I'm a Scaley and I haven't got a clue what he's talking about either. It seems to be the season for random topics that no-one outside of the original poster actually understands on the Militant Vodafone board.
Not everyone wearing the RLC badge is a driver/stacker/sloppy/pioneer. So why the assumption anyone under a Jimmy is the same as the guys int he Signals Plt?
Same goes for other capbadges...
Drive that tank? I can't i'mnot a driver.
Fire that gu, can't i am an OP Ack.
Even in the Infantry, who ALL start as riflemen, there will be those that haven't been a 'Infantryman' per se for quite some time and have been in the QMs or RP staff or something.
If someone wonders why a Signalman can't use a radio (if not a radio user trade), punch the wonderer to the ground and p1ss on him. Strip his unconcious body and move his limbs, roughly, in to the position of hte Figure of Mercury. If you have time scrawl 'Certa Cito' across his forehead. Pen will do, but a knife could be used if the person annoyed you to much.
And if they do is it possible to teach Bowman on it? You can teach someone to press a pressel and say hello in a couple of days, teaching someone a system with an instruction book that's roughly the same thickness as the deck armour of the Yamato in anything less than a couple of weeks isn't going to happen and it's pointless for storemen, mechs, lineys etc.
I'd even argue that radios and VP isn't the core business of our Corps anymore, the likes of Cormorant, Falcon, ARRC Infra, Richelieu, J1/J4, satcoms etc are far more important to most of the Corps these days than Bowman.
