After reading this post in the REME TRF thread I thought I would ask the question is REME TA a waste of time and f$$king money? Thanks for the post though warpdriveengaged, of real substance and quality! I was just wondering if anyone out there has any figures about how much a REME Bn costs to run per annum, including the costs of the running the workshop, the HQ element, the barracks, the quarters and all the stuff that goes into them right down to each individual fork? And against this how much it costs to run a TA REME Bn and then compare the amount of operational days were produced by each. I know that there is a difference in the standard of training etc, these have long been debated, and itâs just facts and figures that I'm after. And before anyone asks yes I am REME TA and no Iâm not trying to wind anyone up, all Iâm after is some reasoned debate.
