Hiya All, I'm a 28 year old unfit bloke from Newcastle. I have always wanted to join the Army or TA but up to now have been too lazy to get off my ass and get it sorted. But I've decided enough is enough and I want to get my life on track and apply. However, I am seriously unfit! I am planning on joining my local BMF to help get fighting fit. When I am fit enough I'd like to join one of my local TA centres. I am lucky enough to live quite close to both an Infantry, REME, Royal Artillery & Royal Engineers centre. My dream would be an Infantry role but I doubt that my fitness level would ever be good enough. I would also love to learn to drive in the TA and buy my own ex-MOD Land rover to modify and keep road worthy. I'm really not sure whether to join Infantry and specialise as a driver & mechanic (can I do this?) or join REME as a vehicle mechanic. However would I get enough of the Infantry style soldiering that I crave in REME or would I literally spend my career under vehicles? Can anyone bare any light on both roles and give me some advice?
