Old Trades - New trades comparison

#1
Ok I know I m going to sound like an old crusty but being an ex RTG I d love to know were my old trade fits in the new trade structure, I had a quick butchers at the army site

Now being an civvy IT consultant I thought the sigs would have progressed a tad up the IS stream but looking at the trade descreptions and the snaps all I could see was the same old worn out 436's and scam 12's!!! surely in the four years I ve been out its moved on since then...

Could someone please enlighten me?

Red - there can't be many more RTGs left - RTG ceased to be when trade changed name to Tele Op (Tg) back in late 80s. That means last RTG could have been trained at Catterick/Harrogate at least 15 years ago and they should be SSgt or WO by now.

Once GODs trade, always GODs trade. No matter what rank.

Unless you TRA of course, then you are just a low life.

RS Op!! What is that? Some tawt keeps putting it on my CR's.

I am talking about low life who TRA'd out of GODs trade (RTG) into another because they could not handle the pressure of having to be GODs children.

Had a few move from RTG to SYS Op during the late 80's. Not a lot though, mostly DTG's (handbags) got jiffed to move across.

Are those that trained as RS Op allowed to call themselves as God's trade?
Only if you can transmit and receive morse at 30 WPM (any faster is too close to those very weird chaps) with your left foot while re-tuning to the zero beat with the right foot, thus having your brew in your left hand and fag in the right.

Depends on where he is.

If he stays away from my location - Yeah...in your dreams Rodney.

If he visits - oh how nice Sir, really.


Which one by the way, outgoing or incoming? I know they are changing but unsure of when.

Or even more senior. I just heard that there is a particular Brigadier who was once an RTG.

Funny he never told anyone....

Its funny you never hear of an operator who used to be a brigadier. Maybe we should look into it, the Corp may move in the right direction. 8O
