OK, some of you have probably noticed me asking lots of questions on some of the forums for about 6 months now. Or more likely I've blended in with the masses of other hopefuls/time-wasters wanting advice. Anyway I'm serious about this, I did come a long way for the chance to get into the British Army. So I've decided to go for Infantry for a lot of reasons. Now I have to decide which regiment I want to join, as the recruiters want a firm decision for the Interview I have next month. I'm somewhat stuck here, being Australian (boo, hiss, etc) I have no local regiment. Anyway Foot Guards sounds a bit tedious because of the public duties part (cool uniforms though), and as I've said before the Scottish Regiment(s) probably isn't the best choice because I can't understand a thing most Scottish people are saying. No offence or anything. Now, I've been thinking about the Royal Irish Regiment, although I don't really know what they do. I understand they're air mobile but their role rotates or something to that effect? Any info from someone who knows would be greatly appreciated. My recruiting office is plastered with Rifles recruiting posters so I guess that would be a logical choice but I'd like to know all my options instead of diving in head-first. I'd also thought that I may have been barred from the Parachute Regiment because of a small inner ear problem but it turns out this may not be the case (I probably should have researched things a little better). However I am a bit worried that, assuming I did actually make it that far, I'd go through all this trouble only to wreck my leg attempting P Coy and have to go home before I'd even finished training (I understand that happens a bit). In addition my fitness isn't exactly fantastic, and while I have absolutely no doubt I can get myself up to scratch for ADSC if I push myself enough, it sounds like P Coy demands even more from you and I don't know if I'd be up to standard. So I guess that brings me to my next question: If I don't make the right call, how hard is it to transfer between Regiments? And how long would I be expected to stay put before I could ask for a transfer? In short I have no doubt that I want to be in the Army but where exactly I want to be in the Army is less certain. Thanks in advance for any information. And could the trolls amongst us please resist the temptation to turn this into an inter-regiment slagfest. Please.
