  • Get paid loads more money for doing loads less work.
  • Highly intelligent and so pick up the best birds, especially cos of the above point
  • Takes ages to train them so always in a cushy posting
  • Perfect "Walt" material as they can rarely tell you what their job entails. If they did you'd be really, REALLY disappointed.
  • Highly intelligent? I don't think so judging by some of the windowlickers that go through Chicksands. Mind you, some of the birds would get it! And it doesn't take ages to train them. Their job entails them cleaning landrovers and sweeping roads when not deployed as there's nothing for them to do. And working 3 1/2 days a week at 14 Sigs Regiment when not deployed is extracting the urine!
