This question is more aimed at current serving personnel. I've passed briefing and I am now in the process of preparing fam visits, in particular, the Infantry (Royal Welsh, PWRR, Rifles, Gurkhas). Infantry has always been where I have focused to join as an officer. I know there is a culture of drinking in the Army, which doesn't bother me in the slightest as I am use to going out/ socialising with my university, work and home friends without drinking. I know there is a stronger sense of 'family/ comradeship' in Infantry regiments. I am currently serving in an infantry light role TA unit (which has confirmed my passion for light role), which I chose to join rather than the UOTC due to its heavy drinking culture, and it took at minimum a year for my company to accept it. Looking around the forum, I have noticed that fam visits also evaluate your ability to socialise and be one of them. However, will this have a negative impact on my likelihood to be accepted into the Infantry as an officer, due to it limiting my ability to socialise with others? I've always considered it a strength, as I interpreted it as a form of 'role model' and an example to how I have withstood pressure to drink for the last 3 years, which could be values for a good infantry officer.
