Being remoted with a big box of fresh rations, a TV on the det and sunbathing away from the morale holocaust happening down at command.

Knowing that only the brightest and most intelligent make it into "Gods own Corps" after all where else can you discuss sunspot activity and Fresnel zones to the commander whilst blaming the other end (non Corps)for the lack of comms :1:

That's a bit like asking "What's the best thing about having syph/plague etc etc"

edited to add "I'll get my coat.............Taxi!"

Getting paid the same as the rest of the British Army as we are all nearly on high pay band. Minus the bountys given to pilots/infantry and marines of course.

Nice capbadge? Sort of like Eric Morecambe before he piled on the pounds.

Er...and one of the most prestigous Corps messes in the Army. When I was there last I got a single room. Luxury indeed.[/sarcasm] :twisted:

Good experience, really sorts you for a good civilian career, I know plenty of ex-regular soldiers with good jobs. Just don't join the TA version its the poorest part of the TA, as you need to gain a commission to be taken seriously (not gaining one is a major plus part of the regular variety)

Decent(ish) money, opportunity to work with not bad kit. Good sporting opportunies (if you can be bothered to get off your arrse) and if you are lucky make some lifelong mates.
