hello there! i'm an english/welsh bloke raised in switzerland and like the idea of joining the british army (after the EC that is! i live in Basel! HUZZAH), Royal Engineers to be precise (sorry if it's the wrong forum). now, all my qualifications are swiss, basically i went straight into an apprenticeship as a draughtsman after public school with 17 and completed it august 06. (would love to learn a new trade or a couple, of course. the more qualifications and licenses the better) i reckon i have my head screwed on the right way to take on officer training. but do i have to get my A levels first or something? i'm fairly bright but sightly impatient and would prefer to get going as soon as i finished travelling and saw my mates in Basel during the EC. any idea lads?
