Whats The Crack With Gettin Posted To 11 EOD?

#1
I put in a triple p a few months ago and got asked did i wanna go to 11 eod, which i was told were based all over, chester, edingbrugh etc etc... today my rcmo, gives me an update to say my security clearance has passed, and then fones up glsagow to tell them i'm ready to move, he asks them were i'll be posted and they say that all pte drivers are posted into didcot? is this the case? i thought i would be sent out to edngbrugh, chester, germany or one of them, dont really wanna be at didcot for 4 yrs.

ISTR that there is only one Private soldier in the entire regiment and that is a Private driver at Didcot, not much wiggle room if you want posting elsewhere :D
 
#3
ISTR????what does that mean. also do you know what the job intails as a pte down at didcot? and also what do u mean not much wiggle room if i wanted postin elsewere. i think you mean that the EOD units such as chester etc etc...... are at full strengh and dont need anyone. could it be possible someone is comin to the end of there postin. I was under the impression (from glasgow) that i would go todidcot to my admin, trainin etc etc..... then off to one of the EOD units

What secret? If you can't understand his post I would humbly sugest that you consider a posting to a transport squadron somewhere quiet :D

we'll see when there gettin thrashed.
Incoming...begin.

Oh ok, rather than give you a hard time for sayng something dumb, a word of advice. Ring the 11 EOD RCMO and ask him for the ground truth. Easy eh ?

ISTR - i seem to recall, wasn't hard was, i dont understand why not understanding internet slang, you would say i should "go to a quiet transport squadron"

Okay, so you didn't understand 'ISTR', but what part of "there is only one Private soldier in the entire regiment and that is a Private driver at Didcot, not much wiggle room if you want posting elsewhere" did you not manage to understand?

MY 2ND POST,

ISTR????what does that mean. (dnt see wot the problem askin to translate internet slang is) also do you know what the job intails as a pte down at didcot? (i.e. white fleet? green fleet? 4 tonne daf etc etc)and also what do u mean not much wiggle room if i wanted postin elsewere. i think you mean that the EOD units such as chester etc etc...... are at full strengh and dont need anyone.(was just askin you to confirm that i was correct on thinkin this) could it be possible someone is comin to the end of there postin. I was under the impression (from glasgow) that i would go todidcot to my admin, trainin etc etc..... then off to one of the EOD units

You asked for advice, I gave you it despite some arrse comment from you about thrashing ATs - or perhaps you meant that to be a joke ? "Just a bunch of keyboard warriors" - you are now being a bit of a knob. Here is some more advice ref your move to 11 EOD (and no I am not a bomb doctor) - go there with this attitude and you will have a sh*t time.

I'll try again - if you are truly interested in what your next job will be in 11 EOD, as I said call the RCMO in 11 EOD or talk to your current one to get the info for you. Its called the mature, sensible approach and it part of the RCMO's remit.

Oh, the other thing is, if you don't understand the ARRSE world, don't play here. Anyone is liable for a slagging, especially if they come out with bone retorts like you have.

the first bit of advise you gave me -

What secret? If you can't understand his post I would humbly sugest that you consider a posting to a transport squadron somewhere quiet


is that really a MATURE AND SENSIBLE APPROACH to someone who has asked for advice?

That was me..... and my point was that someone had already given you all the advice you asked for..... ie that the only private soldier in the Regiment was a driver at JSEODOC Didcot. That being the case, and you being a private, you would find yourself posted to Didcot as there was no other post for a private anywhere else unless you were promoted.

My point was that you didn't seem very bright, being unable to read plain text, and a posting somewhere quiet was probably your best bet to 'shine'.

I take it all back...... you haven't got a hope of 'shining'.... anywhere.
