REME tours

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by fairygothmother, Apr 15, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone have any useful input on what REME tours are like? (VM/VE or Armourer) And REME prospects within the wider TA in general?

    (From an annoyed Signaller who should have been Class 3 Tech by now, if they hadn't dithered before finally binning the trade)
  2. One of my TA VMs is about to deploy at 40+ and most of the others have deployed at some stage of their TA career. On the last trawl REME were looking for Class 1 to Class 3 tradesmen so the chances of deploying as a REME TA tradesman appear to be quite high.

    If you're looking to transfer in and are keen to deploy reasonably quickly I'd suggest VM as Recy Mech & Armourer take way too long to train to a deployable standard.
