TA Engineers

Discussion in 'Sappers' started by Cardinal, Jan 17, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Do they have slots for military qualified divers?

    I know a chap ex RAN Clearance diver who is moving to the UK. He is interested in joining the TA. He is an experienced SNCO and diver.

    Do the qualifications and rank transfer to the TA Engineer Regiments?

  2. 131 Cdo RE (V) has a dive team.. Will need to pass AACC first though!
     
  3. Silly Question....isn't the diver course supposed to be harder than AACC and P-Coy?

    Just something I heard, not saying its gospel, im preparing for incoming! Just wanting some clarification, thats all!
     
  4. Yes.. you are right.. The Military Divers Qual.. is V hard.. some say as you indiicate that it is harder than AACC/ P Coy etc..

    This chap only has the problem of passing AACC to join 131 who have a dive unit.. Otherwise, I do not know of any other Sapper TA units who have dive teams..
     
  5. Thanks for the advice, 131 has a Detachment/Troop in London dont they?

  7. Bearing in mind the one in Bath is embryonic, as part of the new Commando Engineer Regiment. They're after experienced chaps as well as recruits.
