What are you thinking of doing when you leave the Mob? If you want a job where you can still have a sense of humour and a good laugh in the mess room then join the Railways. I kid you not. I did a few things after I left including the following; Personal protection for a rich bloke in Knightsbridge. Boring as hell. Police Officer in Manchester. Might as well handcuff yourself thanks to the PC brigade. Selling Insurance. Crap. Then I hit the jackpot and became a Train Driver. I do a 35 hour 4 day week for Â£37k a year. If I do my rest days and the odd Sunday it goes up to over Â£60k. You get the best seat on the Train and you are your own boss. And as long as you don't screw up, it's a job for life. If anyone is interested here is a link to give you all of the info you should need with links to vacancies. http://www.railwayregister.care4free.net/becoming_a_train_driver.htm I just hope that this may be of some interest as it's not too easy trying to figure out what to do when you stop serving your country. Stay safe folks.
