Sandhurst!

#1
Can any officer who has completed Sandhurst helpy me.

Basically, what is it like? Who gets admittance? How are you successful? Is it worth it? What is the accomodation like? How much etiquette/officer[ness] is there?

How many people fail and why?

Any information on RMAS please!

Regular officers.

Just a suggestion: if you have a good look through the 'Officers' forum you'll probably find the answers to your questions as they've been asked many times before. :wink:

If you don't have the initiative to find out at least some of all that yourself then I don't think you will bless our armed forces with your intellectual fortitude.

In answer to your question, though, I hear that after extensive tests at sandhurst they have discovered that napalm sticks to babies.

It Wasn't me.

Two words - Grey Man!

However, think you need to work on your English in order to get in. :wink:

From Thread in OTC/ACF Forum:

What do you think of the army cadets????

dunno really, i no if i every saw a cadet rsm i wud spring to attention quick time
Now am I just becoming too cynical in my old age or has he/she/it deliberately written it to appear juvenile. Compare and contrast with punctuation and language in his/her/its post above.

Sovereign, if you are in the ACF and you genuinely want to know more about RMAS why not ask one of your AIs to get you more information, if you are a journalist why not go through recognised channels - I think you have lost the goodwill you would need to get much more from this site.

Sovereign - On the assumption that you're not ACF but genuinely thinking about joining, probably the best thing to do is to go down to your local Recruiting Office and talk to the people there about careers in the Army. If you don't know where it is, there's a list of addresses here: http://www.army.mod.uk/careers/enquire/recruitment_offices_1.html.

abacus - I really hope that quote was being deliberately written to look juvenile because if that's his best written English then he's got trouble ahead whether he goes into the Army or not.

I would like to see any officer who hasn't done sandhurst.......

And as its a college for the training of officers then i guess it is a bit officerish!

It is worth it if you want to become a reg officer - theres no other way!

The accomodation is clean, and will remain that way!!! You get a nice cup of tea and a friendly ranker coming to ensure you slept well during the night and that you are happy to do a bit of a jog and maybe a couple of lectures today, if thats ok sir.

Hmmmmmm, oh in case your wondering - i was being sarcastic about the Tea bit!

Frankly, if this is the standard of spelling, punctutation and grammar on the Street of Shame I'm not at all surprised that they print so much sh!t...however, let's indulge (one of our many) pet journos:

Basically, it's really great.

sovereign said:
Who gets admittance?
You have to take some tests, but if your Dad knows some important people, or your Mum happens to be HM Queen, then it all gets waived.

sovereign said:
How are you successful?
I don't know - how do you breathe unaided?

sovereign said:
Is it worth it?
Was 'what' worth 'what'? (Gosh - these questions are really incisive...)

sovereign said:
What is the accomodation like?
Well, basically a collection of buildings with walls and windows - pretty normal stuff. Again, if your folks are well connected, they have untermensch types called 'Colour Sergeants' who run around after you.

sovereign said:

An awful lot, especially officerness, which is always in short supply, to my mind.

sovereign said:

Only cnuts - and journos need not apply either. Something to do with moral fibre and knowing 'right' from 'wrong'.

Glad to have helped - now fcuk off back to your disgusting little pointless existence. Out.
