Also digging holes, sleeping in them, then filling them in again. Quite a bit of standing about in the rain too.

Funniest series of replies I've read in a while.

Well done all.

Seriously?

The infantry will continue as always. The cavalry, on the other hand, will be rebadged to RLC forming a new trade of "Driver, AFV", and will be posted to infantry battalions' MT platoons as apc drivers/maintainance.

This will have the happy outcome of keeping cavalrymen in a job while simultaneously releasing those infanteers currently driving/oiling to do a proper job.

Tanks will be reallocated to Support Coys, Armd Recce to Recce Plns, and Robert is your mother's brother. MoD will be able to announce the demise of 5 or 6 entire regiments without loss of ability, so the treasury will be overjoyed too.


Remember, you read it here first....

O1W,

I am inclined to agree with you. How else are the RAC going to continue to justify crew pay when only a tiny proportion of them have crewed their primary vehicles on operations in the past 5 years?

Oh, and back OT: You can do nothing without land forces, without the infantry land forces can do nothing.

Think about it, the RAF Regt, has QCS, drill & ceremonial, can take over the guards II Sqn airborne, can take on the Para roll ( see what I did there), 1, 3, 15, 58, can do the Inf job, & 26 Sqn the RAC/RTR with Chemical Recce. What more could one ask for, all this & more rolled into one.

Alternativel,y All the sick lame and lazy that clog up the QMs in an infatry battalion can go to Barrier duties and well do without the RAF completely, as teh AAC and FAA take over all the mincing duties.

You blokes spent 3.5Mil on hotels, how are you the future of "prudent spending"?

Or the RAF Reg could be replaced with the Army Cadet Force. We will save a fortune on tissues for your weeping quims.
