So what do you do now

#1
Having left the corps four years ago, I was just wondering what other ex-sappers are doing on the dark side?

I've joined the police now and I've recently qualified as a firearms officer. (god help us!)

So I'd be interested to hear what others are doing? and what their experiences, of civi street are?





And if your still serving..... good luck. ;0)

i always thought that ex forces were not allowed on the firearms side of life as we are taught to shot to kill whereas "filth" 8O 8O are not, is this not the case :?: :?:

To be honest, they like ex-squaddies (espeacially ones that know how to make things go bang :p ) but they dont like to admit it.
guns are guns at the end of the and if they dont have to be worried about your weapon handling or tactics, the it's one less thing for them to teach you

Left a class 2 DDraughtsman. Now (10 years on) still draughting but not full time a I spend most of the time running projects from the structural/civil side of things, just started Shrewsbury Towns new stadium, I just like to say to the instructors who recommended that I didn't go back to do my class 1 (& despite the recommendation from Antrim & Lisburn that I should).
[marq=left]What the f*ck do you know.[/marq]
And to any DD about to leave go for the structural side & not architecture (their all oxygen stealers) & the pays slightly better.
I'm not bitter or twisted honest!! Angry maybe just ask the contracts manager at British Gypsum, Sherburn site, he may have permanent tintanus. Sorry.

Left in 1997 to join the Police and have avoided firearms( this being mainly due to the fact that I was one of the worst shots in the Corps :D )
