What is the best thing about being in the Royal Signals?

Leaving three years later when you realise special forces don't actually scrape the weeds out of the cobbles on camp.

World class facilties and exciting foreign trips are available in spades to the soldiers and officers of the Royal Signals, and this close knit corps takes full advantage.I can now order a beer in seven different languages and get laid in four.

I always found the Corps highly interesting, even though most of the time we were still using Clansman that barely worked but it added to the challenge and using the grey matter more. I found it enjoyable and it helped me a lot in personaly ways as well as setting me up for my new role.

Even though it wasn't really my sort of thing at heart I know I wouldnt go back and change a thing (except the decision to wear Magnums in Wales :x ) my time in the TA Sigs in all honesty really helped reinforce my wish to go regular in the new year.

Sentimental gumf over

Although on the downside means I've already been dicked as the new Platoon Siggie :roll:

Variety, different units different roles, Plenty of sport and if you're keen enough quick promotion. Plus it's a big Corps and they are everywhere.

If you're up for it the option to go 216 Para, 264 SAS or 3 Cdo Bde.

Sets you up with good employment prospects for the future for a life after the Corps.

Over 13 years for me.

You have the filthiest birds ever, one of the disgusting toads allowed my pal to f*ck her in her flat for half an hour after he had filled his trollies with sh*t and p*ss, I stood in the doorway watching, transfixed as his bony arrse tattooed with a Globe and Buster banged away to the rythm of a dripping tap

Sounds to me like you were lucky enough to bump into one of my classier female co workers. During a trip to Belize, as a sprog , I remember seeing a female operater , on her knees in the cinema at A.P.C taking on all comers.

Class, a live show. They only screened films when I was at APC. What year are you referring to baldone?

It was the mid ninties , when 3DIV sent over 202SIGS SQN to do a bit of J.W training.I cant remember the female rad op name though . Strange that but I had spent most of that night drinking in the B.D.F bar

...realising that there is a whole other Infantry 'Corps' in the British Army who occasionally do some comms work but their main effort is being Infantrymen, or even Guardsmen when you put them in close proximity to any parade square.

can someone please tell the Scaleys that we already have Infantry in the British Army and the R Sigs should get on with Comms instead?!

Thanks for the response. I have to confess my tour of Belize was at the back end of 1976 :oops: and if my memory serves me right, we had no females in the Commcen on the night shifts, when us RTG's tended to take over from the day-time "handbags". :)
For any action as you describe, we had to visit the up market local hostelries such as the Big C. Can certainly relate to the drinking though!Happy days.

Edited to add: OP, sorry to drag your question off thread slightly, although I suspect you were expecting plenty of incoming from other cap badges when you posed the question!

Aren't we trained as infantry men first and tradesmen second.If us bleeps/scaleys cant soldier then how can we be expected to provide comms.there have been times when i have been thankfull for extra drills that have been taught to me outside of basic training .
