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. Hey,

    Basically, I'm currently weighing up the options available to me regarding what to do with my life. I had for a long time wanted to join the REME as an officer, but now in my second year of a masters in engineering I really can't muster up any enthusiasm for a career in a subject this boring.

    As such, i was wondering what a career in the RMP is actually like? Is it interesting? Rewarding? Enjoyable?

    After reading the glossy brochure selling me a career with pretty pictures of silhouetted tanks, cammo-creamed troops stood in front of their transport, and the occasional quote about how shiny and brilliant the army is, I still don't feel too clued up.

    Cheers for any advice.
  2. You'll hear plenty of this...

    wah wah, wah wah, wah wah!
  3. Go see your Univ Liaison Officer and ask for a visit to a Unit....
  4. Like everything else, you can make it anything you want it to be.
