Certainly beats "Thanks awfully, you're the finest bunch of 32 Engineer Regiments I have ever worked with"
 
Good send off.
I remember 32 when they were the "Armoured" Regiment.

And those "Hush Puppy" boots look totally wonk

Now this is how an Officer of Royal Engineers should reply to such nonsense.


I just couldn't help myself.

Loved his response... was he coached before hand?
Not required.

Fijian cultural awareness/orientation is included in command courses at all levels.

Or is that only Jock units?

A whole Regiment of Maori Walts?

Saints preserve us.
Nah, they are performing the Cibi, the old Fijian meke, which was replaced by the Bole in 2012. While the Colonel responds with Ka Mate, the haka written by Te Rauparaha, which is quite appropriate for a Sapper as the Musket Wars saw the early development of Pa ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pā_(Māori) ) which caused us no end of trouble during the Land Wars

On that basis, to my original post, make Amdt 1

Delete "Maori" and "Walts"
Insert "Fijians"

Still good though!
 
Thought the drill was pretty crap though! Where was the rank discipline and how can you parade with berets! Standards lads Standards! Bhahhhh
 
Well it certainly beats the normal drive round in a Titan/Trojan or insert whatever armoured vehicle waving to the lads!
