  1. Hi I'm new to all the forum thing.
    i have just started to apply for the army and just finished my barb test.
    I'm going for my Maths and English test tomorrow.

    I'm really interested in joining the signals but i was just wondering
    whats the difference between the communications system operator and the communications system engineer?

    Thanks James

  4. Do the operators get to go on patrols with infantry etc?
     
  5. Does your mum take it up the wrong'en?
    Probably depends on his girth/length.

    Corps is the same, you may well do with some units be Tac Sig or deploy with BRF.
    There are many different scenarios and options for all trades as well as numerous chances to support other elements within the military.
    Ask again after training.

    P.S She did with me.
     
  6. Operator----Engineer.

    Break it---- non 252- fix it.
    Break it---- non 252- fix it.
    break it---- 252-fix it. PM & N. Have a chat with the OC, (No coffee. no chair, but a little bit of drill).
     
  7. Why do people always ask this when looking to join a Corps?

    Mate if you want to go on patrol with the Infantry, then just join the Infantry.
     
  8. Because they want to go on a patrol but not just everyday! Gives some people peace of mind that they're nails or something. :)
