Does anyone know whether Bandsmen, especially Blue Red Blue ones are off on a holiday with sun, sea and shooting in their favourite role as stretcher bearers?
I suspect, as ever, that performance depends on the local bosses and management culture.Blowing their horn was regarded as far more important than any medical training. Has the situation improved since 1992?
First job is as a rifleman mate. And surely if your role covers medical and stretcher bearing roles, then shouldn't you be trained to do that too? Surely being in a band doesn't take up your entire work week? I didn't think so...Govtpros said:If you lot worried about sorting your own jobs, and spent less time bitching about something in which you ain't really got a clue......
One fundemental point that you all seem to be missing is that our Rank title starts with Musician/Bandsmen funnily enough because thats what we do!
I think the cruix of the matter is that your all crapping yourselves...................... 'Most of them wouldn't know what to do with a stretcher, let alone carry one' .................... Possibly true but the same person you've been slagging off in your Unit for the last 10 years and in here may just be the one that runs past you when your legs been blown off.
Besides who in there right mind would want to watch a load of squaddies tabbing around a pass of parade or Troop without sone good old tunes,
I don't think so!
You worry about your issues we'll look after ours, besides your all probably fat storemen anyway that have nothing better to do because you've been left in camp, cause your to fat to get off your backsides....?
So lets have a snipe at the Bandies....!
I'll name that tune in ........................6!Govtpros said:Rifleman? no sorry............... Exactly my point you lot of simple muppets haven't got a clue have you!
Yes we are musicians that is our primary role! and yes it does take up the whole week and some.... there is no medical role or stretcher bearing duties to perform. Due to this fact there is no training for it! but just to put you in the picture ITD's are taken and passed which include shooting guns spotting tanks and rolling about in the mud.... ummm does that take all week????????????
I believe the original idea came about so that joe blogg thicko squaddie could put his left leg forward directly after putting his right........ thus looking a little smarter for the inspecting officer.

That can't be right: if your 'Rank title' described what you do, surely it would be 'Shirtlifting Nonce'?Govtpros said:One fundemental point that you all seem to be missing is that our Rank title starts with Musician/Bandsmen funnily enough because thats what we do!
