Hi there, was directed to this site by someone I knew from another forum, when I asked him a load of (probably idiotic) questions in regards to an interest in the Forces. Right then, here goes... I've always had a large (read "fanatical") interest in military history, and this led to considering - on and off - some sort of Forces career. I say "on and off" because I also wanted to study the subject and then make some sort of career from that too. The result was a constant see-sawing of the idea of whether or not I wanted to join - and if yes, what would I do, what sort of tenure would I be looking at, etc. etc. Then, recently, with uni life fast approaching, I put more thought into it, and contacted the friend I mentioned in the beginning, and he did a good job in outlining the options available (if you're reading this, sorry, I haven't a clue who you are on here ), which were - basically - regular Army, TA, or - which seemed like the more suitable option - UOTC. I'm hopefully going to study IntPol & Military History at Aberystwyth (having read the forums for some time before signing up, I'm not sure if I should've said that or not ) and through some research I found that there was a unit there. However, I couldn't find much info on the unit itself. I guess I'm looking to find out about the overall goings-on in UOTC, as well as things like what goes on at the weekly (is it weekly?) meetings, and so on. Apologies for any dodgy spelling, or the impression that I'm a clueless arse: The former can be attributed to me being tired, but I have no excuses for the latter, I'm afraid Any help that can be offered, though, would be greatly appreciated.
