I was quite taken aback by comments in the REME section where I put a thread saying the REME was probably the only corps where we could do our jobs and a soldiers job too. The response was incredible from some brain dead fcking numpties who seemed to think that I was talking rubbish, and we were no good as soldiers, and this was from fcking REME! It's my sincere belief that ANY man who serves in the army SHOULD be, and MUST be, a soldier first, at least proficeint as a basic infantryman, and if they don't like it, get fcking out and be a civvy. Maybe it was just me. I loved soldiering as much as I loved my trade, and served my complete service with infantry units, and did various courses that were soldier and military qualifications, and most of the people I served with were similiar. Maybe some people are right and the REME is just a bunch of fat ******* that want to do fukall but their trade. If they are right it's a sad day for the army and it wasn't in my experience the case.
