Sappers dont do EOD they do mine clearance, massive difference. What you need is an AT or ATO...

Something tells me that you are in for some incoming with that statement as you have obviously no clue as to what Engineers actually do!!!!

For your info, why dont you research 33 EOD Engr Regt, Kn0b!!!!

You want somebody well turned out from Glasgow? I think you will be very disappointed.
easy tiger.

Strange that they need to be 40-50, does the job involve a great deal of death and therefore 40-50 is considered to be a good innings?
 
#7
For a business adventure? Is that greatly different from a venture?

"Set the filing cabinets! Hoist the paperclips! Load the photocopiers! TO BATTLE!!"

Something out of a Monty Python film....

Mine clearance is a type of EOD.

What you mean is that AT/ATOs take the lead in IEDD which is massively different from what you have claimed.

All in all the RE probably do more EOD than than the ATs being that Search, Mine Clearance and CMD are all branches of EOD - and the RE take the lead on all of them on operations - where it counts!

You live up to your username... you Snozzer.

If the numpty who says RE's dont do EOD is to believed i must have dreamt 5 years of my service.
The last time i looked the mod website
http://www.army.mod.uk/royalengineers/careers/specialist/bombdisposal.htm

HK-53,

I received an E-Mail from you in which you said 30-40, can you PM me with some details about who you are and what your own background with this is, I know you are former RMP but a little more info would go a lot furtehr in finding you the right person, I have forwarded the info to one person from Glasgow so you may well hear from him in the next day or 2...

Oh, and for Snozzers' info, the chap in question is former RE EOD (yes, believe it or not, we DO EXIST!). Now crawl away and stir your manure elsewhere instead of coming here and insulting one of the most operational Units in the British Army, you maggot...

Was just about to offer some unbiased support then, until the 'where it counts' nosh was written.

Ever heard of Op Midway d1ckhead and as i recall CMD was purely the remit of RLC during Op Banner. CMD on the Ops outside the UK is JF and there are often more NONE RE assests involved in this.

Mine Clearance you can have gladly.

Search you can also have gladly but two points:

1. It was oft said in NI that REST found feck all, it was always the Unit Search teams who did the best job. Now i can't really comment on the validity of this, but that was always the opinion in NI even among senior commanders, Military and Police.

2. Search operations are only conducted when there is a possibility of an IED being present, when it becomes a probability thats when an RLC operator clears the area.

Strange, I only did one search whilst with 33 Indep Fd Sqn RE, found 1xM60, 1x FN Mal plus one other rifle which I forgot the name of. Oh and lots of ammo. :D

Those that are interested in HK53's original post can PM him as he requested.

Thread locked, cos I am bored with moderating yet another RE v RLC EOD thread. There are plenty of others on pages below for those who want to continue the "debate"
