Hi , read this forum for a while and know theres a few lads on here that are either with the BA or were ..
im very interested in joining , one of the reasons an irish lad joins across the water is to go on operations in conflicts around the world and i guess to see action ,
ive been reading up on whats happening with the cutbacks and their lack of choppers and air carriers but i really cant make heads or tails of what this means for the future of the british armed forces
my question is will the cutbacks , downsizing and lack of vehicles and all that will that stop them from being deployed in the next few years ???
how does all this affect units like the paras and the royal marines ??? their the rapid reaction force so what does this mean for them as their supposed to be first in and that ?
im just asking because you would hate to join up go through all that training and go no where with it you know ?
anyone with decent opinions or with experience over there please post as this could end up affecting me joining or not
