Well, an engineering regiment did their winter training in my "backyard" 2 years in a row and it looked really interesting and I knew then that if I joined I'd have an awesome job that would never always be boring

Got called up for National Service, that was the time you were in the forces for two years doing the same work as a regular for half his pay, less leave, less travel warrants. Still they allowed you or should I say they insisted that you took the same if not more risks the the Regular soldier.
