions of the scene in 'Once were soldiers' where chirpy young soldier wishes Sergeant Major 'Good Morning'. . . . oh the synicism of it all.

The answers to your pshycobabble exams is 'red'........see you on the supplier course!

Best of luck fella hope you get what you want!

Good luck at Kineton mate, be confident!

Remember it's an advisory board not a Pass/Fail.

I take it from your stoney silence that you failed and you were 'advised' to attend the supplier/ driver course. Never mind son (does anyone know if they still show the '7BD' video at Slackdown).

As much as it pains me to say it, I agree with qman's cynicism (even if he is as gay as christmas).
