A civvie instructor on my upgraders course told us that they will not be changing REME training anytime soon because a General said "you're not messing with training when there's a war on!" Is there any truth in this or was the instructor making it up to shut us up with our questions of "why are we learning about obsolete equipment and techniques"? The reason I ask is because the quote seems a bit daft, training has been changed in many areas over the past few years. I can't imagine anyone thinking you shouldn't change things just because we've got a lot of operational commitments. Imagine someone said "you're not messing with issued equipment when there's a war on"!!!
