  1. Greetings,
    We have a RE having his 22 year dine out on Saturday. He is a really good egg and I have been panned into doing his speech. Has anybody out there got any RE type banter/jokes that might go down well. Plus the fact he is leaving a REME mess could add a bit of rivalry. Having never served with you guys Im not sure what to say about your cap badge apart from the VC's and an Oscar which he always reminds us yellow bellies.
    Thanx in advance
