  1. Hey all
    I'm joining up as a Recovery Mechanic, off to phase 1 in a couple of months and i'm looking for an insight into what to expect from training bot phase 1 and 2, What the job is actually going to be like and what life as a rec mech is like.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  2. Well if you can down a pint with a freshly laid turd in the same glass , or play a good old game called freckles you will fit in well to the gutter life of a recy mech of old!
  3. If you can duck dive in a pit full of shit and shreds of blueroll yet still come up laughing, then crack on.
  4. Sounds like my type of thing :eye:
  5. Do you enjoy counting shackles? Hundreds of them?
  6. recy mechs can count to a hundred, learn something new everyday!
  7. No, they count to 10, 10 times.
  8. Only the Cl 1's can count that high,it's all the course consists of. They have Recovery Camp to build trade skills.

  9. I have a mental image of the horse on "That's Life"! :)
  10. Keep your personal appearance up to scratch at all times and compete with the R Signals linemen:
  11. How absolutely unrealistic of life as a reccy mech, how often do you see them in two dress?
