British Army - Anyone here currently serve / has served?
« on: June 19, 2016, 02:55:31 pm »

Afternoon gents.

If you haven't served in the British Army or any other armed forces then you may as well not bother reading the rest as this is directed for any chaps who have been or are in the British Army but yeah.

If anyone around this shithole has served or whatever, do drop a comment. I'm interested to see what regiments / corps you served with and where you did your Phase 1 training.

Oh, and if you attended AFC Harrogate as a Junior Applicant (16-17) then let me know. Heading there in September. Anyone who's served in the armed forces of any other country feel free to drop a comment.

I'm assuming you mean regulars rather than reserves?

No no, reserves too. They go through the same training and so on after all.

Not really-it's become very condensed for Reserves (was when I did it at least). They basically wanted to get the numbers up to 30,000 as that was the commitment Cameron made. I was at Pirbright so can't tell you much about Harrogate.

Basic training for Reserves is now around 3 weeks, referred to as Phase 1. Phase 2 advanced training depends on what unit you're with.

I had my place at Harrogate for a long time before dropping out, my step brother, uncle, grandfather and great grand father have all served though.

I was junior entry for Royal Anglians (My Uncle/Step brother are in it currently). And Grandfather/Great grandfather both Royal Welsh.

Come for a run in Ippy sometime instead of all those parties ay;) Saying that, if you need a good running club there is one in Martlesham, it is by the gym.

I don't plan on joining anymore though. I have a few mates at Harrogate atm if you want me to ask them anything drop me a Facebook message.

Will do mate, expect one soon.

And Karth, training time all depends on what you're wanting to join. If you're a junior entry wanting to go into the infantry, Royal Armoured Corps/Household Cavalry, Royal Artillery and some Royal Logistics Corps roles then Phase 1 training is 49 weeks where as roles such as the Royal Army Medical Corps, Signals, Engineers etc their phase 1 is only 23 weeks but has a longer Phase 2 training.

So yeah, it's all down to what you want to join really. Providing I 100% get a placed at Harrogate in September then my training will be 49 weeks as I've applied for the infantry.
