when you pass out as a guardsman

all depends on the regiment you join.
the welsh and the irish dont have incremental companys so if you joined them no you wouldnt take part in ceremonial dutys for a while
the grens, coldstream an scots all have to do 6 months minimum before joining their battallions.

however there are rumours going round my battallion that the irish are making an incremental company

anyways guards easy, 2 hours work, 22 hours sleep an free scoff, gotta love it ;)

there are far too many people joining the guards that don't have a clue what it involves. There was this kid at my recruiting office going to selection that didn't even know the guards did ceremonial duties. Bloody moron.
Fcuk wearing all that gear though. I'd rather not look like a retard, lmao.

It's not just stuck to the guards.
Far too many mongs join with a vision of rainbows, butterflies, shits and giggles, and fall to pieces upon realising the realities.
I've meet some tossers who've cracked on in joining the infantry and had a cry and a pissy fit when they realise their primary purpose is to engage the enemy ie shoot the bastards. The mind boggles 8O
