I'm wanting to join the army, and after chatting with my brother (he's an infantryman in the Grenadier Guards) I think I'm convinced I'd rather take up some sort of trade. I was reading through the different jobs on the armyjobs website, and the one that really caught my eye was Armourer. A few questions. 1) What kind of jobs can lead on from being an armourer after the army? 2) If you are deployed into a warzone, how close to the frontline are you? Do you stay at the back and maintain weapons, or are you up in the thick of it untill you're needed? I'm really interested in this part of the army, I love weapons and the idea of modifying and maintaining them for a job is very appealing.
