New Martello Tower Stable Belt

#1
Hey guys, just been on the RE Shop to get a new Stable Belt and found a new Buckle on there. Its got the Martello Tower which is the emblem for 170 Infra Sp in Chilwell. Who gets to wear it?

49 Para Engineers. Don't even think about wearing one until you've passed pie-week.

The idea behind the Martello Tower buckle was to instill pride etc in the technical roster. The powers that be then said if you have been posted to 170 or MWF regardless of trade you could wear it. Kinda takes away from the idea that it's just for the cone heeds.

Yeah, you would look rather pants if you put all that effort into getting a new stable belt design, manufactured and approved by RE RHQ only to not wear it yourself.

Knocker, no wah intended, but is that Chard on your avatar?

If so, you may want to know that - shortly before Rorke's Drift - he had just graduated from something best described as "the Long Fortifications Course" in Paris, and was regarded as something of a geek by his muckers. Furthermore, at the bridge site, he wasn't using military artisans to build his bridge, he was using the natives - Locally Employed Civilians (Contractors) in today's parlance. The only other RE on-site was a LCpl - his batman.

Chard was a PQE.

Just thought you ought to know.
