Hey, brand new to the forum! Basically as of yesterday I can start my application for junior entry at Harrogate, now I've always wanted to join the infantry. Of course, to join through junior entry your parents must consent, here's the problem; my mother is absolutely against me joining. She's decided if I join I have to get a trade, I'm open to this but I can't see any trades which I can see myself doing for 12 years. Ive been looking at electrician in the Royal Engineers but I've never had a major interest in being an electrician. So there's my problem; I don't want to go to sixth form and don't feel I could wait until I'm 18. Any help? What are interesting trades, what is day to day like in the infantry? I'd also be open to the armoured corps.
