AND the same bloke that asked if you could take your own body armour on Ops!shortfuse said:Aren't you the same "bloke" who asked if he could do the AACC from the R. Anglians ..... if you just want lots of badges and the potential to wear a funny hat, joing the fucking scouts.
If you want to be mocked by the rest of the army, including the AGC and drowned in bullshit, then the artillery is probably the mob for you
Must have changed since I was in then, because I was down to do it but got sent to MCTC for a little holiday insteadchocolate_frog said:You wont be allowed to do the sniper course with the RA. You could get some sniping in with one of the specialist units in the RA, but you would have to be good enough to volunteer and then good enough to pass the selection and then be lucky enough to be trained.
Snipers are really only found in the Inf, RM and RAF Regt. You could get some sniping in with the RE or RLC, but only in EOD roles so not steally eyed dealer of death type stuff.
If you are confused as to what you want to be, just say so and ask a batch of questions in a oner. Not dribble out questions or people will think you are a throbber.
