Where is everybody?

#1
And what are they all doing?

Basically, over the next few months I will be getting myself on to an attachment with the Royal Signals and just wanted to get an idea of where everyone is and what they are doing?

Any recommendations on the best unit to try and get a CURRENT attachment with. e.g. Even if YOUR unit is the best, if you are in Wales all year, in the rain, digging holes then I don't think I'd enjoy that too much, so I'll leave that sort of thing, at least until I'm getting paid for it.

Thanks in advance for all your help and obviously all your corrections on my spelling and grammar!

Stay away from:

14 sigs (wales)
101 log bde (Aldershot)
7 sigs (Germany)

in my opinion they are all crap units

if you can get to an armoured BDE preferably Germany (hard work but great social life)

Failing that get to a NATO post Slipper city!

Stand by for Sandhurst then.


In all seriousness - firstly, this Corps doesn't do a huge amount of digging in the rain, but if that is what your Unit is doing, then that is what you do; not only that, but you set an example while you are doing it.
Secondly, if you don't think you'll enjoy digging in the rain, give a big think to what you plan to do for a year come September. If RMAS hasn't changed, you can expect the second term to be the main exercise focus - for you this will be January to March :muhaha:

What are you now mbwest, cadets or OTC or summat? If you have a non-affinity to digging holes then perhaps the Army isn't your most suited occupation! Joking aside, I don't know any Signals units whose role it is to dig holes in Wales all year round. It's good to have high hopes for your attachment but try not to dismiss mere field army units in favour of some highly-esteemed underwater, knife-fighting, special "hacking into the pentagon" cyberwarrior unit. (hang on...that sounds like a great posting!)

If you want to know where every unit is then go to http://www.army.mod.uk/royalsignals/organisation/index.html and check it out.

Go to Germany. Relieve boredom and frustration by drinking, fighting and visiting the gentleman's clubs.

That will give you the true picture of life in Garrison (at least from the OR's perspective)!

P.S. I f*ckin loved it in Germany..no duff!

Oh wow,
Talk about taking things too seriously, should I stand to attention when I post on here too?
For Gods sake -ooops blasphemy, apologies in advance!! - I just want something relatively fun and a chance to meet and talk to the people in the Corps and find out what it's all about!
Oh and I’ll bear in mind next time I’m ordered to dig a big hole to set an example while I do so.
I understand there are ups and downs and I’m not expecting some underwater knife fighting around the Pentagon!
I would however like to use this time wisely and hopefully enjoy myself a bit at the same time, so I am looking for a posting that is relatively interesting and, god forbid, enjoyable.
The Army can't be that bland and boring or surely you wouldn't all still be there.

Thanks for the link!!

it most likely wont be too exciting as its a job after all. if you go out to germany you will get the lads in the garages pushing around brooms and fixing armour, the benifit being that after work they will not all shoot straight home and will more likely socialise somewhere. in uk everyone iv seen hides in thier rooms or shoots off somewhere.

i may be biased cos i loved germany but hey thats my advice.

Just as well, cos it's a two year posting and the current bloke has only just gone there.

To be honest I came on here looking for some friendly helpful advice, if people don't want to help then fair enough.
E-Layer, if you read my post then you will see I thanked one member for the link, I fully understand that a pip or two doesn't make me God and, in reality, the experience counts for far more - but don't expect me to be grateful for people simply just posting bone comments. Although thanks for your highly intelligent comments!

In regards to "rubbing up old sweats the wrong way", to be honest if someone wants to be an ******** then I couldn't really care if their an old sweat or a bloody new sweat and I can assure you that I’ve dealt with far worse that a Jerrycan on the head and I certainly will not be screaming to any Squadron Commanders.

In regards to the job I will be doing, I fully understand that there is plenty of hard work and plenty of ups and downs. When I spoke about digging holes in Wales, that was simply an extreme example. I do not think that the Signals spend very much of their time actually doing this.
Again, I came here for some helpful friendly advice and if you’re not willing to give it then please simply ignore this thread.

From the feedback between the shit, it seems that Germany would be the best place to be, so I’ll have a look around and see what it is all about.
Thanks to all those that did actually provide some helpful input.

Chill, Winston. You need to be able to take some banter/abuse in this game. Play along and read between the lines before throwing your teddy in the corner. You do a bit of recce action, then you post, then you get shot down by the big boys, then you gain acceptance. Like any other exclusive club. If you take it all too seriously then you are destioned for a life of being outraged!

You still haven't (I think) said what you are now e.g. underwater knife fighting cadet.
