well im 22 nearly 23 and sent an application form online a few days ago and to be honest im not sure what to join, i want a bit of action on the ground but dont like the idea of getting shot at every 5 mins, or is that just a civillian understanding of infantry? also i like driving but dont really want to be driving all the time, any help would be appreciated

Go to the Army website look at jobs and choose the ones that appeal to you the most, then, come back and ask questions specific to your choices in the relevant forums.

Why do people expect us to do their research and choose their jobs for them?

im not asking you to do any of my research for me, im asking what would be best for me to join since there is people on here with experience, because i like infantry soldier, loggistic support driver, armoured gunner and weapon specialist adviser

How are we supposed to know what would best for you to join?

What do you want to know about the Infantry that isn't covered on the Army website?

If your not sure you want to join up, theres not really much point. Its 4 years mininum service and if its not something you think you would be good at/ not enjoy then its not worth wasting your time.

Because you said you didn't want people doing your research for you yet even though this is something you really wanted you could be bothered to take 5 minutes to actually look at the Army recruitment website.

If you're incapable of even carrying out the most basic research into a job that you supposedly want then I suggest you should forget the Army and try for a Mc Job

listen, i did not come here to get shit off yous, so if yous get your jollys by giving people shit, then go do it to someone else because i cant be arsed, and yes i know its not an option, you have to have played a role in something else before going for that so i did bother to read it!

One of the most essential things a soldier has is a sense of humour. You have to be able to take a bit of piss taking and yes, people will give you shit. It'll happen to you more than once throughout a military career so if you can't take it you may be making the wrong choice.

So you want to join up, but you dont want to be shot at? You like to drive, but you don't want to drive.....sounds like you should be a shiny arse or join the RAF/NAVY.

Because you said you didn't want us to do your research for you:

So I the provided you with some links that you hadn't read:

cheers, thats the information i was looking for

Proving you hadn't bothered to do any real research into the jobs you wanted to do and you'd come here expecting us to give you the information you wanted.

You could've gone to the ACIO and they'd have probably given you a load of info about the trades you're interested in and eligible for. You could've then gone away and looked up on the website the difference between the units and the different roles and trades available.

After you've done all that you should come here asking people for info that isn't available on the net like what they day to day life in a certain role of trade is like.
