Preference Of Posting

#1
thought that we needed a new thread in the forum so scratched me thick heed & came up with this.

has ANYONE ever got first choice on a preference of posting sheet or is it just me :?: :?:

i remember putting 35 engr regt, previous unit, as first choice after passing my a2, sat in the little cinema bit at brompton awaiting being told where we were going................................38 berlin fd sqn..........i did not complain mind you.

but its been like that for the past 20 years for me, even in this post i am in now (op cygnet) raf camp, i never asked for it i had asked to go back to ripon when i was told that 4+ years was a bit too long in antrim, cnuts.

anyone lese suffered similar experiences :?: :?:

but looking back now I'm glad or I would never would have got to abuse chinney, ronnie or franky!!

Have only got where I wanted once. On one of my Preference of Posting forms I put down 1) Anywhere in Germany 2) Anywhere in NI 3) Tidworth...

They sent me to Ripon. Would have be bad enough if Ripon was an unpopular posting but half the Corps are hanging out to get up there so I can only conclude that Manning and Records really are taking the pish!

nah............. i have to agree that someone in glasgow must be having a feckin right "giraffe" with some of the postings they dish out to lads

I remember one of our clerks with the nickname of flash putting in a preference for anywhere but hohne but the amusing thing was when his posting came through he got posted literally the block opposite to 7ABSS!! Haha couldnt have happened to a nicer mong!!

Many moons a go when i had completed my A2 i fancied try EOD for a change, i spoke to a bloke in the know who directed me to the Staff Assistant at 33, great he said he would take me as they needed Sparkies, i went and spoke to the Adj, he wrote on his note pad Sparkysapper 33and said he would square it away with records and to put it on my pref posting form, the end of course comes and we wait with baited breath to find out our fate, i need not worry mine was sorted, or so i thought, i got 33, not the Regt, i got 33 Indep Fd Sqn.

I was never sure of who had jiffed me, records or the Adj who probably couldn't remember which 33 i wanted?

I supposed i can't complain i had a brilliant tour all 3 1/2 years of it.

I think everyone would agree that although everyone at manning and records is a sick evil mong that can't post anyone where they want to be, that they did enjoy where they were posted to by mistake, beacuse they met some awesome blokes and had a great time!

have to agree with you there, cause i ended up at tidworth, which is a sh1t-hole, but 8 fd sqn was quality & the majority of the lads were toppers :D
