Hi all, I left the mob in 2007 after 9 years as an OM, I left for silly reasons really, I had a hoofing bird at the time and it looked serious but it soon became apparent that things were not to be with her. I retrained as a plumber, got into the trade and didn't fair to well with the recession etc. I've been on the sausage since then and have been living in assisted accomodation, I got involved in the ganj for a bit but have been clean for over 6 months now and I am really looking to turn my life around and get back on track. I had glowing reports in the mob, passed for killick etc and would really like to challenge myself. I've looked at the booties but I don't think it would provide the sort of mental stimulation I'm after, also I don't fancy back to back tours in the sandpit. I was planning to rejoin as an OM but I've since found out the branch no longer exists, they new alternatives look a bit pony to me. When I served I spent a short amount of time attached to an STC (shhhhh!) unit and I really fancy getting myself involved. Obviously what they were doing was uber hush hush so I didn't really get to find out exactly what their job involved, but needless to say it looked sexy as ****, what with their Gucci kit, jet skis and H&Ks etc. So could anyone let me know, serving or otherwise, what it is they actually do? What is daily life like? I'm fit as **** (ex RN athletics champion) and reasonably clever, what are the chances of getting in? What's selection like? Are they still based between Poole and Hereford? What is the tempo of current ops? Cheers in advance Günther :-D Also if any other newbies are thinking of getting involved please get in touch, it would be good to start training with a friendly face.
