No, no, nooo; it's a prerequisite. What do you think they get up to out the back of the ops tent on those dark and lonely nights?

A rad op is second only to god and even then god says please if he wants good comms.

All should bow to the flags of excellence.

As for the dark lonely nights in the ops tent, I don't know about now but when I was in green about a third of the troop was female, do the math.

Of course that could just mean that it takes two rad ops to satisfy one female but I prefer to believe that rad ops are just inherently plain gorgeous.

Stupidity over now, thank you

In a word...Yes. Bloody flatliners. he he
If you're so bloody good why do you always end up back in MT at some point handing out worktickets...

You are never this brave on the vehicle park I have noticed.

In any case you are not a patch on Movers or ATs :D it is also because of your trade that some of my guys do not get higher band!

Rad Op and good comms, now theres a contradition in terms.
Never have I seen so much fear over the word BOWMAN either - most of your lot (Sad-Ops) are hiding under cam netting in the store over this... :monkey:

You should be asking 'is there really a trade devoted to some bloke driving?'

Waste of fecking resources having such a narrow skill set, after all most of us can drive and still perform other duties.

Of course you would be able to do this tactically and also drive dangerous goods etc and any number of other things covered within this category - without a trade framework you would stilll be able to spend the time necessary to do all this and learn transport management for later on in your career (for within the military - i.e when promoted byond Cpl) etc...

Haved a word with yourself Dingerr :roll:

Drive tactically - YES

Drive dangerous goods - YES

Oversee the management of an MT - YES

And i think you will find that there are many other arms out there who already have one skillset (Inf, RE, RAC, RA) who quite easily take on these skills as well as doing their day job.

So I had a word with myself and found myself to be quite accurate in this view.

Wow! This is fantastic news - I can tell all the drivers they are not needed anymore then... Who, pray, is going to replace them though and what will they be called?

Shall we call them Logisticians? If so aside from driving what else are they going to do? You offer up the fact that they are not needed but have not given us the benefit of the alternative yet...

Well I heard that if you had been circumcised you automatically failed rad op selection.

Ignore Dingerr, he is such a cnut.

Being a Radio Op in the real Corps (Royal Signals) not some hotch potch Corps, whilst I was in iraq there was aleast 3 incidents of RLC drops drivers who flattened their rifles with said vehicle. In my mind RLC = Restricted Learning Capabilties.

I cannot wait for the Fag Ops to be banished from the Driver trade and have to stand alone within the Corps. Lets see how they will cope when they can only get promoted on one board instead of enhancing their career on the back of the Drivers!!!

Stilts, your a cnut. If i remember correctly there is a whole thread devoted to scaley F*ck ups. Cannot be arrsed to find it, thats how important it is.

Well I guess flattening your rifle before going out on the ground in an operational theatre is not that important, I guess my RLC version is right then!!!

Stilts

Yes the Royal Sigs have had their cock ups, the best one I can think of is the wrong crystals in the sets on Op Market Garden. LOL

I tell you what Stilts, run along to your own forum and stop trying to mix it with the big boys eh.

I have really enjoyed your tittle-tattle tales about as much as all the whingeing about Blandford and the rest of the wobblyhead crap you all spout.

Next you will be giving us that 'teeth arm' crap... :roll:

Rad Ops are needed as are Drivers as are the caravan club (Tank Transporters) We all do (Or did in my case as am out now) a job that is needed, if it was not needed then the various trades would have been Fukced off a long time ago.
Oh and btw we are on two boards for promotion as we do two jobs (Drive and Operate Radios), Drivers are on one board as they Drive! not hard to work that one out is it.
And just to throw something else in the pot quite a few Master driver friends of mine are also Rad Ops, now they must be doing something right.
