I can't think of a single 'Wedge' who has written an account of how utterly brave he is within the world of EOD. Can the Really Large Corps say the same thing? Mmmmmmmmm......NO! When it comes to self publicity the RLC is streets ahead.
Hmmm, whats the required BARB test score for a Combat engineer? Oh thats right its lower than that of an Ammunition Technician. Enough Said.
Back to the earlier point. Gents, thing started a thread in the RLC forum about an RLC Officer. Not only shouldn't it concern you, but also you shouldn't be commenting when you have nothing constructive to say and you'll so easily get blown out of the water.
C or L. Your assumption has little evidence to purely support an ammo accident. Surely it could have fallen out of a low level Herc that was loaded by a pissed up RAF storeperson who got lost when trying to take it to load on a Tornado GR3.
Makes it RAF Police (drink driving), RAF Armourer ( its a bomb (I think)), HSE ( bya buliding that could be civvy), AIB ( fell out of aeroplane), 11 EOD (to identify it) and 33 EOD ( to tip off Sky and get the publicity).
