Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello.

    Im hoping to join REME or RE soon, ive chosen these becouse i would like to have a trade when i leave the army, wich of the trades would be better to chose if i wanted to persue a career as a mechanical engineer?

    Thank you.

  2. Always makes me laugh when people are thinking about what they want to do after they leave the army before they've even joined it.
  3. I agree Skintboy. But, because I'm nice I'll recommend VM to you sirjj. I'm one and It's good. All the trade quals are paralleled with civvy quals for if you want to use 'em.
    But remember whatever trade you end up getting;you are joining THE ARMY as a SOLDIER.
  4. Really? I joined as a civvy and became a soldier :)
  5. heh,heh.....
  6. thank you far the info, it looked like the best option whene i looked.
  7. Work on your written English too mate!
  8. Well im joning as a vehicle mechanic for the same reasons. Go for vehicle mechanic or recovery mechanic maybe, You get alot of engineering qualifications and can go on to get a HND in Automotive.
