What a load of old cobblers! Go on, list the duties that MP undertake? And now talk about being an armourer. Seriously?Speaking to an ex REME armourer yesterday. He says the trade is crying out for people and you get a ton of tours of thats what you're into. As for RMP, there's a RMP police station here. They dont seem to do much and mainly look bored out their minds.
REME will give you a trade, RMP will earn you the disdain of every unit you serve with.
253 RMP AR feed people into Diplomatic Protection roles as well as some interesting work.Note RESERVE recruitment. Both cap badges will do interesting stuff. If you want to fix vehicles go REME. If you want to pretend to be a Police Officer in the Army go RMP .
And I'll add RMP deployed reserve SIB Sgt (called up for 12 months) to Iraq when Telic was a thing.
Pretty sure they don't. There may be people at 253 who have done/do Diplomatic Protection, but they're not a official/recognised "feed" into it any more than other AR units/professions.253 RMP AR feed people into Diplomatic Protection roles as well as some interesting work.
