DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

The army is nothing like the army brochures and the videos you see online.

Military accommodation is basic and you will spend your spare time polishing every inch of it.

You pay for your food in the army. Range stew, rare chicken, deep fried spam, hot salad and cofftea are all on the “menu”.

Other action packed activities include but are not limited to:

Standing on parade for hours.

Painting things.

Picking up litter.

Digging trenches and filling them back in again.

Waiting around for hours on end for no obvious reason.

Counting things in the stores and then counting them again.

Sweeping, the army have large areas of ground that must be kept immaculate at all times.

DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE, DON’T JOIN THE ARMY.
