Just a couple of questions:

If you undertake a specialisation, what is the 'return of service', if there is one, before you could transfer to another specialisation?

Can you do this at all?

And is being trained in several specialisations during your career something that is encouraged in the corps, or something that you'd be lucky to be able to get to do?

As far as i know hardly anyone goes past 2 specializations. I dont think it is encouraged, better to have masters of one thing then a load of ''jack of all trades''.

i know a lad that has specialised as a driver and later went on to specalise as a vehicle mechanic and i think he now wants to join the SBS. Reconnaissance operator is usually the fisrt step towards being a mountain leader aswell... So it is possible to specialise more than once

What do you do as a reconnaissance operator?,
as I saw this specialisation and it says if someone wanted to be a mountain leader it would be a good place to start,
is it basically just a toned down mountain leader?

As far as i know they dont do very long range reconnaissance like moutain leaders and they arnt trained as well in climbing, survival and evasion. But pretty much do the same thing
