Can anyone explain the deal with the apparent payrise when you get your class 2 as a armourer? All I've heard is there is some form of payrise but not a clue what it is. Sexual favours may or may not be given for answers.
Ahh I'm happy locked away with all the guns, that I can live with. While up doing my driving at leconfield one of the full screws claimed the last armourer he knew had a room full of knives and was most likely insane. I probably didn't help my trade by showing him my collection of pointy objects.
From what I hear the Army is having trouble retaining VMs Rechy Mechs and probably never enough of us weapon breakers around anyway and yet they insist on keeping us all on the lower paybands. The first tech who comes in to remind me he is higher payband gets spanked.
hard to generalise with the tech spankers, had many a good un on my arv. plenty of banter, tie them up, kidnap at 2nd line, but had them up to nipples in ice cold wetter giving me a hand. i have never argued that the cells they have up top is worth a penny a too more. take your extra money you spankers, come crew my arrv, bring some beer, stow as you go, fix my arv and the sqn's kit, i will bring you a brew in the dark hours on the point, but expect a little banter and a little persecution.
all you get is an increment rise on getting class2, still low band till you get promoted. you then go to level 5 high band..
and yes you do have to do sexual favours, and get locked away in a cellar like any good weapon polisher should
