Which branch do you wish you had joined.

I joined as an e.m. and ended up in the fleet air arm in the radio trade working on aircraft. Looking back I enjoyed the life but having worked as a Phalanx engineer for British Aerospace I think maybe I would have enjoyed life in the general service as in the WE branch more.

What would you change branch to given the chance?

Given my time again, I would do the same job as I do now, but would have chosen to do it in the RAF.

HERETIC :lol:

I would have joined the Fleet Air Arm again but as a direct entry Tiff rather than waiting 15 years to see the light!

Wouldn't you rather have been a mechanician? :smile:

Are you mad??? You probably would've made it to the dizzy heights of Cpl by now if you were lucky!

I spent 5 years as an AEM before retrading. Best decision ever.

I know, I know :oops:
The other side of the coin though, as Mrs. Squirrel (a RAF CT) points out, is that I'd probably be a Sgt in the RAF, as opposed to the dizzy heights of WO2. Swings and roundabouts I suppose, although it would be nice not to have to worry about finding a real job in a few years.

and you can shut up as well :lol:
 
I'd have joined as a Scribe from the word go instead of listening to the pack of lies I got spun at the Careers Office and wasting 6 years as a Sparker.
