As this has no doubt been mentioned this is the ARMY Rumour Service so please avoid contaminating our happy space with your puerile inane banter.
On an educational front the British Army does more than "Fire Guns" hence the spread of career paths within it. Putting out fires however is one remit we would've rather avoided.
Just remember who had to pick up the pieces when you "heroes" were doing what you do best mindlessly whinge about how much you earn. If you wanted more money maybe staying on at school and embarking on a more skilled career path would have been a good idea.
We don't care if it is your fault, your union's fault, your employers fault or the fcuking station cat's fault. The equation is very simple:
If you go on strike, we get cancelled leave, less time with our families etc etc. and have to stand in. We therefore have a natural degree of animosity towards you.
As an aside, I met a station commander the other day who had quit his union in disgust at the way they had handled things and was quite prepared to break any strike. If only there were more like that. (he was ex military of course )
