Job Titles

#1
Now I admit I'm a bit slow off the mark but when did the job titles change in the RLC and just for interest, why?

Role Finder - British Army Website

We now have as examples;

Logistic Ammunition Technician
Logistic Supply Specialist
Logistic Support Driver
Logistic Movement Coordinator
Logistic Boat Crewman
Logistic Fuel Specialist
Logistic Support Chef
Logistic Postal Courier
Logistic Port Operator
and best of all a Logistic Hygiene Technician

Is this part of a plan to "brand" the RLC?

******* waste of money IMHO
 
#2
Logistic Boat Crewman??

No one told me I wasn't a Marine Engineer anymore, and the Seaman/Navigator trade has only just been rebranded to Mariner.

Just clicked the link, no ME shown, so I wonder if I am a crewman or a pilot, even the descriptions don't help.

No one told me I was a Logistic Ammunition Technician either, I see no need to be defined as "pertaining to logistics" - I'd say it's pretty obvious with my cap badge, stable belt and TRF. It's not like the rest of the Army cap badges have a similar trade to mistake it with.

A few trades have been missed off, is this a ploy by DRLC to can them in the hope no one would notice?
TBH I couldn't be arrsed to write the rest out,.

Is this the first step in a return to the trade 2000 idea of everyone a Logistician then spec traded.

The RLC page of the site doesn't have the changed job titles though, so may all be bollox.

Then again no suprise there.

There are other recognition features such as pregnant servicewoman, laminated biff chit, ammo pouches full of Ginsters :wink:

Almost as funny as "Soldier first, then Tradesman" :wink:
