Transfer (possibly)

#1
I attended a trade fair the other week in Germany, where I got the usual
spiel about the Int Corps from the recruiters.

I'm still thinking about transferring or not, I'm R. Signals at the moment.
Just wondering if I can get the honest opinion from the horse's mouth.

Looking to go Op MI.

:lol:

Without going into 'whinging scaley' mode, I'd definitely say go for it. I'm just sick of my
job. Great fun and social life, though! What trade are you going for?

I spent my first 11 as a scaley and the next 11 as a happy slime. Can thoroughly recommend the change. What rank and trade are you at the moment?

A colleague of mine transferred about 4 years ago - has not looked back. Having said that, I know of plenty of people who have transferred, only to find out the grass wasn't that much greener....

All I can suggest is a chat with RCMO, see if you can speak to someone who's already doing the job you want to go to, and make your decision based on fact, not on feeling.

Davros is going in as GODS TRADE......Spec Op of course!

Davros hows the sun tan coming along?
Surely you are having a laugh?
The best thing about spec ops is watching them mince into their air conditioned, windowless set rooms wearing para / SAS smocks(they're all hats), Lowa boots and a gay smile. Feckin honchos.

Within the J2/G2 community, we prefer to call them parasites. I understand that the Royal Corps of Signals guys feel the same - how many EOD posts did they take?

I bet you've never polished your Lowas either.

Had a chat with a couple of Int guys, and they said it was likely that when (not if anymore) I rebadged, I'd go
straight onto my A2. Does this seem likely?

Full screw.

seems likely then, in my humble opinion. depending on seniority they might stick you straight through the lot A3 A2 A1, its been done before with transferees being in trade training for a year, qualified up to Sgt without seeing a unit...

unless you are saying they are skipping A3 and putting you on A2, in which case i couldnt comment. been a long time since i did all that and it has changed a lot in recent years, so couldnt comment on the likelihood.

Good God Man! He's not having a laugh - He's firmly on CRACK!

No, I'm potentially going IS Engr - hey I'm a geek and I admit it!

As for my sun tan.. Well I'd rather be polishing Warrior track pads with my shorn scrotum than doing this job. The sun doesn't penetrate my air conditioned box and morale has been banned. :lol: 8) Other than that, it's just peachy!

Haha! No mate, it's ok.. long hours, but good crew.. still settling in a bit, but getting there.


Anyway - back on topic! As for going on A3, A2, A1 - haven't heard of someoe doing that before, but the full screws that xfered on my squad were on their A2 within about 6 months, than A1 about the same again.
