Has anybody served in the REME and got extremely dissillusioned with the complete lack of camaraderie and that non-existent feeling of actually belonging to anything you can be proud of or loyal to? Getting posted and shunted around all the time like a 'temp' from some agency I never really feel like im part of whatever unit im in and cant see the point in forming any kind of lasting friendship with the blokes cos ill be off within a few months while they all get prepared to go on another tour togther. I would love it if all was changed and REME bods could actually be part of the batallion/ regiment/ whatever they are serving with and stay there for their entire careers if they wished, forming tight knit crews and actually having a t-shirt with a logo on that they all wear and respect, not just another rubbish workshop t-shirt some fat full screw has thought up and is about as relevant as tits on bergen. That feeling of exclusion is the worst part of being in the REME. Feels to me like you're just on the sidelines, not part of anything in particular,not really, nothing to be loyal to. Just a bloke in green rig with no real place to be, never has a chance to put any roots down and is separated off and mixed in with a load of other blokes in the REME who never really care about anything ive just said, just want to finish their 22 and bugger off to civvy st and put their feet up. REME. What an utterly boll***s way of running a corp! Why bother wearing rig? we might as well be school kids on work experience for all the feeling of belonging. And who the f*** would ever want to be loyal to the REME anyway? Its not like you'd ever want to get a tatoo on your arm of a horse with a lightning bolt flying out of its ar**. Time for me to transfer i think. Anyone?
