Re: Gay Military Personnel

Mark, serving soldiers can't talk to people like yourself without prior permission from their CO. I suggest you go through the offical MoD channels, they'll be happy to help.

Re: What shall I do?

If you want to be a Marine, go for the Royal Marines. You are the one who will be doing the job for the next however many years.

As a Royal Marine you can specialise to become a member of the Royal Marines Police, so you can still have the police option open to you.

Re: TA medical question.

Hi , I have enlisted to join the TA and have just got to the early stage of doing my medical forms. My question is I am 100% healthy and fit for my age. The only flaw that may show up was I had a very complicated time last year and led my self into depression and took a over dose. Stupid I know but...

Re: Catterick CIC

Why did you decide to join the mincing Rifles when you could have joined Her Majesty's Foot Guards :wink: In all seriousness, well done on passing CIC. In my platoon about 2/3rds of the blokes who started were either back-squadded, transferred of DAOR'd. CIC is one of the toughest courses you can do...

Re: Studying in and joining the military

-Could anyone give me a rough idea and breakdown of how long the joining process takes, for a recruit, from the time you first walk into the recruitment office to the start of basic training (specifically for a commonwealth citizen). Basically the length of time I have to be responsible for my fina...

Re: ADVICE ON JOINING.

ah okay thanks. They don't look for a certain height either do they? I am quite short (5ft6) Probably a dis advantage but hey ho! There is a minimum height, but it is something like 5ft - maybe even less. Personally I am bang on 5ft7 so not much taller than you and it hasn't really caused much of a...

Re: Does the RNR have an onbard role?

Some RNR roles do deploy on ships, but mainly in a 'Force Protection' role, so standing on the upper deck with small-arms.

Re: Pioneer

Sounds good then. Don't fancy arsing around with IED's to be honest, but everything else sounds good. The wife won't be too happy about me going infantry, but I want that Rifles cap badge.
