I have to admit to taking a bit of a stab in the dark on that one, you will note I have not mentionesd 1 Flt either. The FW are in a bit of a hiatus at the moment with a location v title ding dong going on. For a prospective pilot, key areras of concern are 16x units as the law of averages will see our shiny winged one serving there.

Just surfed through the site http://www.army.mod.uk/aac/index.htm and apart from the unit info, there is a lot there that should be good for the interview.

From stuff we all know, Prince Charles being C in C.... to the stuff we didn't/don't, like the Regimental March. (yes we knew the name but not the tune!)

By the way......

Why is there a fu*kin gap between 3 4 and 9 Regts.... and 1 Regt. Like we ain't worthy of being included....like some TA part time retarded disfigured cousin that no one invites to a wedding. The recent 50th birthday was a real eye opener...The UK units sent a minibus each. It was embarrassing. 1 regt has been on ops since 2004 CONSTANTLY, at one point both squadrons. OOO it makes my blood boil. Its like the English Channel is a thousand miles wide. Still, best student on the last ADCC and Class 1 Groundies means we ain't all retarded.

OOps, sorry about my ranting. I can see now how it was meant to look and I an suitably embaressed. MG, Elmpt Station is near JHQ, think it was an raf camp, now housing bleep regiment and some Gazelles.
