From what I can gather the training for some trades provide civilian recognised qualifications and therefore have been named "apprenticeships". I would also hazard a guess that a 3 year return of service will be expected, meaning that you will have to stay in the RAF for a further 3 years after qual...

I saw this actor on Saturday. Sporting the old style No.1's, full beard and a white shirt. They could have at least used an actor that was believable. But it is good that he received a positive response from Joe Public.

How to mount my very first gong.

Just after a bit of advice. I am receiving my Iraq Medal on 23rd of this month and have to have my ribband in place before the ceremony. That doesnt give me enough time to get the station tailor to sort it (only here once a fortnight). Im not too bad with a needle and thread so am just wondering if ...

At your six month stage or upon completion of a Trade Ability Test (TAT), whichever is soonest you will progress to level 1 and will receive your LAC rank slides. Then at your 12 month stage or completion of TAT you will progress to level 2 and wil...

One is dressed smartly in a suit and the other has turned up in jeans or even trousers and a T shirt....... What would your opinion be if you were the interviewer? I know that other aspects of a person w...

Newly Wed

Well after returning from a "holiday" in Florida, I/we have had to face the music and tell family and friends that we have got married whilst we were there. :dropmouth: To be fair it went a lot better than expected (breaking the news, not the wedding). There were a few tears, but thats mothers for y...

Hi there, I am fairly sure that you wouldnt have to do basic training if you pull your finger out and join up pretty quick. We've just had a girl join us who had been in the army for 7 years but left about 14-18 months ago. However she did have to do her basic training. But to be fair its only 9 wee...
