We let them lick the batteries to see if there's any charge left.Do Signals officers do technical stuff or is that all done by ratings (or whatever ratings are called in the Army)? I understand that the senior NCOs in the Royal Signals are qualified to degree level. Doesn't that kinda leave the officers at a loose end?
What about officers with technical degrees? Can they have a technical career or are they relegated to bailing their platoon out of jail on a Saturday night.
