Yeah I'm also looking at getting my green lid at some point. I'm planning on doing a couple of years in the reserves (Above water Force protection) before transferring to warfare specialist full time ... Anyways of doing this and potentially getting my lid?
You're really funny aren't you? Id actually be laughing if it wasn't aimed at me. I probably have more knowledge and experience of the army than any of you. I posted on this site because I want to join the navy ... Now stop with the piss taking because it really doesn't help. Now I know why the army used to always take the piss.
Love these ******* coming into our site and making the rules and telling us what to do and what not to do...Who the **** do you think you are ? As for probably knowing more about the army than etc etc...Oh do **** off you cretinous little shite, two week course on Call of Duty and they think they are Steve Mitchell.
I would do ... Problem(s) is I've applied for the navy reserve. And, I'm not yet fit enough. The plans always been to go into 148 in 29 commando via warfare (comms) but I've always wanted to go into Intel. So I'm kinda stuck.
One of my colleagues has been a part of 148 for a long time over numerous appointments and worked at Poole. The emphasis is on your trade ability first (comms), closely followed by fitness and green skills. There are a lot of people who want to do it but selection is brutal and like SFC selection is a mixture of trade/fitness.
You would have to be in for a reasonable period to build up the skills/experience to even consider going 148 (and AACC), so if that is a solid intent, join keeping your head down and apply yourself equally to your fitness not underestimating the challenge you're setting yourself.
The reason why you're being baited it because it's akin to the "I want to join the Army, I'm going to go Para, how long/when can I apply for 22", you see/here that all the time, the reality is you have to be honest with yourself and do it in steps.
I know a company intelligence officer in the infantry and Him and his recce platoon refer to the data they collect as Intel. The Americans don't use that term as far as I know and i wouldn't know about call of duty. Speak to anyone who works in Intel and they'll tell you. Imagine a yank trying to say Intel? It wouldn't roll off the tongue.
Oddly our US colleagues are very much into 'Intel' whereas we prefer Int (and those who ply that dark trade 'Int-ers'). 30IX are a dedicated asset for 3CdeX, and their role is tactical/data/int collection & fusion, and they will ply their trade with small numbers of RN bodies. The RN will embrace this model too in the short to medium term as Information Warfare is embraced.
Therefore, Redarse - let me suggest a path for you. Join the RNR, get through basic which will take you about 1 to 1.5 years. Then talk to someone about joining the Informations Operations Branch who work more or less alongside the J2 function. Then and only then will you get to work alongside 30IX, and you can go from there.
It starts with you getting cold and wet at Raleigh and ironing lots of shirts tidily. Then we can go from there....
Sarcasm Warning Red...
We have all made reasonable suggestions as to his best course of action (Safeguard: CmdKeen even recommended my suggestion, praise indeed) but it is quite clear that he wants to proceed directly to King's Squad without dealing with all that ironing rubbish, so we need to look at that and sort it for him....
Think carefully about this young person, we are all castigating him/her.
Perhaps we should be looking for ways to help him achieve hes aims and role in the RN.
We could be turning down another Nelson
