[quote="unclevanya" Has anyone regretted not rebadging to another corps from the one they were currently in at a younger age?[/quote]

Indeed yes. As a 17 year old I was fodder to the people at the selection center, they had the knowledge, I didn't. Initially (after about a year) I tried to transfer to the infantry because I was bored stiff at a place called 16 Battalion, Bicester, it was the worst posting I ever had. I remember the interview very well, CSM Winskill (B Coy) could reach 100 decibels on a good day bless him. But looking back, I was just...I dunno, a testosterone filled 18 year I guess. Got promoted and bust went to jail a couple of times and was glad to see the back of Bicester. Soltau was when he army started for me.

Tam I know of one of your guys (A&SH) who transferred to MPSC and ended up in close arrest in our Guardroom, this was around '78/'79 - you may remember the case?

ShellDrake if you can PM me with the details please as I had left the army in 1978 to join the police.Tam

When rebadging to another unit,do you keep your seniority with your new unit?

I transferred from 1 RTR to the MPSC at Colchester in 1988. I was already a Sgt but on transfer my seniority was reduced to my date of transfer to MPSC.

Promotion within MPSC at that time, was for the most part based on time served "in the corps". Those Cpl's who transferred (promotion to Sgt is automatic on transfer) with 10 or more years to serve could expect, providing they did not drop themselves in the shit, to reach WOII/WOI. I transferred with 6 years still to do and was told that I would not get beyond S/SGT due to my "limited" time left in the army.

A RAPC S/Sgt transferred in and had to revert to Sgt. He did however regain his crown quite rapidly, to the dismay of some who were in the queue for promotion.

As already mentioned, a lot of RMP transfer to work at MCTC Colchester. Certainly during my time, a lot of infanteers came over, tired of digging trenches but did not want to leave the army.

Has anyone signed up with to continue service after doing their 22 years or other time by joining the MPGs, the MoD uniformed armed/unarmed gate guard security service. And does previous SNCO rank in the regulars count at all when you join up. And if so, is/was the MPGS worth it if for those who wanted to continue in and near the armed forces.

Up to what age does this organisation take ex-regulars, and can MPGS SNCOs order regular Army squaddies around who are of a lower rank/rate.

Likewise Gordon,I never volunteered for those type of duties especially dressing up for some very senior officers visiting the unit.I tried my best to stay out of No 1 and No 2 dress especially with kilt order. No

Only just come across this post and its pretty elderly now....but so am I :https://2img.net/i/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif(
From my intake in Army Apprentice School at Arborfield we had a number of 're-badgers'.  One to the Rag and Oil Company and he finished up Lt Col. but  I believe there were others.
One got thrown off his Tiffy course and went to the RAOC as a Vehicle Specialist, which sounds grand, but for a trained Veh. Mech. it was as easy as falling off a log. He was a WO2 before the rest of his Tiffy course passed out as S/Sgts.
Another became a 'secret squirrel', commissioned in the infantry and again became a Lt. Col.
Another, after being commissioned in REME transferred to the Pay Corp.  Different!
One passed selection for the SAS and served with them for a number of years, another became a Teeny Weeny Airways pilot.
And another got a commission in the cavalry.   Perhaps he won the lottery!  
Several transferred to the infantry.  In fact, one only did a year at Arborfield before going to the Black Watch. But he already spoke the language!!!!  And we didn't understand him.
Towards the 15th year of my service I served with the 9/12th Lancers and was posted on as they moved from Tidworth. I seriously considered requesting to re-badge to that Regiment. It was the best unit I was posted to in my 22 years. By coincidence, one of my mates from Arborfield joined them at their new posting as ASM. That would have been a turn up for the books.  
I was actually dragged up in Woolwich but never for one second did I think of going to the RA.  Far too noisy.  As a young Cfn with 14 Regt., when we had checked all the vehicles in a location, I was always 'pressed ganged' into being a gun number on the 25 lb-ers.  I was even taught to lay the damn noisy things.
