I'm a REMF! Yep I hold my hands up and admit it, a REMF and a happy one. I have never been one of them, although I met a bloke in a pub once who had a aunt who lived near Hereford or was it Herford? I am a member of a Corps. I have had the honour of serving with RTR, Inf, REME AC Wksp, RLC and Arty. I have just been away playing soldiers for a little while and from this little excursion one thing really hit home. Why is it, that the less front line the unit the more they are interested in playing soldiers! The Inf, Tankies etc do it because it's their job, but they don't make a big deal of it. In - Out job done. So why is it then that I have spent some time with a non teeth arm unit, where a good percentage of the personnel walk around more tooled up than RAMBO at a surplus store sale. Don't get me wrong I understand the soldier first, tradesman second principle. But FFS Is it a form of Walting?
