REME = WINNETS...

In my 21 years I only ever heard it when I was at 2RTR.

'Wingnuts' in some weird regional vernacular?

It always makes me laugh when i get called a winnet and here is why. Winnets=lumps of poo that hang from a sheeps` arse. REME always follow behind front line troops therefore we are similar to winnets, however does that mean that the people we follow behind are all arses? You can answer that yourselves and then decide if you still want to call us that because, really, all you are doing is calling yourself an arse.

Certainly, as far back as I can remember in 3RTR so that's 1976 - We called Reme chaps - Remlets or mainly 'Winnets' but out of affection!

Spot on, it was a term of endearment really - Lumps of poo that follow you around all day, some of them liked it and some didn't................that's life! :D

As a serving "Winnit", I can say that it doesn't worry me a bit! It's nice to have a cool (!!!) nick-name; and I have indeed done well out of the Christmas draw in my time! :santa:
