Re: All clear now thanks :)

Don't forget Ash, if the RSigs ain't for you, you can always transfer to another corps or trade within the RSigs. Good luck to both of you. There are days when I wish I had not left. Cheers bud. I'm 100% sure the signals is for me. By left do you mean left completely or transferred to another unit?...

Re: Wait to join my preferred trade or settle for second bes

Re: Stupid question or not?

Sadly no you cannot, you will have choices though. If I remember correctly, you have 3 choices of postings and you will if it is possible get one of your 3.

It all depends on vacancies and requirements.
