Those that are trained in the way of the infanteer are the ones shooting at folk etc. the rest of us are totally untrained to be in that situation and would be a liability to everyone around us so no, you won't be sent out there.
Well, not before Christmas anyway.
Not just comms rates Lamri us LOGGS branch get the hot and sandy treatment very often right now. A few mates of mine are diong their bit out there just now.
Apologies BKS, I wasn't aware
The point I was very badly trying to make, was that there are quite a few different flavour matelots out there doing something or other.
