What does The Rifles look for in potential officers?The kind of leadership and personal qualities that The Rifles looks for in its officers is not always easy to define, particularly when so much depends on the individual. This is one reason why the Colonel Commandant personally takes special care in the selection of officers. We do not work to any rigid formula in our choice of future leaders as much of our strength comes from having officers with diverse interests and talents - a cross section of very different and talented people who nevertheless identify with our common outlook. We look for potential officers who are positive and show imagination, personality and a zest for life. People who are often different, but always prepared to have a go at anything.
