  1. Hi all,

    I have recently applied to rejoin the Army. I've been out for 6 years and my trade as Electronic Tech in the REME is full so I have been offered the opportunity to retrain as an Ammunition Technician in the RLC.
    So anyway before I sign on the dotted line again could somebody answer a few questions for me please.
    Firstly the course starting dates for this year, (gives me a rough idea of how long I'm likely to be at a holding unit in Deepcut)
    Trying to work out finances so the grade of accommodation at Kineton, is it PAYD etc any info appreciated.
    What are the range of postings like after completion of training ?
    What exactly will I be doing from day to day at my first unit ? may seem like a silly question but lets face it the job descriptions are allways b..s...t
    Am I correct that pay band is lower until Sgt ?
    Any sensible replies appreciated.....thanks
