This is the caption of a picture on the HR Specialist rolefinder page (Role Finder - British Army Website) and others mentioning how a soldier takes a break from desk work to go on patrol, and how they may be called upon to stand alongside the infantry. All in all, I'm taking this with a pinch of salt. Is it likely that you could be called on to do a patrol or even 'fight alongside infantry'? Because any other literature doesn't seem to suggest that. I seem to remember an advert where a female SPS was doing searches, but I'm male so yeah... I ask this because I am considering putting it in as one of my choices, but really don't want to spend ALL my time at a desk and the only deployment option is another office with the same job, just with a higher chance the air conditioning will break, just in a more hot and sweaty office. Variety is the spice of life apparently. No offence to anyone that does this but heck, planned on joining the army to not always be behind a desk. P.S, Not suggesting here that I want to be like the infantry to do 'proper soldiering'.
