I heard that the RE and REME were going to be subsumed into the RLC, to make the RRLC*.

I think they were implying that the Army will be splitting into 'teeth arms' (Inf, Cav etc) and combat support (RE, RLC, AAC etc).

Did they tell you this after sending you for some spare bubbles for the spirit level?

WOW! stop there Lobster my friend. 1983 and my nose still hurts. G1098 check............

Big brickie to me, "bayonet, go get me new bubbles for the spirit levels"
me to big brickie, " 4cough you twat, I'm not stupid!"
SMACK!

The old wooden spirit levels could have the glass 'bubbles' replaced, they were set in plaster of paris type stuff. Brickies were trainned to change and set them.

Every single time there is a major SDR, this comes up and it always proves to be balls. In any case, it'd be idioctic in the extreme to merge two fundamentally different Corps just because they both have 'engineers' in the title.

The last ex-RE Posties still have 4 years to push. I know numbers aren't your strong point! :scratch:

Like your logic wedge, but on the evidence of "political thinking and understanding" - the SoS Defence probably thinks they're one and the same already. :)
