Hi all, I have been reading through arrse topics for a few months now looking for answers to questions. Im joining the army this year and I was looking for a a bit of info on the trades I was looking at going into, and the trade Im trying to get info on now is REME metalsmith. I was just wondering what a regular day would be for a metalsmith on camp and what would it be like on operatons in afghanistan as a metalsmith? what would a metalsmith do in afghan? would his time be speant mainly on a base like bastion fixing things? Also how do you go about artificer training, or getting selected for it? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.
