    Give it a few more years of amalgamations you'll be able to join the Kings and Queens Royal Light Dragoon Guard Hussar Lancer Tank Regiment, or the Household Cavalry.

  7. A few more years? Defence of the Realm being run by Crapita/Group Four by 2016!
     
  8. You might like to check out the covert civilianised branch of the RLC; the AA (always on the front line, a sort of IRF) - they're the fourth emergency service doncha know. ^_~
     
  9. RLC Pioneer or HCAV
     
  10. To the original poster,

    Join the Light Dragoons; they are an excellent organisation and as a Yorkshire lad you will fit in with at least half of the Regiment.

    I would also suggest that Brigade Reconnaissance Regiments probably have a healthier future than the heavy end of the RAC (as much as it pains me to say it)

    Good luck.

    PS - I wouldn'y pay much attention to the majority of advice that you will get on here (less mine clearly which is pertinent, accurate and relevant!)
     
  11. thanks nellie for probably the only serious reply, do you know much about them ?
     
  12. I ******* hate dragons.
     
  13. I am working very closely with them at the moment.

    They have recruiting guys at the ACIOs in Newcastle, Midlesborough and Hull - if you can get yourself to one of those speak directly to a LD bloke, anyone else will just try and poach you for whatever chip-shop mob they belong to!
