Hello, I am looking for information on enlisting as a 35P Cryptologic Linguist.
I have read nearly everything there is to read online about it, but am looking for someone who is actually doing it for a bit of advice. Most people are telling me not to enlist, but I was offered a good LRP, I'd love to learn a new language and get a TS clearance (as opposed to going to OCS and possibly getting something I don't want).
If I were you, I would go down to 5th Group's GSB and talk to some their guys to get some first hand [email protected], thanks that was good to know, thanks for the heads up.
I hope to get end up [email protected], I actually found out from them.
DLI is a great opportunity, and one of the best ways you can learn a language. As of the last few months, IET soldiers have had some very strict rules imposed on them.
9 O'clock curfew, no alcohol, battle buddy required at all times(you would encounter this in basic..basically need someone practically holding your hand wherever you go, or risk getting an Article 15).
Needless to say, morale for Army IET soldiers at DLI is pretty low right now.
Things used to be more relaxed here considering the already present stress levels and the length of the training, but that's not the case right now.
The organisation's director general Giles Roca said: 'We are disappointed that the Government has once again raised taxation on tobacco when tax on some of the lowest priced cigarettes already accounts for 90 per cent of the price.'Taxation on tobacco in the UK is already the highest in the EU meaning that prices in the UK are up to four times higher than in other European countries.'Taxation on tobacco has also increased by over 50 per cent over the last 5 years.
Today's move will simply encourage people to buy from the black market.'It takes business away from the legitimate trade whilst costing the taxpayer around £2.4billion in lost taxes in the last year alone.' It is part of a series of so-called 'sin taxes' which will also see the price of wine, spirits and beer increase.
Duty on alcohol had not risen for five years but in today's Spring Budget speech the Chancellor announced plans that will hike the price of a bottle of still wine by 8p.
