Hi all,
Switched my application to reserves and just waiting for a deferral to be lifted

living in Birmingham I’m spoilt for choice but can’t really contact them until my application has sorted.

I can only find out basic information from the army website so can anyone point me in the direction of some more information cause atm I’m looking at 4merc,8rifles, RMonsRE(M), RLC and the royal signals but can’t pinpoint what trades are there apart from the RMonsRE(M)

Thank you

I can't really help other than to suggest that you use the abbreviation RMonsRE or RMonsRE(M) instead of RMRE. Had you not repeated the term, I would have assumed that you had mistyped REME.

Royal Signals are currently changing the trades around a bit, but are well worth a look. Give the squadron a shout and they'll be happy to talk to you.

ill definitely take a look, cause there’s a few trades that do look pretty ace.

do you mean they’re adding/taking away trades or just “streamlining”?

Try 159 Regiment RLC:


They have Driver, Logistic Supply Specialist and Chef trades, they probably have Communications Specialists too.

It is - there are some quite specific challenges to logistic communications - distance being one of them!

I tried to phone one of the units and they said pretty much no until my application is sorted

No to a visit and a chat with the lads/ladettes until you’re fully through the application process? Not doubting your word but that is pretty unusual. Most units are even happy for you to start attending drill nights while your application is still in progress, they want to keep you keen.

If you are interested in communications, then the Royal corps of signals are THE specialists, and the biggest corps in the army, with many trades, from electricians to electronic warfare, with everything in between. Go on their web site, all will be explained in detail. Good luck with what ever you choose.

Not the biggest, that's the loggies.

Full update/reconfigure to better match actual roles.

Very worthwhile speaking to them, they are a good bunch.

There is also of course "MoD Kingstanding", if you're feeling ambitious. You can, in theory, give them a call on 0800 028 5650.
