Who, in their right mind, poses for a photograph directly underneath an ISO container that is suspended 20 foot overhead!

I would love to know whose idea it was to actually conduct a briefing in such a dangerous location; take a photograph as evidence; and then think it is a good idea to publish it!

What an advertisement for the management of Health and Safety in a Corps of professional engineers.

As it is DEME(A) stood under the container perhaps you have answered your own questions.

If you're that upset why don't you give him a bell and let him know, better still just ring him up and 'COCK!' him.

Whatever slagging I may incur from the masses here f*ck it but the big fella and his cronies should know better!!

No matter if you think your 'old school' and Health and Safety is a load of bo**ox the fact is he is the head of our Corps and is showing blatant disregard. A nice picture it paints of our Corps!!

As for phoning him up and telling him....well if his sidekick didn't have the gonads to tell him then I certainly aint....I like my gonads where they are thank you.

Ah sarcasm I love it.....however as you well know it would not only be wrong for the cadet to be smoking in the background it would be illegal to sell the said ciggie to the cadet as they would be under 18yrs old.

The outrage bus is rolling along well...it will be in full swing when later today Sky News reports that in fact a cadet was caught smoking in an ISO container!!

His punishment is published on page 197 of the most recent Cfn Mag.

As long as he signed the before use register it was all alright.

Before use registers out rank both gravity and basic common sense........

I remember a picture in Cfn magazine showing a REME Captain "Supervising" a chally packlift. WTF????????
How many here relied upon the experience of a REME officer to do that?

Its his Train Set he can do what he wants!
(I eagerly await the 'Confidence Test' amdt to DES)

Maybe just maybe he is gearing up to leave the Corps and feck off do some lifting tackle/ISO job, loads of Cfn Mag face time showing how not to do it and rush in mega legislation just before he leaves (a la Tefal Head and VOSA). We get to trudge on with an Alpha Bravo two fat ladies (AB88) on steriods with bells and whistles that we have to adhere to.

Oi Cfn Knob Jockey get out from under that suspended load
But DEME(A) does it Sarge.......
I guess he does Son, i guess he does but take that silly false moustache off anyhow.

I just say it was a wasted opportunity - oh for a quick release shackle. :twisted:

That followed him round all day. His man with the sun parassol wasn't allowed into theatre, Crab Air said one of his 3 million pieces of paperwork he had to have signed before entering Qatar had been filled out incorrectly, and his passport didn't have 15 years left to run after he got back from his visit!!!
