As an RS SNCO and a transferee from the Infantry, I have found myself in a no win situation. Since a former DEME(A) now resigned! decided there was no room in the a technical corps for non tradesman (RS), the jobs we used to have like CQMS, CSM's in Battalions, Wksps and other cushy numbers have now been classed as Un-Spec and therefore open to anyone. We have been bannished to training establishments and doomed to never be promoted or posted again!! But wait, MTI's! What a good idea, lets take guys out of trade, give them skill fade, send them to Pirbright without the necessary qualifications to hinder the training team they are now employed by. Send them away to get coursed up for their new employment just in time for them to go back to trade, pure genius!! What about the poor RS? well most of us are on or close to final tours so there ends the problem. I ask now, what is the future of our corps, and who will train you when the dinasour becomes extinct?
