I want to post this topic as i really want to know others opinions on it. most people get fed up of thier jobs from time to time and some do decide to re-trade. heres an example- A class 1 VM(A) who i know is re-trading to Tech Storeman, variety of reasons why but mainly promotion to WO1 and being first in and last out of work reasons. He has been accepted but has been told he will relinquish his rank and revert to Cfn for at least 6 months on re trade. he will then be promoted accordingly from there, all seniority will be lost. To say this is wrong is an understatement, i know people who have transfered from other regiments and corps and kept their rank, have been accelerated to class 1 and have done well out of it. If this is REME looking after its soldiers then god help us!!!
