Good luck red, good bunch but beware they are in the middle of mobilizing for Cyprus, not all of them mind but a good few.

And no you won't be able to go, you're too late....:)

Thanks for your reply - I lived in Cyprus for 2 years so not too bothered about missing out on that one lol

Dress smart, treat this is a job interview. Make sure you get a good look around the unit (they should take you on a tour). Find out what roles are available there. Take some cash as you should be invited to the bar afterwards (although it would be a poor showing if you actually had to buy yourself a drink on your first night!). Think of anything that you may want to ask.

And if you don't like the look of them, come and check out 2 Sigs in Dundee ;o)

You serious about dressing smart, and treating it like a job interview? - I thought I was just going for a look around to see what it's like (was just going to wear jeans!!) and I thought I would then apply later and hopefully interview afterwards!

Absolutely serious. Is it not a job? Will you not get paid? Do you want your first impression to be "I can't really be bothered to make an effort"? Your call, but I, and the vast majority of recruits at my TAC, dressed smart for the first evening at least.
Incidently, those who rolled up in old jeans and trainers are no longer bothering to turn up.

Wear something to show off your norks and remember to flirt shamelessly with everyone there. Make sure you let them know that you're either single, or prepared to sleep around even though you're not.

Mention these key words: "****", "Airtight", "*******", "Multiple cocks", "Flute" and "Band Camp".

Hope this helps.

Dress smart, defo. Makes for a very good first impression and it is also the HQ Sqn you are attending. I did and look where I am now.....

Jesus - am I glad you guys are all here.... my hubby was in regular army and he said just go along in jeans and not bother as I'm only see around the place tonight.

Thanks for all the advice....... although unfortunately I'm shit as the flirting thing, so any other hints on that front would be appreciated lol

Oh dear...

Tell as many people as possible that you're willing to open up your Pandora's box or set your hare free in front of the hounds, which is incedentally what you've just done here...

Edited to add - Also, refer to StabTiffy2B's post above, that was full of sound advice.

Dress smart? Have a word with yourselves. If the applicant is going for potential officer, then maybe. If they are going for soldier entry then we should be more concerned that they are the correct age/fitness/intellectual ability for trade than whether they are in a suit or work clothes having come straight to the TAC from the building site.

Or maybe you all have dozens of potential recruits queueing up each week and can afford to do an initial filter based on sartorial issues? No? Thought not.

Sigs have always been a bit odd though, 2 Sigs even more so!
