Day to day jobs there is a difference between making notes on things your learning as i would assume you may do in the infantry and filling out mass reports on your findings which may occur in the int corps. The above is just my thoughts as I haven't had any experience in the infantry my thoughts ar...

I'm not sure many people will know the answer. I guess your just intrigued rather than wondering what happens if i get to that stage. So i shall grace you with the thoughts of Bravo Two Zero's highest reported SAS trooper was Andy McNab and Vincent Phillips who I believe were both Sergeants. Obvious...

I have always found job descriptions love to paint things rosey. I would love to know how much time is put into deciphering things and how much time you sit there writing reports etc... I have emailed asking for as much detail as possible. I shall report back my findings.

In response to your attempt at correcting a grammatical error you failed to make the sentence actually make half decent sense. You post this kind of crap again and it will be deleted. You post this kind of crap again and i will delete it. These are better examples of using the english language. =) M...

I have noticed this role in my travels. I brushed it aside thinking that maybe a little less active than i would have liked hence going for infantry in the past. If there is anyone that has gone down this route it would be good to hear what your day is made up of mostly.

I was given anti depressants which gave you more strength to fight the mental issues. It didn't make you happy but it seemed to give you an urge not to give up. As for the PTSD side that i suffered, the symptoms became weaker but i never forgot. As a past sufferer, just having friends and family aro...

I got a feeling mine might be the same still in the process of registering with docs having to see the nurse before i can actually see a doctor which sucks. If you keep training on it i believe it can cause a stress fracture. I guess you could either fully rest or do something simple like swimming, ...

It's all kind of strange selection they ask you to a TST for certain jobs and the reason stated is that they don't trust GCSE / school education. Yet on the other hand you get told you need 3 A levels or equivalent. Those sort of levels of qualifications do prove your ability to learn skills althoug...

I did some cycling today, and i think it maybe a case of just concentrating more when i'm running but i will see what the doc says might need to adjust my left running shoe to adjust to my inability to run in a normal fashion(most polite way i can think of putting it)

It was something i had last year in august time and i rested for 3 months before doing any sort of physical activity again. I've had no problems until i started running again today and it's my fault for running a bit lame on my left leg. If you stand with both feet parallel, lift the front of your l...

I would recommend watching religulous some very interesting subjects brought up. It has a part of it that is serious bringing up things from holy books and questioning people who believe in them, the other side of it is there's a comedy or mocking humour part. Islam is brought up and i believe it's ...
