Transcript from ‘Beating The Bombmakers’ podcast
Chris – You go into your twelve months at Sandhurst, where you spend a couple of years as a non-commissioned officer. So in my case I sort of reached my ceiling at lance-corporal. Sandhurst was the only way I hit. After that I wanted to carry on my career and then you could go right the way through the ranks, which we call a late entry commission. Those guys just do a couple of weeks obviously, because they don’t need to to do much longer. There’s not much they need to be trained in, but in terms of when you get there, you’re sponsored by one of the regiments.
