dont think i will get in this time round as the deadline is tuesday 12pm, so the post wont get there in time. Plus i just dont know were to start on the application form so id rather take my time on it and get it right as it is very easy to fail just on the form itself.

Scotts uncle is quite senior in the service, I will ask him if he has any tips or advice since he never seems to post on the boards!

My Dad recently retired from the fire service, following 35 years of service.

Initially he was a firefighter, but in latter years (as an officer) he was a firesafety inspector.

TBH I think the red tape in the service, all the strikes, and pay disputes got on his nerves, and I think when he had his time in for his pension, he couldnt get out fast enough...

Not a lot, only that after 35 years he wasnt happy with all the continous pay disputes etc, and the pay conditions...
