The world and its dog will need an RLC cap badge after Wednesday. According to the latest rumours (that I started), the RAF is to be disbanded and all their helicopters will be given to the AAC who will then be disbanded as well. All will fall under a new super corps called the RLC (Air). REME will also be disbanded and all the BATs will be transferred to that corps as well.
All other trades will just be RLC. The Royal Navy will also be disabanded and will form the nucleus of the new RLC (Sea). There are a few exceptions as aircraft on carriers (until they're scrapped that is and no new ones will ever be built) or cabs stuffed up the chuff of a warship will become part of the RLC (Air and Sea).
The only people who will escape this are the slop jockeys as the ACC will be reformed and Snowdrops, as their duties will be privatized. As the CDS once said "Any moron can raise a barrier".
The REME Battalians are doing a good job of preping us for the RLC. Their main focus after adv trg, cards, darts, sports afternoons and any thing else which does not involve wearing coveralls, seems to be walking to the NAAFI without beret on, hands in pockets whilst nattering on a mobile phone.
Get these people back at first line where they will be employed - soonest! They are not doing their job, thus not developing as tradesmen, thus surplus to the Army's requirements.
The creation of the OPR Company is a good example of things to come . The initial step of separation has been made, making it much easier to turn civvy within a few years. Those remaining might just find themselves with Honi soit qui mal y pense on their head before they know it.
