Maybe you should procure a dickshunrey before you contemplate a career in bomb disposal. Since you are clearly not going to be an officer you will have to wait a considerable time in either the RE or the RLC before you get anywhere close to bomb disposal (assuming, of course that you have the aptitude in the first place).

What is your 1st choise (sic)?

Out of (mild) curiosity what made you suddenly decide that you 'wouldn't mind doing bomb disposal.' It's hardly the same as walking home from the pub and deciding that you 'wouldn't mind a kebab.'

The clock is ticking......in front of you is a massive bomb.....to disarm it you have to type the correct letters into a 6 screen digital panel... GCHQ have broken the code...all you have to do is type in the codeword 'CHOICE' and it's home in time for tea and medals.....ohh, hang on...

Ah yes, then it becomes a choise of grey wire or grey wire. Presumably.

I was working with some cat 5e utp, recently. Cut off the blue pair and separate the green pair, ended up with Green and Blue and White. I had a total WTF moment, I can tell you.

red wire , blue wire .......feck that !

Its sooo much more exciting when your colour blind ...
You say that as if it was funny. There was someone on my Advanced EOD Cse (RE) who got 75% of the way through before they realised that he actually was colour blind. One day he was there ........ the next he was gone.

In a RTU way, not a vaporised way I hope?

Indeed; although TBH we didn't do a great deal of cutting red, blue or was it green wires anyway. The majority of our course seemed to involve moulding lumps of PE4 into intricate shapes and placing them onto various categories of UXO; I suppose it was a form of Anarchistic Play Doh. We also spent a considerable amount of time laughing at the Crabs who, for some bizarre reason, thought that wearing a silly hat on range days somehow made them more charismatic and less dull ........ obviously, it didn't.

I've had far more success with kebabs. I've been to the US recently and was even able to adapt and overcome kebobs!

I can tell from this early stage, from only your initial email that you need to go look somewhere else.

"I wouldn't mind doing bomb disposal" It's at times like this I still wish I got involved with selection and ATCABs.

Oh well back to training ANSF then. Let's go and see how many actually bothered their arses to come back from EID holiday unless of course the "bus has still broken down"

Nothing breaks down quite as often as a jingly bus; other than maybe the one carrying those mythical nurses from Rinteln to multiple Mess parties across Germany.

None of which matters. I have just come from a site meeting where a couple of EOD techs have identified Browning .50 AA MG barrels as water pipes. I mean... these things are forged steel and weigh a ton. Gawd help us.

Good news!!!! The Jingly bus was fixed and the little tinkers all came back today.
