Our chief instructor who is a cretin has ordered the removal of the rogues gallery of WPNS tiffy courses dating back to ART WPNS 1 [1959]? from the cellar dwellers coridor. I am at present trying to get them put to disk, so if anybodies interested when done let me know & I will send any piccys requested. He said we dont teach history what a pratt

Nige, which one are you then the tin man, the scarecrow or the little girl with the pony tails? And just how bumpy is that yellow brick road?

Phase 2 of the master plan, Phase 1 being merge Gun Ftr and Armr. Phase 3 is make it a feeder trade to Art Mech, Phase 4 contract out weapons support leaving Armourers to only fix OFCS and play warhammer, which will be the final straw.

The C.I is right, the british army is an entirely inappropriate place to hold on to a sense of the past. Everyone knows that.

Have you tried donating them to the Corp archives. Just because he isn't interested doesn't mean that everyone isn't.

Tin man for sure, although my sidies can be mistaken for ponytails in the right light.....

Funnily enough, my trade down here is now 'Artificer Mechanical'...

You can't delete Gods trade by taking down photos.
Gods trade my arse, the worst bosses i ever had and who wouldnt listen to advice were wpn spankers who were in charge of VM's, used to make some shite decisions and as a result the blokes used to get fucked over as they had no appreciation for what our job entails due to lack of experience doing the ******* job!
For example: If i tell some **** that the t/box is royally fucked on a veh, at least as a vm tiffy he might listen, not tell me to stop having such a negative attitude and to sort it out... Or with another bell end, if a JCB needs to go to 2nd/3rd line to get the main pivot pins for the lifting arms changed then it needs to go, the fact that 2 porta presses broke trying to force them out should have made it clear, not wait until i am on a day off, get the MTSM to cut the frame with the pin, use heat to get the pins out (would have melted the cab in situ) then weld it back on, expect me to fit the new pins and sign it off, i couldnt believe he was shocked when i told him to **** off and if he wanted to sign it off do it himself, funnily enough the JCB ended up being cast...
Stick to your rifles and dustcoats or at least have the decency to listen to the blokes who do the job they are trained to do..!

There are no Armourers in Hell

Thats interesting I had much the same issue with a VM tiffy B Mech fresh off the production line
posted to a TANKIE fitter section who tried to tell me how to rectify a failure to run out on a Chally , to compound the insult he then suggested I ask the VM Sgt for advice I then suggested he **** in an off direction !! Oh and his solution ..... CHUCK the wire rope from the pull back kit down the barrel with a D-shackle on the end and put a metal bar across the back of the Breech ring then pullit out using the 432 :::::: AYE brilliant idea Tiff !

It is gods trade, sometimes those within his trade have moments of weakness - but as can be seen from above, poor engineering solutions can be bourne by any trade!

Again, good luck with keeping the photos.

Finished stamping your little feet, spat the dummy out and thrown Teddy out of the pram ?

We ARE Gods, all Armourers are chosen men.

I say again:

There are no Armourers in Hell
There are Queers, Tiffies and VM's
But there are no Armourers in Hell


VM's are life's little loser's, jog on sonny.

I dont mind em, just grips my shit when you have some ******* calling themselves 'gods trade' I can understand the thicky mechs calling themselves that, but ******* wpns spankers? i think ******* not! Like i said more respect for the cleaners at Bordon than some **** wearing a dustcoat calling him/herself 'gods trade' when usually the majority of the work they do is on tour and they count themselves as being busy, well ******* hell, reality check you are earning your wage ******, but back at the unit you can sit back and space out your inspections for the weapons for the ECI.... maybe inspect the odd one that goes tits up on an APWT and cry to everyone how you spent 4 days on the ranges while everyone in the regiment went through their MATTS..! Booo ******* Hooo!

Chosen by who? Jim'll fix it? News flash that **** is dead and your trade is going the same way, its that simple, you will be dual trading with tech storeman as you have same requisite of wearing a dust coat whilst plying your trade..!

asside for your nonsensicle drivel the average tech storman is retrade, quite possibly has more experiance in enginering that a lump changer and would be the worst possible amalgamation for armours or bun fighters (if theres any single trades left)

added to that the reason so many people try and go tech storeman at bordom is to escape the place on a short course, not to mention the fact attempting to combine the armours and tech spec courses into one would be rather disasterous in terms of skill fade after training and so on.

i have no doubt that once thye finish consolodating the trades down a bit we will see the rise of the general service corp speread across all 3 services and the trade groups will survive.

in fact i'm pretty sure that was the long range plan for restructuring
