I'm interested in joining up as an engineering officer, with a strong leaning towards doing the AACC and ending up in 24 Regiment. I've posted in here rather than the Sappers forum to try and get a view from any RE officers (or anyone else with useful input) about the kind of officer that the engineers attract and how many 'places' as such are available in 24 for commando trained officers. I come from a military background (Navy and RM I'm afraid) and spent 5yrs in the RM cadets while at boarding school (edit). I'm currently finishing a degree in Mining Engineering hence the interest in RE. There's my whole bloody life story (edited for PERSEC) so any advice?
