Cheers for taking the time to reply mate.I think it would be a reasonable assumption that, if the Army has spent hundreds of thousands training you as an Electronics Tech, you'll probably spend most of your time doing stuff associated with that.
Ypu'll still need to maintain your personal standards as a soldier, of course, so there'll be a fair amount of military training and fitness going on as well, but - particularly now when operations are at a very low ebb - it's probably not that likely that you'll be going patrolling anywhere. That's a highly skilled job, as are all ground close combat jobs and chaps who do that sort of stuff for a living tend to be the ones doing it.
No problems with that at all, I'm an Electronic Engineer in the civvy world on the railway at the moment so won't have an issue continuing to do that kind of work, but it's good to hear that I will still have the chance to do a bit of 'green soldiering' I was just concerned that I'd be sat in a workshop or whatever all the time and that is it.
Thanks for the distinction with the patrolling also, wasn't aware how specialist it was, I don't have any family history with the military other than my great grandad so I'm not as clued up as some will be going in!
