  1. Hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone on here is going to?

    To those who have been to the RE visit before, what do you get up to on this visit? I've heard plastic explosive, swimming and boats, any information you can give will be great??

    I haven't received the joining instructions yet only the forms to book my place on this visit so do not know what happens.

    Thanks in advance

  2. RIB boats - meant to be brilliant.
     
  3. I undertook a RE visit, blimey, almost 2 years ago (a June visit).

    When I was there the final evening coincided with the troop commanders course final week and as such we PO's were invited along.

    A very good night and the sense of humour of the engineers definitely present.

    Off the top of my head I don't remember swimming but I do remember the boats.
    Have fun, it is a excellent visit and sells the regiment well.
     
  4. I'm going in a couple of weeks, no mention of boats in the itinerary I have been sent.
     
  5. When you going Rinaldi?

    On the forms I received (on the consent form) I have to agree to accepting the risks of undertaking the following risks:

    -Physical Training
    -Assault Boats
    -Using plastic explosives
    -Swimming
    -Raft race
    -Bridge Building
    -Workshop Tours
    :?

    It all sounds great fun, and from the few comments above I can see it is well liked. :D

  14. Make sure you call all the lads "Fellah" when you get there ;)
     
  15. HAHA!

    I've been told by my best mate, who is in the engineers, never to call anyone "fellah", so I'll take his advice.
