Fodd, Ive been told that underwater fire fighting can be dangerous although the money is really good. Suppose thats because its so hard to get the water there :roll:

I'm homeless and skint, the military did fark all for me in preparing myself for later in life.

If it wasnt for Wifi I wouldnt be able to log on and post, as it is most of the pimps try and rob me of my laptop from time to time. I just mention pressups and Artist comes to my aid.

Id go back all over again and this time go straight past the AFCO and into MAcdonalds for a real career with decent scran

I came out after 22 and started working for a traffic planning consultancy....so something completely new. Now a highways project engineer with the local council. If you travel through any part of West Berkshire and you knacker your car on speed humps..... I probably did them! Or if you're held up big style...it's cos I've been tweaking the traffic lights or closing roads off, or putting parking restrictions in, or ....

Also do fatal traffic accident investigation work after someone's fallen off the edge of roads which is morbidly fascinating in understanding how to prevent someone doing it again... (Lesson is ALWAYS wear your seatbelt! Most of the fatals I look at result from bodies getting flung out and scraped along the road.) Clunk, Click! Every trip!

Ok then Arran, to add a serious answer

On leaving the RAF Regt:

1. Sneaky beaky "govt commissioned" job guarding foreign diplomats in their new premises that some chaps from Hereford had made embassyless 3 years earlier. :wink:
2.various security jobs for about 10 months
3. Met Police in central London -13 years
4. Swedish MoD - since 97.
