I didn't mention I was a re-enlister, because I was told to be stum about it. I left due to medical reasons, which have now been sorted. I've been accepted back into my original Corp, but having spoken with a few serving lads I met a few year back, I've been slightly put off. I'm not in the best position, because I start basic on Sept 1st, but I'm now wanting to transfer to REME.
Would I need to put in a new request to re-enlist with REME, like I had to do with my original Corp, even though I due to start basic soon? Heck, is it even possible for me to change cap badges at this stage?
Too many variables. For some trades, there is no requirement to be interviewed by a Corps representative prior to Ph 1 but for others there is. Whatever happens, if you apply to transfer during Ph 1 you will be interviewed by a Corps representative to assess your suitability and motivation and there is no guarantee they will accept you. Your choice at the end of the day and depends how quickly you want to be in. If you're that worried about it you're probably better off sorting it all out with your AFCO before you start.
