Evening all,

My husband is struggling between RLC driver/comms and household cav. He’s 32 and a civvie HGV class 1 driver currently and wanting to rejoin. Everyone has advised him against infantry due to his age but just wondered what people’s opinions are or experiences of the job roles please?

Many thanks

We'll tell him Luv
 
At 32 he doesn't want to be competing with 18 year olds running around. RLC will get him back in and if he is still adventurous he can apply for moves to places that will let him run around for a few years.
 
He should set his standards higher, apply for selection for Them (he will understand) or the Paras and failing that, the creme de la creme of the finest fighting force in NATO, the RAF Regiment.
Let us know which he chooses so we can encourage him throughout his endeavours...

Why are you asking for him?
Is he incapable of making his own mind up on what he wants to do?

By rejoin, I'm assuming he has previously served, so why not ask him rather than here?

As an older re-joiner, I'd advise the RLC route. The Household Cav training is long, particularly the Riding School aspect, and both HCMR and HCR are rather insular units. I'd also consider promotion, which over there I view as very slow there compared to the large majority of other cap badges I've had the opportunity to work with.

RLC Comm Spec - varied, with solid transferrable skills. Keep us updated!
