Line Belts.........

#1
was just wondering who can wear the oxblood line belt - someone who shall remain un named has recently taken to wearing one after only 7 years man service! as a bitter and twisted jnco who has been passed over board after board i feel disgusted that the liney image has been tarnished by this red headed geek.

All Jnco’s and Sig’s should be wearing Black belts.
Sgt’s Brown
Senior Lineman or SSgt Oxblood
But you are all Dvr’s so who cares…

When i was in - lineys and telemechs were the only ones who could wear them as they were the "line" trades....

Lineys wore thiers dark tan and we telemechs stained ours black with polish.

No one else wore them end of dit.

PS - Still got mine.

The belts were only to keep up your trousers, after they were filled with the shrapnel from jew jars Won from playing Nommy.

In 22 years as a liney, I never heard of this set of "rules". Mine was always black, siggy to sgt.

I was told that the only reason that Line Fairies wear leather belts is to keep their pie filled bellies from exploding when they're discovered tossing it off in the back of the line wagon...

Now as a former Relay Op (God's Trade) I realise it is purely because they're all leather faggots and need somewhere to hang their "Oil The Joints" knife as opposed to putting into their lickle pockets like the rest of the world...

Now if that doesn't get a few glasses flying across the NAAFI, I don't know what will.... :wink:

You can't be lineys or ex-lineys on here, unless you have all got together in a Borg like collective and donated your individual brain cells to enable this sort of technological wizardry.

Sorry - i feel asleep reading posts from a Radio Delay.

We all know Telelmechs were the king of trades. nuff said.

Whilst you lot were "digging in" and errecting masts/laying cables, we were in the RAF PAC eating banjo's drinking tea and playing cleg/sgt major/nominations/jenga/watching porn/sleeping in a propper bed

:) any idiot can be cold. takes a clever man to have the RAF Egg Ops bring hot meals 4 times a day in hayboxes for days on end, safe in a nuclear bomb shelter

As previously said. The Oxblodd Line Belt is for ssgt and above, Brown is for Sgt, and the highly polished black one is for Cpl and Below. As for us all being Drivers, there are still a few "Old School" Lineys dotted throughout the Corp.

Cable dog, I refer you to the answer I gave earlier. Is 1975 - 1997 "Old School" enough for you?
spoken like a true sprog!
i bet you still have a red arrse from when the doctor smacked it!
go and put the kettle on...

I was a combat driver in 7 Sigs when this Dvr Liney sh1te started. After my "crash" course at 8 Sigs I went back only to find I had been posted out of Sqn to another ones "Line troop". Upon arrival I was taken down the Sqn bar (remember them) & told to drink a pint of some tw@ts urine mixed with a 1/2 pint of OMD80 in order to "earn ?" my line belt. After my refusal ( having done all that sh1t as a sproggy driver) a good old fashioned punch up ensued. 2 black eyes & an almost ruptured spleen later. I reported for my 1st days work still wearing my belt,green plastic around me lightweights. The only times I wore the line belt was for several Troop photos ( after a bit of persuedion ) & a few exersises where it was handy to hang my snips & Hellerman tool from. To me it was just another bit of kit to bull up & being a combat driver I wanted nothing to do with it. The ex combat Siggys though......... They loved it !!!!!

Regards LT.
