my son is a Reccy Mech thats what they give him at the end of phase two, Reccy Mech is a restricted trade thats why they have asked you to choose a new trade. Ask and you will recive


PS dont forget my cut

its a trade that is undermaned so they do there very best to keep people interest, "Restricted" may not be the correct term

Go for it Ally, I am in a REME Battalion and can tell you Recovery Mechanics work like ten men, the only qualification you need is to be vile and be able to participate in "boys" antics at every opportunity.

Do it, you wont regret it one bit, Recy mech is the best trade to go for if you want excitement and job satisfaction. You'll work like a maniac on Operational tours, Recovering disabled tanks off the battlefield will give you an immense sense of pride.

You just need too keep badgering him too let you transfare, failing that tell him you want out and watch the result, you`l be at SEME in no time.

You should have got one from your Careers Office when you signed on the line.
Your Admin Office should have contact details for the office who deals with Golden Hello's. He Should already know about you, if not, check with your Careers Office, they might have kept a copy.
