Transferring...

#1
Hi guys

I want to transfer regiment to the RMPs, and thought I'd run it past you all first to get your opinion on whether or not I'll be allowed, and how long it will take.

Im currently in phase 2 trainin at Bovington, and not back there until Tuesday. I'm going to speak to the troop sergeant when I get back.

What do you think my chances of getting the transfer are like?

My reasons are I'm bored, and right now dont think this is what I want to do. It sounds stupid as well, but I'm quite intelligent (definately should have gone college and joined as an officer later..) and I dont think this job is mentallychallenging enough?

Cheers

Why don't you finish your training, and get a bit of experience in the army before you think about transferring?


What trade are you training for now?

Why didn't you apply for RMP to start with then?

I don't think you'd regret getting a bit of time in service before trying to transfer. Maturity and experience are good things to have as a policeman (both civilian and military).

You say you're reasonably intelligent then claim you want to join the Monkeys? Going civvy bill won't be helped by joinng the RMP. Finish your training, and see how it goes for 6 months. If you think that armour isn't for you then try something like Int, as it's a good step towards civvy bill. (PS I'm not nor never have been Int Corps but do work in a J2 environment)

8O 8O you want to do what :evil:

Unless you are good at creating your own evidence against people then don't do it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even a dixie basher is higher in my esteem than a f****ing monkey :evil:

Sorry, did I say that I don't like them :?:

Jesus - I don't know who I feel for most; the Tankies or the Monkeys.

And as for this notion of being an officer..?? Ha Ha Ha..!!

Nothing personal, you understand..??

Lots of people think joining RMP will help them get in the civvy bill.


WRONG!!!!!


Stay as a Tankie........you joined the army to be in the army..........not direct traffic with a crimson beret on.



wise up!

So you are at bovvy on Phase 2 and you think its not challenging ?Well get to your unit first
then decide .You have no idea what the job is about .When you get to your regiment if you are
as clever as you think you are you will get noticed . Do you think that all officers are switched on ?
You my young TPR have a lot to learn about the army .As for RMP well not a chance mate do you
really think your Troop staff will let you go to another corp just like that . Or maybe they would love to
palm you off because you are full of it .

3 years in regiment then think about it, thats time to learn the ropes in the Army, enjoy it or get bored of it.

No, but got literally fitted up by their SIB barstuards :x

Basically, I was Court Marshalled for an offence that I did not commit. The SIB Sgt Major 'interviewed' me with his toy sgt. At the DCM, when challenged, denied that he had even been in the same building :roll: I described the office that it took place in. Two days later the whole DCM convenes in said office. Loh and behold, it's totally changed :x They even threatened to 'inspect' to' my girlfriend's flat and 'talk' to her - she is German and this was in Germany, in a German flat, not military . On being asked, again they denied all knowledge and stated that they didn't have the powers to do such a thing :x :x

Btw, this is just one example

Davey Boy, you either have the qualities, latent or otherwise, to be a copper. Whatever arm you join, it may well develop them. Going RMP? Some forces like RMP, others don't have an opinion. RMP on your application may help you get your PIRT assessment but then you go into a big melting pot with everyone else, and sink or swim. Pick up the right attitudes in RMP, and you should swim. Plenty of others from other branches also display the qualities Civ Plod are looking to develop.
You need to look closely at your reasons for jumping ship. All trades have their boring aspects-theft of a pedal cycle, anyone?

I heartily agree with Northern Monkey.

I know lots of ex-HM Forces in the police service, but only two of them are ex-military police. Both nice people, very competent etc. The rest come from other parts of the forces, with quite a lot of infantry, sigs, engineers and int people. I also worked recently with two ex-tankies so a career driving a Challenger about certainly doesn't bar you from a career in the Old Bill one day.

So if you want to go to the RMP because you want to be a military policeman then fine, but don't use the civilian police angle as an excuse because, trust me, it just doesn't work like that.

V!

To be fair mate, if you tell your troop staff your joining the RMPs because you want to be a military policeman, then they'll prob be a lot more receptive to helping you transfer than if you said you want to do it to help get in the civy bill.

or if you tell him you want to leave because his corps and his course is boring.

Some of the best RMPs are guys who have been in other corps and transfered in. They have a braoder understanding of the army which some guys who join direct into RMP dont get.
