    I bet its all a big trick and then when people sign on the dotted line they get shipped off to a land far far away and all they wanted was to join the URNU :eek:

    I'd be more than happy to go away while at uni (other than the 2 weeks in the summer/weekends) but best not tell them that

    Well I was lead to believe that you can apply for a summer attachment lasting the whole 3 months if you wanted! But this is OTC we are talking about, not URNU. There were a few guys in my unit going to Cyprus and such places.

    Depends which regt they are attached to. One guy I know is sponsored by a Scottish inf regt (not a scottish blood cell in him - old boys network ) and he has gone over to Cyprus to do inf stuff (only a wild stab in the dark that ). But there have been officer cadets going to Deutschland/Canada as well as those less sparkly postings such as Salisbury plain

    Sounds good, I'm not sure where the URNUs end up in the summer, I think they go to a few of the European ports that aren't too far away.

    I'm startig to wonder about '45 days getting to know the service (rn)' involves though, it doesn't really say anywhere. :confused:
